David Tanis leaving Chez Panisse?
There's big news from up north, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Paolo Lucchesi. David Tanis, one of two co-chefs at Berkeley's landmark Chez Panisse restaurant, with a few brief interruptions since the 1980s, is leaving. Tanis has shared the kitchen pass with Jean-Pierre Moulle -- Tanis taking the summer shift and Moulle working the winter. The remainder of the year Tanis lives in Paris. He's written two well-received books, most recently "Heart of the Artichoke," which came out last fall. Tanis couldn't be reached for immediate comment.
