Fanny at Chez Panisse: A Child's Restaurant Adventures with 46 Recipes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chez Panisse is a restaurant in Berkeley, California, run by Alice Waters and her large group of friends. Her daughter Fanny's stories of this busy place are a friendly and funny introduction to the delights of real restaurant life, and her recipes show how easy and inexpensive it is to make good food with basic ingredients and simple techniques.

Opening up the magic world of cooking to children, Alice Waters describes, in the words of seven-year-old Fanny, the path food travels from the garden to the kitchen to the table. Teaching kids where food really comes from not just from the market but from farms and people who care about the earth, Fanny at Chez Panisse has lessons on the importance of eating with your hands, of garlic and of composting and recycling. It is also a delightful beginner's cookbook with 46 recipes that will tempt children into the desire to cook and eat with whole hearts, alert minds and all the senses. From banana milkshakes and green apple sherbet to cherry tomato pasta and black beans and sour cream, as well as spaghetti and meatballs, french fries and pizza, there is something here for every child to prepare and enjoy.

Synopsis:

Seven-year-old Fanny describes her adventures with food and cooking at her mother's restaurant in Berkeley, California. Includes forty-two recipes.

Synopsis:

A whole new audience of parents and children is ready to be enchanted by renowned cook and cookbook author Alice Waters' charming book of stories and recipes told from the viewpoint of a little girl whose mother runs a restaurant. 75 watercolor illustrations.

About the Author

Alice Waters is the visionary chef and owner of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. She is the author of four cookbooks, including Chez Panisse Vegetables and Fanny at Chez Panisse. In 1994 she founded the Edible schoolyard at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, a model curriculum that integrates organic gardening into academic classes and into the life of the school; it will soon incorporate a school lunch program in which students will prepare, serve, and share food they grow themselves, augmented by organic dairy products, grains, fruits, vegetables, meat, and fish — all locally and sustainably produced.

David Lance Goines is a Berkeley printer and designer whose friendship with Alice Waters goes back more than thirty years. His famous posters, including his annual Chez Panisse birthday posters, are in the permanent Collections of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre in Paris, the Achenbach Foundation at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.

Fanny, the daughter of Alice Waters, is a girl who experiences a kitchen, a business, and a community from the inside out. In the beginning, Fanny safely surveys the kitchen activity from her place inside a huge pot sitting on the kitchen counter. As she grows, she learns how to help, how to cook, and how to get things done. There are recipes and role models. This is an excellent cookbook for people of all ages. It is lovely and luscious!

I absolutely love this book. My mother gave it to me when I was much, much younger and while it didn't inspire me to race into the kitchen right then and start making things, it definitely planted a seed that has finally germinated. I am very much a cook these days, and I credit my mother and this book for giving me the ideas and the interest to get me to this point. I highly recommend this book, especially to young girls who will adore Fanny, to anyone who wants to help spark a cooking interest in a child.
