Alice Waters Cooks Simply Fresh

Five-star Chez Panisse restaurant prepares simple, fresh and local cuisine

For over 40 years, Alice Waters and her team of world-class chefs have been running one of the country’s most celebrated five-star restaurants: Chez Panisse. Located in Berkeley, California, the menu of this quaint bistro is anything but ordinary. That’s because it changes everyday based on what’s readily available from local farmers. “I don’t really know until I come in and look at the list from the garde manger exactly what I'm going to make,” Waters says. “(That way) you have the greatest possibility of serving food that is really ripe and at its peak…and it’s evident to the people who are coming in the restaurant.”
