Beard on Books 
Celebrated cookbook author and chef Joyce Goldstein’s new work, Inside the California Food Revolution: Thirty Years That Changed Our Culinary Consciousness, traces the development of California cuisine from its formative years in the 1970s to 2000, when farm-to-table, foraging, and fusion became part of the national vocabulary. Featuring interviews with almost 200 chefs, purveyors, artisans, winemakers, and food writers, Goldstein explains how the counterculture movement in the West gave rise to a restaurant culture characterized by open kitchens, women in leadership positions, and a surprising number of chefs and artisanal food producers who lacked formal training.
