Thank you for joining us for an evening with Ruth Reichl that no one wanted to end. Please savour these links to stories mentioned by Ruth, who fell in love with our city and all of you.
Ruth’s current top 3 restaurants in NYC
- Crown Shy
- The Standard Grill
A sad personal aside: I was part of the launch team at ESPN the Magazine, and spent a decade working on special issues for the magazine. Yesterday, ESPN shuttered their award-winning magazine. Let’s raise a glass to my unusually talented and highly eccentric former teammates.
Substantial Bites from Ruth’s Gourmet
David Rakoff, Some Pig: I couldn’t find a link to the article, but here’s a wonderful ode to one of Canada’s best satirists (buy his essay collections!)
Lost Recipes from Save Me the Plums
- Spicy Chicken with Peanuts
- Mrs. Bergamini’s Fresh Tomato Sauce
- Celebration Shrimp Pasta
- Bonus: a chapter about one of my favourite writers, Calvin Trillin, which didn’t make it into Save Me the Plums. (Note, Trillin’s book Killings is a must-read.)
Finally, one bittersweet parting gift: the lost Christmas recipes from the Dec. 2009 issue of Gourmet, which had been researched, photographed and written but was never published.
Yours in fun and friendship,
CEO & Creative Ringleader
