A Sumptuous Feast....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering (Hardcover)
Just spent the afternoon with this gorgeous book and feel as if I've whiled away the day lingering over a sparkling champagne lunch with Alice and friends. I've only had the pleasure of dining with them once - what a shame, considering the many trips I've made to San Francisco. I had expected a book of essays with pictures sprinkled throughout but instead found a virtual trip back in time, a beautiful, evocative picturebook with essays sprinkled here and there. If you're expecting recipes, I'd recommend one of the many Chez Panisse cookbooks as there isn't a recipe to be found here. And you won't mind, either. Worth every penny. I'm ready to start packing for a quick trip to Berkley. Merci beaucoup, Alice!

I know it's in Berkeley and I HAVE dined there, as mentioned in my review. Thanks, though.
