MemorEATS: Joanne Weir

“My mother insisted on making me tomato sandwiches when all the other kids had peanut butter and jelly or tuna fish. My mother went into the garden, picked a ripe, red tomato warm from the sun, toasted homemade bread, spread it with homemade mayonnaise, and put a few slices of tomato on top. She sprinkled the tomato with salt, and as she did she said to me, “Tomatoes need salt, it brings out the acidity and sweetness.” –JBF Award Winner Joanne Weir, culinary tour guide, instructor, author, and host of Joanne Weir's Cooking Class

What's in a Name: Per Se

“Per Se, quite frankly, was named because we were looking at the ampersand symbol and found that in the word ‘ampersand’ is the word ‘per se.’ We researched the definition of “per se” and found it meant something unique—something ‘in and of itself.’ It really personified what the restaurant was going to be. Despite the fact that its philosophical and culinary roots are based on the French Laundry, Per Se has its own personality; it is its own restaurant.” –JBF Award Winner Thomas Keller
