I have never been to Chez Panisse, as I live in the mountains a thousand miles away. But I have enjoyed Alice Waters' cookbooks, and found inspiration there. I like to make up my own menus for fancy dinner parties, but they are not on the same level of what Patricia does. This book has made me rethink the whole process, and dream of doing offset printing.
At the end she describes her process and shows some photos of work as it is progressed. I wish she would do a whole book just on this. It looks like such a labor of love. Very time consuming !
I can't imagine any cook, artist, printer or book lover not being thrilled with this. Renews my hope that all is not lost in our modern world.

This is not a cook but at all. It just really shows all the menus Chez Panisse has had over they years. I was hoping for a few recipes but I did not find any.Published on February 12, 2014 by Alex Martinez
I love the use of botanical art for restaurant menus. And not just any restaurant, but Chez Panisse. The illustrations are lovely.Published on November 9, 2013 by Loisart
One of Chez Panisse's beautiful books! It's more of an art book than a cook book. A must-have book to display in your kitchen!Published on July 6, 2013 by Puff
