JeremiahTowerwas a founding chef in the 1970s at Alice Waters’ “Chez Panisse” restaurant in Berkeley, California. He is widely credited as one of the creators of both New American Cuisine and California Cuisine. Both feature local ingredients usually served in season. Initially these cuisines used American ingredients with French techniques. Later, Asian and Italian influences were also incorporated.
In 1984, Tower opened his own restaurant, “Stars”, in San Francisco. It was an overnight sensation. Numerous American chefs worked at Stars, among them Mark Franz, Mario Batali, Tim Grable, Emily Luchetti, and Jerry Traunfeld. The restaurant was among the top-grossing restaurants in the United States for close to a decade.
Tower's first book, New American Classics, won a James Beard Award in 1986 for "Best American Regional Cookbook." In 1996, Tower won the Beard Award for best chef in America. He is also the author of Jeremiah Tower Cooks : 250 Recipes from an American Master (published 2002), America's Best Chefs Cook with Jeremiah Tower (published 2003) and the companion to his PBS series and CaliforniaDish : What I Saw (and Cooked) at the American Culinary Revolution (published 2004).
