This New Cookbook Lets You Bring Home Chez Panisse
James Ransom

It’s not every day that we get this excited about a cookbook. But Kitchen Gypsy--the latest from local chef, author, TV host and culinary instructor Joanne Weir--is so much more.

Alongside the book’s recipes are Weir’s colorful stories, which say a lot about the chef’s lifelong romance with food--from growing up on her family’s farm in the Berkshires to her Chez Panisse years to the opening of her wildly successful Sausalito restaurant, Copita. There’s even a special intro written by Alice Waters (plus a book signing at Chez Panisse on November 19). 

To whet your appetite, check out the recipe for the Chez Panisse-inspired café almond cake, straight from Kitchen Gypsy’s pages. It’s time to get cooking.
