Because we cannot travel with a lot of books one of the jobs that I have to do before we leave is go through some of the books that we have and extract background material and some quotes. Tonight the location I am working on is Berkeley, California. We will be visiting both Chez Panisse, Alice Waters' famous restaurant and the Edible Schoolyard which is the main benificiary of the Chez Panisse Foundation.
There is plenty of zesty text for me to scan but I had forgotton just how charming the little children's cookbook 'Fanny at Chez Panisse' can be. And powerful.
Alice Waters writes in the first person using the voice of her daughter. History, philosophy, recipies and humour - it has the lot. If you have never read it do treat yourself to a copy. You will read it to yourself and then to children, delightful!
