Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook  by Alice Waters

In her recently released memoir, the legendary Alice Waters details her journey from cloistered suburbs to free-thinking Berkeley, where the 1960’s culture ultimately helped shape the foundation of Chez Panisse—her “little French restaurant” that heralded the arrival of clean, ingredient-driven California cuisine. Pairing photos and letters of her past with recipes and stories, the three-time James Beard award winner and founder of the Edible Schoolyard gives readers a taste of what it took to make a trailblazer. $27.00, CrownPublishing.com
