Here you will find Alice's philosophy on everything from stocking your kitchen, to mastering the fundamentals of basic cooking techniques, to preparing delicious, seasonally inspired meals all year long. Always true to her belief that a perfect meal is one that is balanced in texture, color and flavor, Waters helps us embrace seasonal produce and make the best choices when selecting ingredients. Embark on a voyage of culinary rediscovery with her as she takes you by the hand and teaches you how to get the most out of your home cooking.
