An Evening with RUTH REICHL

Event date: 
Thursday, October 8, 2015 - 8:00pm
Featured Book: 
My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life

The award-winning chef, food writer, and PBS host lights up Healdsburg! Ruth Reichl wrote her first cookbook at 21 and was restaurant critic at both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. She then served as editor in chief for Gourmet magazine for ten years. When that magazine suddenly folded, she sought solace by heading to her country home with her husband and spending a year rediscovering the kitchen comforts. My Kitchen Year follows the change of seasons and Reichl’s emotions as she slowly heals through the simple pleasures of cooking. From such basics as a steak sandwich (must use skirt steak), braised pork shoulder (cider), spicy Tuscan kale (anchovies, breadcrumbs) to crisp lemony yukon potatoes, cherry crostata (sour cherries!) and peach cobbler (buttermilk crust) Reichl fans will revel in Reichl’s culinary—and life—lessons relearned in the kitchen.

TICKETS: Pre-purchase the cookbook, My Kitchen Year at any Copperfield’s Books or here and you’ll have the option to purchase up to two $10 tickets to the event. The cookbook is $35 plus tax.

General Admission seating: Doors open at 7pm. Book pick-up at event (or if desired, at Copperfield’s prior to day of event). Book signing follows author talk.
