EATER BOOK CLUB—Per Publisher's Marketplace, via Grubz, Alice Waters has signed a deal to pen three more books: a 40-year anniversary celebration of Chez Panisse called Classic Chez Panisse, a follow-up to 2007's The Art of Simple Food, and a personal narrative which we'll go ahead and dub My Life in Wonderland.

TOP CHEFFAGE—Last night, Bravo tricked Top Chef fans into watching the Andy Cohen Show by using said show to announce the winner of the Vegas season's Fan Favorite contest.
