November-December's Book: Comfort Me with Apples, by Ruth Reichl
Monday, December 05, 2011
Ruth Reichl joins us the Leonard Lopate Show Book Club! She’ll talk about her memoir Comfort Me with Apples. It picks up in 1978, when Reichl sets out on her career as a restaurant critic, which takes her to New York and China, France and Los Angeles. She shares stories of cooking and dining with world-famous chefs, includes some of her favorite recipes, and also writes of the dissolution of her first marriage, the start of a second, and motherhood at the age of 40. It’s about love of food and family, and is the perfect read for the holiday season.
