By Alice Waters.

An indispensable reference and inspiration from chef Alice Waters, whose work has championed seasonal and locally-grown food from Berkeley, California for decades. The Art of Simple Food takes the reader from stocking the kitchen to mastering the fundamentals of cooking, Alice's way, while the The Art of Simple Food II advises further on growing a kitchen garden (in a backyard, porch, or fire escape) and the relationship between taste, cooking, and gardening. Both serve as a guide for all, from the novice to the expert, full of Alice's own approachable and inventive recipes.
