The Cheese Board: Collective Works (Bread, Pastry, Cheese, Pizza)

The Cheese Board: Collective Works (Bread, Pastry, Cheese, Pizza) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a tiny cheese shop opened for business on a quaint Berkeley street in 1967, there was little hint of what the shop — and the neighborhood — would grow into over the next 30 years. The Cheese Board became a collective a few years later, and Chez Panisse opened across the street, giving birth to one of the country's most vibrant food neighborhoods, the epicenter of California's culinary revolution. Known and loved by locals and travelers alike, the Cheese Board is equal parts bakery, cheese store, pizzeria, and gathering place — a patchwork of the local community, where a passion for good food runs deep. For the first time ever, The Cheese Board presents the classic recipes that have made the store one of the San Francisco Bay's Area most acclaimed gourmet destinations. Complete with a history of the shop and neighborhood, a cheese primer, and all the classic recipes — including the corn-cherry scones, cheese rolls, and zampanos, all of which have a cult following — The Cheese Board is as rich and varied as the institution that inspired it.

Review:

"The book is as much the story of the shop's evolution as it is a cookbook, and numerous reminiscences and anecdotes from loyal longtime members of the collective are scattered throughout." Library Journal

Synopsis:

The Cheese Board was there, a hole in the wall with a line out the door, before Chez Panisse was so much as a gleam in my eye. When the restaurant was conceived, I wanted it to be in North Berkeley so the Cheese Board would be nearby, because I knew I would be among friends. -Alice Waters, from the ForewordWhen a tiny cheese shop opened in Berkeley, California, in 1967, there was little hint of what the store-and the neighborhood-would grow into over the next 30 years.
