About This Book
The Cheese Board was there, a hole in the wall with a line out the door, before Chez Panisse was so much as a gleam in my eye. When the restaurant was conceived, I wanted it to be in North Berkeley so the Cheese Board would be nearby, because I knew I would be among friends. -Alice Waters, from the ForewordWhen a tiny cheese shop opened in Berkeley, California, in 1967, there was little hint of what the store-and the neighborhood-would grow into over the next 30 years. The Cheese Board became a collective a few years later and Chez Panisse opened across the street, giving birth to one of the country'¬?s most vibrant food neighborhoods, the epicenter of California'¬?s culinary revolution. Equal parts bakery, cheese store, pizzeria, and gathering place, the Cheese Board is a patchwork of the local community, where a passion for good food runs deep. THE CHEESE BOARD presents over 100 recipes for the store'¬?s classic breads, pastries, and pizzas, along with a history of the collective and an extensive cheese primer.
  • More than 150 classic recipes from one of the San Francisco Bay Area'¬?s most acclaimed culinary destinations.
  • Includes a history of the store, a cheese primer, and over 50 duotone photographs that capture the food and personality of the Cheese Board.
