Today's guest is Ruth Reichl, the bestselling author of MY KITCHEN YEAR, DELICIOUS, and her latest memoir SAVE ME THE PLUMS which chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of Gourmet. Complete with recipes, SAVE ME THE PLUMS is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be. Now let's join Random House's Taylor Noel in conversation with author Ruth Reichl.
SAVE ME THE PLUMS: “Poignant and hilarious . . . simply delicious . . . Each serving of magazine folklore is worth savoring. In fact, Reichl’s story is juicier than a Peter Luger porterhouse. Dig in.”—The New York Times Book Review
“In this smart, touching, and dishy memoir . . . Ruth Reichl recalls her years at the helm of Gourmet magazine with clear eyes, a sense of humor, and some very appealing recipes.”—Town & Country
“If you haven’t picked up food writing queen Ruth Reichl’s new book, Save Me the Plums, I highly recommend you fix that problem. . . . Reichl is in top form and ready to dish, with every chapter seeming like a dedicated behind-the-scenes documentary on its own.”—Soleil Ho, San Francisco Chronicle
