Nothing makes me happier than a new cookbook, especially one with lots of pictures and little text! It's not that I don't enjoy reading, I just prefer letting the pictures inspire me. Sometimes it's nice not knowing exactly what goes into a recipe and improvising to create something all your own.

Alice Waters and Chez Panisse
You can't tell the story of Chez Panisse, Berkeley's famed restaurant, without relating that of its diminutive founder, proprietor, and sometime chef, Alice Waters. This is what Thomas McNamee does most handily in hisAlice Waters and Chez Panisse, a chronicle that begins with the seat-of-the-pants opening night of the "counterculture" venture in 1971, and ends 35 years later with Waters's restaurant an American institution.
