Fewer, Better Recipe: Summer Vegetables

#cuyana #fewerbetter #cuyana #fewerbetter

For those of us enjoying a much-needed stay-cation over the Labor Day holiday, a visit to the local farmer’s market, bringing home a basketful of fresh vegetables, and cooking a simple but satisfying summer meal can be a delightful weekend activity. We love all of the recipes from renowned chef and food activist Alice Waters’ cookbook, The Art of Simple Food, not to mention her philosophy of buying local, high-quality ingredients, and cooking them simply: a true pioneer of fewer, better food. Alternatively, if you’re not in the mood for cooking, book a reservation at Ms. Waters’ Michelin-star rated restaurant, Chez Panisse, in Berkeley: a pride and joy of Northern California cuisine, where the menu is dictated daily by what’s fresh and in season locally.
