Alice Waters was born on April, 28, 1944, in Chatham, New Jersey. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1967 with a degree in French cultural studies before training at the International Montessori School in London. Her daughter, Fanny, was born in 1983.
"After reading Alice Water's new book, I'm ready to proclaim her a
culinary oracle. She dazzles me-the things she does with
garden-fresh ingredients, the unexpected and wonderful results she
obtains. This is a glorious book by a great chef."-Paula
"These recipes are fun to read, a good combination of the tried and true and the extrasensory perception that is almost a trademark of Alice's cooking. I especially like havuing the four seasonal sections in which the accent is on what is fresh then. The fruits and herbs and everything else that goes on the table are of that one special time in the year."-M.F.K. Fisher
"Pizza? What an odd, ordinary thing for one of America's most respected establishments to put on the menu. When the pizza came and I tasted it, I saw what Alice Waters was about: the ordinary made extraordinary by the use of fine unusual ingredients-in this case girolles in a general creaminess, spiked with a little Parmesan and onion-put together by a skillful and unusual taste."-Jane Grigson
