Food Writer/Editor, Restaurant Critic, and TV Producer Ruth Reichl - A Life-Long Love of Food
Ruth Reichl has been a game-changer in the world of food since the 1970's, when she was part of a cooks' collective in Berkeley, CA. From there she created an almost legendary career as Food Editor of The LA Times, as Restaurant Critic of The NY Times, and as Editor in Chief of Gourmet Magazine. Ruth is a beloved author, memoirist, winner of several James Beard Awards, and everything about her approach to food has been unique and inspiring. She is a thought-leader and food advocate, but ultimately she is a storyteller who cares as deeply about the people who grow our food as the people who cook it. Ruth joins author and chef Rozanne Gold, in the first remote recording for "One Woman Kitchen", to share her inspiring and endearing story. Ruth shares how she first honed her skills as a chef at only 7 years old, about how writing a cookbook at age 21 was her way through the kitchen door, how fearlessness and happiness served as her most important strength, and how nothing mattered more to her than cooking dinner for her husband and son.
