Event Description


Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the risk (and the job) 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 recent 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.

Join us for some great "foodie" conversation followed by audience Q & A, book sales and signing.

"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 that\\\\\\\'s the party I never wanted to end." - Ann Patchett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth


RUTH REICHL was Editor in Chief of Gourmet Magazine from 1999 to 2009. Before that she was the restaurant critic of both The New York Times (1993-1999) and the Los Angeles Times (1984-1993), where she was also named food editor. As co-owner of The Swallow Restaurant from 1974 to 1977, she played a part in the culinary revolution that took place in Berkeley, California. In the years that followed, she served as restaurant critic for New West and California magazines

Reichl has been honored with six James Beard Awards (one for magazine feature writing and one for multimedia food journalism in 2009; two for restaurant criticism, in 1996 and 1998; one for journalism, in 1994; and Who\\\\\\\'s Who of Food and Beverage in America, 1984.
