Clarke's is the legendary Notting Hill restaurant that pioneered seasonal fine dining in British cuisine. To mark the restaurant's 30th birthday year, Sally Clarke, the award winning chef, restauranteur and author has chosen a handful of recipes for each of her favourite 30 ingredients.
Chez Panisse opened its doors in 1971. Founded by Alice Waters, the restaurant is rooted in her conviction that the best-tasting food is organic, locally grown, and harvested in ecologically sound ways by people who are taking care of the land for future generations. The quest for such ingredients has always determined the restaurant̥s cuisine, and, over the course of forty years, Chez Panisse has helped create a community of local farmers and ranchers whose dedication to sustainable agriculture assures the restaurant a steady supply of fresh and pure ingredients.
In Forty Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering, Alice takes readers on her journey from the humble and visionary beginnings of the restaurant, through its rise and the acclaim, to the Caf?_ and the influential Chez Panisse Foundation. Organized by decade, the book includes a wealth of archival material and photographsÌÔmenus; invitations; pictures of Alice at the restaurant and around the world, with those who have passed through her lifeÌÔand interviews from public figures and cooks who have been inspired by or mentored at the restaurant.
This tribute to the delicious food revolution that began with Alice Waters and Chez Panisse is an important work for anyone who cares about food, sustainability, and the powerful legacy that Alice has built.
