Alice Waters OFFSITE @ FSM CAFE, UC BERKELEY
September 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Celebrating the publication of Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook, the long-awaited memoir from cultural icon and culinary standard bearer Alice Waters who recalls the circuitous road and tumultuous times leading to the opening of what is arguably America’s most influential restaurant.
When Alice Waters opened the doors of her “little French restaurant” in Berkeley in 1971 at the age of 27, no one ever anticipated the indelible mark it would leave on the culinary landscape–Alice least of all. Fueled in equal parts by naivete and a relentless pursuit of beauty and pure flavor, she turned her passion project into an iconic institution that redefined American cuisine for generations of chefs and food lovers.
