"Let's never get so cool that we write off the familiar," says author and chef David Tanis. And he means it: The third dinner in the Restaurant Eugene author series brings new depth to home-style American cooking. Tanis, co-chef at Alice Waters' Chez Panisse, discusses Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Journeys, while chef Linton Hopkins and guest chef David Sweeney -- of the recently shuttered Dynamic Dish -- incorporate Southern ingredients into a farm-to-table, four-course dinner inspired by the book.
