I know good food. I grew up in California and I've lived in Europe for over twenty years. At our house we say we like our meals "delicious, fast, cheap and easy." Alice Water's Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook inspires by reminding the reader when to eat what and how. Perusing the menus makes you want to rush off to the market at dawn. I love Alice Water's advice, "Steer clear of that safe, old chocolate mousse and try something new for a change" (I paraphrase). Now at home we like "delicious, fast, cheap, easy and NEW". Highly recommend to the adventurous cook.

Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook

Having heard about Chez Panisse and my sister finally having the opportunity to dine at the restaurant, I gave the book to my sister as a gift. She seems quite happy to have the cookbook (she is a fabulous cook!) and says she has plans to try a number of Alice Water's wonderful recipes!

A Classic You Must Have

There's a special reason we go to the books of the great chefs. It's not to throw a meal together in 2 minutes, or to make sure we will find a dish we can cook with no trouble in two pans in our kitchens at home. It's to look inside an imagination and see what someone can achieve with ingredients and passion when it's what they do all day, every day, with devotion.As Nigella Lawson said about another writer, "I often cook, if not directly from it, then inspired by it (which is more telling)". This is a truly inspiring work, one you will go back to again and again. From the buckwheat crepes with glaced fruit and eau de vie, to the amazing amazing fish soup, simple dishes with corn and over the top reworking of french classics, the judgement of flavours and textures is perfect. Ignore Water's fetish about perfect lettuce, read it, and just go to the kitchen. 10 stars out of five, the best of all the Waters books.
