Teaser Tuesday: Alice Waters and Chez Panisse




The menus for the week were posted every Monday. Lots of people, the clientele still being largely local, just strolled by, took a look at the hand-printed bill of fare in the picture frame on the front of the building, perhaps came in and discussed it with Alice or a cook, and made their plans accordingly..

-- Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: The Romantic, Impractical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution by Thomas McNamee.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Hi Gilion,

I am not really a great non fiction, or memoir reader, however this does sound good. Alice sounds like a character with an indomitable spirit and full of grit and determination to have things done her way.

I can just imagine, after reading your teaser lines, being able to read a menu, then go in and discuss it with the owner or the head chef .... NOT!!

That must surely be the sign of a supremely confident person and one who truly does put her customers first!

I hope that you enjoy the book and thanks for sharing those lines.
