    Oh no Ruth! I thought you must have already annouced the winners and made other plans for the evening. Would you like to pick a new random winner or can I “re-gift” to a foodie friend? Any day but the 23rd would be wonderful!

    I stayed up late last night to finish your new book, “Save Me the Plums,” as I loved reading it so much. While I enjoyed reading Gourmet Magazine, I did not realize that so many of the articles to be found in other magazines were “birthed” at Gourmet, under your tenure.
    Thank you for taking a chance on the article on the lobster festival and for giving your art directors the freedom to take the magazine in new and innovative directions. Although may of the innovations are now mainstream and taken for granted, at the time, they were gutsy and fresh.
    My favorite chapters were the one about your son’s evolution as a lover of food and emergence as an imaginative writer and the chapter about your bargain trip to Paris. I have lived both in the world of luxury and as a “regular person.” Your Paris trip celebrated how someone could have a truly marvelous trip to Paris without spending a fortune.
