Chez Panisse

This is our second visit to Chez Panisse and the Edible School Yard. On both occasions we have been unable to talk to Alice Waters. We did however catch up with her assistant, a young Australian, David Prior.

We sat in a shady spot under a huge wisteria that covers the entrance to the restaurant.
Mike had to find the owner of a lovely little dog that seemed intent on getting his barks into a documentary. Luckily they were charming (as was he) and we were able to record an interesting conversation with David who filled us in on the history and progress being made by the Foundation.

Tasteful and decorative - what else would you expect here?

The daily delivery from the Acme Bakery.

David takes us round the back to look at the produce that has just arrived.

Fresh Garlic

New Seasons Potatoes

. . . and freshly picked branches of cherries for the table and decoration.

The day concluded with a wonderful meal in the downstairs restaurant where we enjoyed all of the above produce carefully prepared by the chefs who are free to choose what ever menu they want on a Monday.
