    Culinary standard bearer Alice Waters recalls
    the circuitous road and tumultuous times
    leading to the opening of her world-famous
    restaurant Chez Panisse and the beginning
    of her quest to promote organic, locally
    grown produce in America. In this memoir,
    Waters writes about her childhood in New
    Jersey, her time at UC Santa Barbara (when
    extracurricular drinking got her kicked out
    of her sorority on ‘morals charges’), her
    move to UC Berkeley when she was drawn
    into the free speech movement, her life-
    defining year in Paris and her short career
    as a teacher, which was curtailed when she
    refused to stop wearing see-through tops to
    work. Her evocations of Paris and of hippie-
    era Berkeley are loving, and her account of
    coming to the realisation that she wanted to
    promote a very particular style and type of
    food and eating is fascinating.
