Written by the daughter of Alice Waters, doyenne of Chez Panisse a Californian restaurant that changed the thinking about food being seasonal and local, with a focus on good ingredients rather than cheffiness. Waters promoted the farm to table way of eating and is an activist for good food in schools. This memoir is a series of vignettes or glimpses of Fanny's life growing up living above the shop ... A hymn to the pleasures of life, with summers spent in the South of France and good friends equally passionate about food.
[A] lovely memoir
A hymn of praise to simple home-cooked food
