Memories of Pizza at Chez Panisse with Fanny Singer and Alice Waters
Fanny Singer shares memories from her unconventional childhood, growing up in the revered Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California alongside her mother, legendary chef Alice Waters. She describes how the restaurant’s staff became an extended family (often referred to as “La Famille Panisse”), talks about the sophisticated palate she developed from a young age (think: salmon roe), and discusses how her work today marries her past and present (collaborations between her company, Permanent Collection, and Chez Panisse). In the show’s second half, Alice Waters joins the conversation to reminisce about time spent cooking for and with her daughter, reading Fanny’s memoir, and cultivating a sense of family at her restaurant.
