The Food Seen - Episode 151 - Patricia Curtan, Menus for Chez Panisse
On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Patricia Curtan is a printmaker, long associated with Alice Waters. If you’ve ever been to Chez Panisse in Berkley, CA, it’s Patrica’s letterpress, woodcut and linoleum block reliefs, which have graced the restaurant’s menus for over 40 years. Inspired by 16th century European herbals and Japanese ukiyo-e prints, Patricia’s art can also be seen in the book Menus for Chez Panisse- illustrating her influences, drawn from nature, documenting the tactile, temporal experience that makes a meal. Thanks to our sponsor, Hearst Ranch, and thanks to Cookies for today's music.
