All about her latest book, My Kitchen Year, and what happens when we cook Ruth breakfast for dinner.


This week we're shaking things up on the podcast: We invited writer and former editor in chief of the iconic Gourmet Magazine Ruth Reichl to our office for a dinner party in honor of her new book, My Kitchen Year—and we documented the whole thing. Then we invited her into the studio to talk about her time post-Gourmet, where she thinks she learned to write a lede, and how Twitter helped her tell her stories. Listen to all of it in our latest episode.

More: See the full menu we cooked her—plus our favorite moments from the dinner—here and here
