9:00 pm
peter: the end of world war ii marked the beginning of mass produced everything, including food. lou: american machinery was turning out fords and turning out wonder bread. when white bread came out, it became-- everybody had to eat white bread. they were telling my father, "but each loaf of bread has to look the same." and they get angry with him. at our own italian restaurant, george sometimes would say, "well, one looks like this, the other one looks like that." erica: canned goods took over as why would you want to eat food that was fresh from the farm all dirty, when you could eat nice, clean food that has been carefully processed for your protection?" peter: even the san francisco treat came out of a box. historian erica peters. erica: everyone loves rice-a-roni. but what people don't know is that it was also a way for a new bride, a new canadian bride, to show her italian mother-in-law that she was also a decent cook.
9:01 pm
peter: the young bride, lois, had married into the dedomenico family, owners of the golden grain macaroni company. her armenian landlady taught her how to make rice pilaf. lois added a twist. erica: with swanson's chicken soup mixed in to make it delicious. and the brothers who ran the--the brothers who ran the pasta company realized that since they also had a sideline in making dried soup mixes, that they could turn this into a boxed meal and sell it as an alternative to potatoes on your plate, which they promptly did. and it was very successful. the older brother, vincent dedomenico, came up with the name rice-a-roni. peter: there was practically nothing you could put on your plate that you couldn't pour out of a box. [music] michael: you know, when somebody says to me, "your three best meals of your life?" there are always going to be three meals that completely
9:02 pm
changed my thought process, and chez panisse was my first. [music] peter: alice waters was a teenager in a tiny midwest town when she got her first restaurant job. alice: i was a car-hop at a restaurant called "the country cousin" when i was-- when i was 15. it was right at the beginning of the car-hop days. and we had roller skates. peter: from that humble start, she moved with her family to los angeles, where she worked inside bullock's tea room. alice: and my friend eleanor and i got a job making sandwiches for-- i believe her name was ms. wanda. and we had to do them just so. i mean, it was an incredible place of learning for me. we made crab sandwiches, i remember.
9:03 pm
we just had to do the toast just right. peter: that attention to detail with food was not the only lesson learned. alice: especially when you're working for tips, you're trying to please people. and i knew that if i really talked to them about the food, and got them to order more, and that they liked me, that they would leave a tip. peter: waters' next move was to cal berkeley, just in time for the free speech movement. alice: i was on the fringes of the movement at berkeley, but i listened. i listened to mario savio. mario savio: serving a notice of warning, and i should say threat, to this administration. alice: i believed that we could create an ideal world. and i just felt empowered by the sort of counterculture
9:04 pm
of the 60s. peter: at 19, she spent a year abroad, studying and absorbing the culture in france. and while she felt empowered by the berkeley protests, she was inspired by the french way with food. alice: i felt like i hadn't eaten really anything before that time. it was a complete awakening for me. i just loved the markets, i loved the baguettes, i loved the oysters on the half-shell, i loved the wine. i loved the whole way that these restaurants were run. peter: after returning home, waters went to work in politics, knocking on doors for democrat and anti-war candidate robert scheer. alice: i thought he was brilliant. and i worked for his campaign.
9:05 pm
robert scheer: we received 45% of the vote against the man who was an incumbent for 8 years. alice: and when he lost, i couldn't understand why, and i didn't want to be involved with politics ever again. it really pushed me out. and i just thought, "i'll open a restaurant and i'll persuade people in a different way." i never thought about what would happen if he won. and he takes great, great pride in the fact that he lost and that chez panisse opened up as a result. peter: while waters was opening chez panisse, narsai david was running his restaurant near berkeley. one of three sons born to assyrian parents, david picked up early lessons in good kitchen management from his mom. narsai: if my mother had had a daughter, there's a pretty good chance i would never have ended up in the food business.
9:06 pm
because with old country tradition, a girl would be in the kitchen helping mom. and by god, tom sawyer had nothing on my mother. she would get the three of us to sit around the table and we'd race to see who could pit the peaches the fastest, or who'd peel the tomatoes the fastest. she canned 100 quarts of tomatoes every year. peter: david and waters shared a philosophy of food. alice: we are what we eat. and when you're eating fast food, you are digesting those values. but if you eat beautiful, real food, and you understand where that comes from, and that you're really nourished by it, and you think differently about the world. narsai: we didn't have anything coming out of the freezer. we wanted everything fresh, we wanted to get the best that we could get. alice: i wanted, you know, a perfectly ripe apricot.
9:07 pm
i wanted to sit at a table. i wanted to go to the market every day. i wanted a fish right out of the water. and so basically, i was looking for food that was local, sustainably produced, in season, and enjoy it with family and friends. peter: a popular magazine tried to squeeze that ideal into a marketing postcard. narsai: an article comes out in bon appetit saying that chez panisse and narsai's are producing california cuisine. i thought to myself, "what are they talking about? what's california cuisine?" i discussed it with alice, she had no idea what california cuisine was about. we were both just doing what we felt like doing. peter: the food culture born of that philosophy changed the way the bay area ate out and dined in. nancy: you would not be able to buy arugula and radicchio in safeway today if it hadn't been for alice waters.
9:08 pm
everybody needs to thank alice for what is now available in grocery stores. she has driven the demand for better lettuce, better produce, better meat, better fish. lou: i think she was the innovator. she was the changer. it brought about this other culinary academy, if you will. peter: those lessons about cooking local sustainably-grown foods are reaching beyond the cooking schools. they're also being taught in grade schools, and in gardens from the pacific coast to pennsylvania avenue. alice: we're trying to open up these children's senses to the world about them and not make judgments about what they're eating. it's allowing them to find it themselves. and once they find it, they're going to go back to that. once they find the little berry on the bush, they say,
9:09 pm
"let's go and see if the berries are ripe now." it's the reason that we needed to plant a garden on the lawn. i wish they could plant a garden on the front lawn of the white house because it sends a message around the world, just the way that michelle's garden really made an impression. and people see that picture of her digging into the ground and they say, "oh, you know, we want to do that too." peter: the great chefs believe cooking a meal for someone is deeply personal. to do it well means putting something of yourself into each meal. michael: what i think that alice waters has always done, and what it was all about, but really the kind of the heart and soul of the restaurant, it wasn't just about the food. the whole experience was really, i'm sure, 100% her personality. peter: a personality that has never been afraid
9:10 pm
of a little adventure. cecilia: the first time we went to japan. we were in kyoto. alice: i had eaten sashimi before. but never with shrimp, never, and never with live shrimp. cecilia: so later, i order some shrimp. so, the chef brought us a box, a wooden box. he said, "what this for?" i said, "you just wait." they open the box, they wetted the sawdust, they wetted the saw--a few shrimps, they're moving, they're still crawling. alice: that was the part that completely surprised me. and i didn't know whether i wanted to do that or not. and she just got me to taste it, of course.
9:11 pm
cecilia: so put the shrimp in the mouth, the tail is still moving. i said, "alice, you wanted fresh. you cannot say this is not fresh." alice: i've never had live shrimp since. peter: that friendship is a hallmark of the bay area culinary community. alice: there's kind of a camaraderie among all of the chefs. it's not a competition. peter: but it is a challenge. to break through in the bay area food scene takes a certain kind of genius and a little push. for three of the bay area's most exciting chefs, that push came from a cheesy tv show, a few nagging friends, and a paperwork error.
9:12 pm
9:13 pm
9:14 pm
[mus nancy: i can see the dinner table, i can see when they put an artichoke in front of me, and i burst into tears. i just think it was so, so completely foreign, and they were all laughing hysterically, but that was--that's really my first memory of food. michael: it was always my mom baking pocket bread. and my first memory of it was i remember going in the kitchen and trying to grab one out of the oven, and she would just bake it on the racks, and i grabbed the oven rack to pull--
9:15 pm
it burnt my hand, but i still managed to grab the bread, have a piece of bread while i was crying, a little kid eating on one hand and a burnt hand, you know, in ice on the other hand. david: you know, as a 6 or 7-year-old and tasting that broth and looking at a clam and eating it for the first time. it's the first taste of exotica, and i remember liking it very much. peter: there are so many restaurants in the san francisco bay area, you could eat at a different spot every night for nearly 50 years. only the most extraordinary chefs can break through the culinary clutter. and while their menus may be wildly different, they share one simple belief: the feeling around the table is as important as the food. it is a belief they have held since childhood. david: at the end of the day, sharing a meal together, where people talk and became a family again. nancy: my mother, us, all of them, the four sisters were fabulous cooks. they were--my grandmother probably the best of them all.
9:16 pm
so, everything was always fresh and cooked from scratch, and bread was made, and all of those things, so a real tradition of--i think that really established my palate for what food is supposed to taste like. michael: the table would be filled with just great food and really flavorful little plates, and the food would kind of stay on the table. and conversation would start, then a fight would break out, and then cards would start being played. and it was--you were there for hours. and it was just something so special about it. you know, and as i kind of progressed in my career, i've always wanted to keep that spirit of what it meant to me to sit down to dinner. peter: for most, the road to restaurant success starts with a steel pad and a greasy pot. michael: i started like most chefs. you start because it's a job. i had to do dishes to get to pick parsley and wash baked potatoes, you know? david: my first job in a restaurant was as a dishwasher and a pot washer in new orleans, louisiana.
9:17 pm
nancy: i took a job at the carnelian room on the 52nd floor of the bank of america building as a hostess and a food checker. peter: today, michael mina, david kinch, and nancy oakes are among the most decorated chefs in the country. all of them have a deeply rooted love of cooking. but none of them would have made it in the bay area without fate, friends, and family. michael mina's family fled egypt when he was 3. his parents feared religious persecution at the hands of abdel nasser. michael: they left with nothing. and you couldn't--you know, you could leave, but you couldn't bring much with you. and they did that and started over. peter: he grew up in central washington. he was 13 when a family vacation to san francisco changed his life. michael: we were staying in the hotel, and i would walk down the street every day, every morning, and have an almond croissant. seeing a city like san francisco, i went home and i fell in love with this city.
9:18 pm
i absolutely said to myself, "this is where i want to live." peter: mina worked in a restaurant through high school and loved it. but in the mid-80s, there was no food network to tell a teenager you could build a career in the kitchen. but there was robin leach. announcer: it's "lifestyles of the rich and famous." michael: there was a special on "lifestyles of the rich and famous" on jeremiah tower. and there was a feature of him and it was-- they were showing stars. and this was in san francisco. and it was so impactful, and robin leach, and it was so impactful to me, i remember sitting there just watching it, saying, "my god, that's what i would love to do." that next morning, i woke up and it was my mission. i said, "i'm going to--i am going to find out how to become a chef." peter: but his first step was met with rejection. michael: here's a funny story that i don't know if i've ever even said. i didn't get accepted to the school here in san francisco, the california culinary. they said, "you need to get two more years of experience
9:19 pm
in a fine dining restaurant at the time." peter: after his formal training, he got a real life lesson in the bay area restaurant business. michael: the second day i lived here was the earthquake. and so, i lived here for one day. it was like i had been dying to move to san francisco all my life, and the second day i live here was the earthquake. and so, needless to say, getting a building permit at that time was a little--you know, charles schwab needed a building permit and we want to open a new restaurant in the financial district in downtown san francisco. back of the line. peter: mina would open aqua in 1991. it was the first of many hit restaurants which would come to be known as the michael mina group. as a young girl, nancy oakes spent many nights at her father's restaurant in carmel. nancy: the most exotic people i have ever met in my life, people that i would never have come into contact with, all different races, all different backgrounds. but you know, wild, you know, motown playing,
9:20 pm
and all of this stuff that goes on in a kitchen, that sort of primed me for being very comfortable in that situation. peter: comfortable, but unconvinced that she was destined to have her own kitchen. she was making a living as a hostess when a friend dragged her into the back of the house. nancy: it was my friend who decided that we were going to cook. we had always cooked together as friends. these people offered us, they said, "we're not using the kitchen and this bar. won't it be great? you guys are such great cooks, it'll be really fun, you can give it a try," all these-- you know, they were one of the people that are always saying, "you should have a restaurant, you should have a restaurant." it's that nightmare story. and so we did it. and i took a major cut in salary and started cooking. peter: she hasn't stopped since. oakes opened boulevard in san francisco in 1993 and has gone on to win the james beard award for the best restaurant in america.
9:21 pm
nancy: i went and did a little therapy and i expressed that i thought it was very serendipitous that i had ended up in this career. and she said, "oh no, you were destined for it." peter: david kinch, chef and owner of manresa in los gatos, put down roots in the bay area after his dreams of a culinary education in japan came to an abrupt end. david: i had to leave japan early, earlier than i thought, you know, because of complications with my visa. i was planning on spending at least a couple of years working in japan, learning as much as i could, learning the language, settling down a little bit. and then it was uprooted. and you know, within a 24-hour period, i was out of the country and back home, no place to live, not working anywhere. peter: now homeless, kinch moved in with his parents in danville. he spent the next few years charting a new path,
9:22 pm
which eventually led through the kitchens of new york, europe, and then back to the bay area. kinch opened manresa in 2002. he formed a partnership with a santa cruz farm, a reliable source for healthy, local, sustainably-grown ingredients. david: you know, the things that grow at love apple are reflective of our environment, our climates, and in our discourse about how we work together. peter: kinch, like oakes and mina, is taking alice waters' food philosophy and putting it into practice. david: but what she did is she made the commitment, you know, to work with the product that was out there, and fortunately we had it. peter: and the customer, the diner, the foodie is here to enjoy it. alice: i think there are people that are fanatic about eating. [music]
9:23 pm
my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locafor pg&e.rk fieldman most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street
9:24 pm
i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week. together, we're building a better california.
9:25 pm
[music] peter: the bay area is america's number-one dining destination. but none of it happens without the tens of thousands of men and women picking fruits and vegetables every day on california farmland.
9:26 pm
they are hardworking, they are dedicated, they are overlooked, and in many cases they are grossly underpaid. alice: i think that everyone needs to have an experience of what it's like to work in a garden, to work on a farm, and to pick those beans every day, pick the raspberries. i mean, it's incredibly hard work, and it demands all your attention. and it's absolutely vital for our good health and our pleasure, and they need to be rewarded for the work that they do. when we lift up the idea of farming and make it something that's really cherished in this country, that we lift up the farm workers with them. and that's what needs to happen.
9:27 pm
erica: my husband would get up at 4 in the morning to try to beat the computer system so that he can get into state bird provisions, and he'll do that multiple times. david: certainly where we are in northern california, you know, people tend to be educated, fairly sophisticated, they have a chance to travel and see the world a little bit, and they have reasonably high expectations of what they expect, you know, dining out. there's nothing else i can ask for more than people who offer a challenge in terms of offering them a pleasurable experience. michael: you have a city that i think is really-- it's so known for innovative food, that when you come here, you've already-- you know, you've already a lot of times mentally said, "i will try something that i might not try in cincinnati, ohio, because i'm in san francisco." nancy: if you cook delicious food,
9:28 pm
and if you price it fairly and you can hold the front of the house together and treat people nicely and provide courteous and good service, people will come. lou: and san francisco bay area is very welcoming and enjoys watching people take risks. narsai: we have restaurants from every culture you can imagine. african cultures from several different african countries, middle eastern food and greek food, and this creativity is still alive and well in the bay area. and i think it's due to continue. peter: but only if we continue to guard the resources which make it possible. nancy: we have absolutely the best access to the best ingredients. great ingredients are going to always drive us. alice: we have farmland nearby. we still are able to fish from pretty clean water. we care about the environment probably more
9:29 pm
than most places in this country. peter: those ingredients are now in the hands of avant-garde chefs whose culinary imaginations are delighting new generations of connoisseurs. nancy: the san francisco food scene is definitely exploding. michael: right now i think, you know, every week you've got a new option of, you know, a real restaurant too. david: we experiment and redo and re-taste and rework things all the time. cecilia: the chef is the star now. peter: on the next "bay area revelations." steve wozniak: and i look back, how did i get on this course of being good at a certain thing? it's accident after accident after accident. peter: the bay area's famous for welcoming the people who challenge conventional wisdom. they are the risk-takers, the innovators, the artists, and the outliers.
