    Title: COMING TO MY SENSES : The Makings of a Counterculture Cook
    Author: WATERS ALICE
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The long-awaited memoir from cultural icon and culinary standard bearer Alice Waters recalls the circuitous road and tumultuous times leading to the opening of what is arguably America's most influential restaurant.

    In Coming to My Senses Alice retraces the events that led her to 1517 Shattuck Avenue and the tumultuous times that emboldened her to find her own voice as a cook when the prevailing food culture was embracing convenience and uniformity.

    Moving from a repressive suburban upbringing to Berkeley in 1964 at the height of the Free Speech Movement and campus unrest, Alice was drawn into a bohemian circle of charismatic figures whose views on design, politics, film, and food would ultimately inform the unique culture on which Chez Panisse was founded.

    Dotted with stories, recipes, photographs, and letters, Coming to My Senses is at once deeply personal and modestly understated, a quietly revealing look at one woman’s evolution from a rebellious yet impressionable follower to a respected activist who effects social and political change on a global level through the common bond of food.

    Eat with the seasons, preserve the bounty, with ethical - and delicious - recipes from the Cornersmith café and picklery


    When Alex Elliott-Howery and James Grant opened the doors to Cornersmith, their neighbourhood cafe on an unassuming street corner in Sydney's inner west, they wanted the food to represent the sustainable ethos they held to when cooking at home: making everything from scratch using local, in-season produce; avoiding processed foods; and pickling and preserving to reduce waste. But most importantly, they wanted to serve great-tasting, good-for-you food that everyone would love.

    From day one the locals flocked in, and Cornersmith has since grown to incorporate a picklery, cooking school and a produce-trading system where customers can swap home-grown produce for a coffee or a jar of pickles.

    This book brings together favourite dishes from the award-winning cafe, covering everything from breakfasts, lunches and dinners to desserts, as well as recipes for their most popular pickles, jams, compotes, chutneys, relishes and fermented foods. Cornersmith food is about following the seasons, not the latest fad; it's about opening your eyes to the bounty available in your own neighbourhood and showing you how best to use it.
