Ruth Reichl Author Luncheon at Shade Hotel - Friday, April 12th at 12:00 pm
{pages} a bookstore proudly presents a luncheon with chef and food critic Ruth Reichl as she discusses her new book, "Save Me The Plums: My Gourmet Memoir".

Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl 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 of Gourmet, during which she spearheaded a revolution in the way we think about food.

When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at Americas 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 eight; 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.

Advance praise for "Save Me the Plums":

"Save Me the Plums sweeps the reader up in the intoxicating splendor of Gourmet in its glory days, when the smart set was in it for the food, the friendship, and the big new ideas. This is the rare case of an amazing writer living an amazing life, with a book thats the party I never wanted to end." Ann Patchett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth.
