New York: Harper Collins, 1992.
Illustrated by Ann Arnold. Quarto, 133 pages. FIRST EDITION. A simple and lovely book for young people told from the point of view of Alice Waters' daughter Fanny. Fanny observes the bustle of the Chez Panisse kitchen, but also the many farmers and others who supply the restaurant, and she considers the wider connectedness of her little microcosm to the bigger food world and to nature. A fine copy in a fine unclipped dust jacket. Inscribed by the illustrator Ann Arnold on the half-title, " For Maggie and Flossie, with much love from the illustrator, Ann Arnold, October 2nd, 1992... please see Aldo on page 51 smelling violets on the table. A." Aldo was Aldo Jackson, son of Arnold and her husband, the antiquarian bookseller Ian Jackson.
