Summary:
"In this authorized biography of Alice Waters, Thomas McNamee narrates the colorful behind-the-scenes story of Alice Waters, Chez Panisse, and the food revolution that took root and flourished in Berkeley, California, and spread across the nation. McNamee was granted access to Alice's friends, her family, and private Chez Panisse archives. He documents the restaurant's journey from its wild early days of burned-out waiters, inconsistent and ambitious amateur chefs, and thirty thousand dollars in "missing" wine to its status as one of America's greatest restaurants."--BOOK JACKET.
