Wednesday's Tuscan Dinner at Chez Panisse One of 33 Celebrating Slow Food Book

Welcome Books
Alice is all over it, big time.
​Zagat Guides and Slow Food have organized 33 nationwide dinners -- collectively called A Slow Taste of Tuscany -- happening Wednesday to celebrate the publication of Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town (Welcome Books, $50) by Douglas Gayeton. The Petaluma author plans to be present at the book signing and Slow dinner at Chez Panisse CafĂ© (1517 Shattuck at Walnut), the only one in the Bay Area. Look for a menu inspired by the book.

Participation by the restaurant Alice built makes sense, since Waters helped start Slow Food USA. She also wrote the intro for the photo-rich book, which is a celebration of Tuscan food traditions, Slow Food-style. In blurbage, Waters has given the book high praise: "Many have tried to explain Slow Food in written words, but few have managed to communicate the essence of this movement as successfully."

If you're a fan, there's no other place you'll want to be Wednesday. Seek reservations here.
