Chuck Williams to be Community Center Muse

He’s an American icon, a man credited with changing the American kitchen – a man who’s won every culinary award imaginable.

He’s hobnobbed with Julia Child and James Beard. He’s dined with cookbook author Marion Cunningham and knife magnate Wolfgang Wusthof. And he’s appeared on television with Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart and others.

Charles E. Williams, known as “Chuck” to the world, has built an empire from his love of cooking and made Williams-Sonoma, the company he founded, a household name.

And while it should be obvious, not everyone knows that Chuck Williams’ dream started here in this small town almost 70 years ago – a town that captured his attention and his heart.

“It seemed natural to select Chuck Williams as our 2013 Muse,” said Toni Castrone, executive director of the Sonoma Community Center. “In the past two years, we’ve completed the Rotary Kitchen and expanded our culinary programming. It was the right time.”
