Chef, author, and food activist Alice Waters comes to BAM for the launch of her new memoir. In Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook, Waters chronicles the circuitous road leading up to the opening of Chez Panisse Restaurant in 1971—a time when the prevailing food culture was embracing convenience and uniformity—offering her own account of how she turned her passion project into an iconic institution that redefined American cuisine for generations of chefs and food lovers. Waters discusses her new memoir in conversation with Hilton Als, New Yorker critic and author of White Girls. Waters signs and takes questions after the program.
