Abstract:

Contains photographs and other pictorial material documenting the Berkeley restaurant Chez Panisse and the career of its founder Alice Waters. Consists chiefly of snapshots of Chez Panisse staff and events, restaurant views, and miscellaneous persons and events associated with Chez Panisse and/or the food and dining culture of California. Waters' career is documented from the earliest days of the restaurant. Other Waters projects such as Café Fanny and the Edible Schoolyard (at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, Berkeley) are also depicted, as are various friends, family members and associates. The collection also depicts various parties, street fairs, market and travel scenes, as well as several dishes served at Chez Panisse and elsewhere.
In addition to Alice Waters, other noteworthy individuals depicted in the collection include Chez Panisse chefs Lindsey Shere, Paul Bertolli, Jeremiah Tower, Mark Miller, Jean-Pierre Moulle, Patricia Curtan, Victoria Kroyer (later to become Victoria Wise), David Lebovitz, Willie Bishop and Jonathan Waxman. Other individuals pictured in the collection include wine expert Stephen Singer (who was married to Waters from 1985-1997); Waters' and Singer's daughter Fanny Singer; graphic artist David Lance Goines; film producer Tom Luddy (Waters' partner during the early years of Chez Panisse); wine merchant Kermit Lynch; chefs, food writers and restaurateurs such as Marion Cunningham, Elizabeth David, Edna Lewis, James Beard, Paul Prudhomme, Julia Child, Cecilia Chiang, Jacques Pépin, Jerry Budrick, Richard Olney, Wolfgang Puck, Mark Peel, Josephine Aladro and Ruth Reichl; filmmaker Les Blank; and vintners Lulu Peyraud and Jean-Marie Peyraud.
