Bon Appetit Cooks for Alice Waters....What an evening!

When we heard that Alice Waters (from "Chez Panisse") is coming to USF to get honored by the "California Prize" ..we at, at Bon Appetit, began working and getting organized very early. We met and met and talked and imagined all the challenges..from cooking and frying prepping in a small area. Dinner for 235 pp. Follow me and you will see that, nothing is impossible for the Bon Appetit Team. Seven days to go
We began to try the recipes

Then the tent arrives...
We began talking logistics in the back of the house, another small tent next to the big tent..

While the tent was getting set up

we were already baking
and cooking and getting ready...Then the night arrives
Our tables looked majestuous

Our appetizers looked like paintings

the wines were the best ones from France

We even invented the "romantic frying" under the dark nights of San Francisco

The waiting staff was getting the last training
In the back of the house our team was working fast and efficiently.

At the end, the reward was grand

Thanks for your visit Alice, see you soon in your kitchen!
