Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the risk (and the jog) of a lifetime when she entered the glamorous, high-stakes world of magazine publishing. Now, for the first time, she chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of Gourmet, during which she spearheaded a revolution in the way we think about food.
Tonight San Francisco Chronicle’s new restaurant critic, Soleil Ho joins Ruth to discuss her life, career and most resent endeavor SAVE ME THE PLUMS: MY GOURMET MEMOIR , a personal journey, complete with recipes, 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.
