Before he became a New York Times columnist and the author of several cookbooks, David Tanis spent years cooking for Alice Waters at the famed Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. On today's episode, he discusses how that early stage of his career defined his cooking style, which led to the new David Tanis Market Cooking. He takes a break from a busy promotional schedule, which includes some notable cooking collaborations around the country (details on his site), to join us today.
