David Lance Goines illustrated cookbooks for Alice Waters

Legendary restaurateur and chef Alice Waters and renowned graphic artist David Lance Goines met during the Berkeley Free Speech Movement in the ‘60s, and the two have remained close friends. Goines has created commemorative posters for Waters’ Chez Panisse restaurant and illustrated many of her cookbooks. Some of his Chez Panisse posters are in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

On September 8, The Center for the Arts presents “In Conversation with Alice Waters” at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Grass Valley. “We did a cooking column together in the late ‘60s for the San Francisco Express Times (an alternative newspaper),” Goines told us in an interview. “She wrote the recipes and I illustrated them.”

Goines is familiar with our region: He knew Nevada City print craftsman Harold Berliner, whose daughter Judith runs Full Circle Press.
