@ Busboys and Poets Takoma: Ruth Reichl - My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life
From Tender at the Bone through Comfort Me With Apples and Garlic and Sapphires, Reich has chronicled her life with food. In this new memoir the former Gourmet editor-in-chief focuses on one difficult year—2009, when Gourmet folded. Out of a job, Reichl was back in her own kitchen, rediscovering and savoring the joys of cooking for herself and her family. A tribute to the healing powers of food, Reichl’s account includes not only recipes, but her dialogue with Twitter followers.
