Save me the plums!
a talk with author ruth reichl

Ruth Reichl, Trailblazing Food Writer and beloved Restaurant Critic, will be In Conversation with Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books about Ruth's New Hardcover
Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir.

Ruth Reichl is the Bestselling Author of the Memoirs Tender at the Bone, Comfort Me with Apples, Garlic and Sapphires, and For You Mom, Finally; the Novel Delicious!; and, most recently, the Cookbook My Kitchen Year. She was Editor in Chief ofGourmet Magazine for 10 Years. Previously she was the Restaurant Critic for The New York Times and served as the Food Editor and Restaurant Critic for The Los Angeles Times. She has been honored with 6 James Beard Awards for her Journalism, Magazine Feature Writing, and Criticism. She lives in upstate New York with her husband and two cats.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK: Ruth Reichl, Trailblazing Food Writer and beloved Restaurant Critic, took the job (and the risk) 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 ofGourmet Magazine, during which she spearheaded a revolution in the way we think about food.

When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest Epicurean Magazine, she declined. She was a Writer, not a Manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. And yet . . . Reichl had been reading Gourmet since she was 8 Years old; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?

This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary Chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic Writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of Editors and Art Directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately Gourmet into a cutting-edge Publication.

This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the Magazine world upside down. 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.

For our Spring WITH LOVE dinner, we celebrate the marvelous Gascony region of southwest France, home to the lovely vineyards of Armagnac - France’s rare centuries-old brandy dating back to the late-13th century.

For this dinner, we are thrilled to showcase the skills of our fantastically talented bar team of Arturo Vera-Felicie (Bar Manager) and Ryan Magnuson (Bartender). Together they will create innovative drink, paired with food by our esteemed Sous Chefs Andy McCormick and Jon Ponzer, and dessert by Pastry Chef, Elizabeth Paradise.

Domaine D’Arton, a producer of the very special spirit of Armagnac, and many other beautiful wines will be featured at this event.
