Alice Walters, of the famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley California, had her “epiphany” moment in Brittany some 50 years ago when she ate a meal in a simple restaurant and wondered why everything tasted so delicious. Everything came from the local market that morning. Back home she couldn’t create that taste until she searched out vegetables, fruits, fish and meat direct from the producer. Based on local, fresh and mostly organic, she set up one of the most successful restaurants in San Francisco.
In Ledbury, you don’t have to go out to find local producers!
