Ruth Reichl was kind enough to carve out some time to chat with me while on a recent trip to Palo Alto for a speaking engagement. I asked her about how life has changed since the closing of Gourmet magazine, how she feels about food bloggers, and what she really thinks about Ruth Bourdain.
Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief of Gourmet Magazine and former New York Times restaurant critic, joined Forum Tue, Sept. 29, 2009 to discuss her latest cookbook, “Gourmet Today: More than 1,000 All-New Recipes for the Contemporary Kitchen.” Reichl has been honored with four James Beard Awards. Her other books include “Not Becoming My Mother: And Other Things She Taught Me Along the Way.”
Ruth Reichl is best known for her work as editor in chief of Gourmet Magazine, but she’s also a best selling author who tackles subjects outside the world of food. Her new book, “Not Becoming My Mother: And Other Things She Taught Me Along the Way” examines her mother’s life as a woman in the early 20th century.
