This event is a bit farther afield than our usual coverage, but when it’s Ruth Reichl, well, we know people will drive a fair distance for our grand dame of (the former) Gourmet. On Monday August 31st, she will be appearing in conversation with Michael Krasny at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, brought to you by the Peninsula Open Space Trust as part of their 2015 Wallace Stegner lecture series. 8pm. Tickets and more info here.
You can bet she is going to talk about her upcoming cookbook, My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Changed My Life, coming out at the end of September. If you don’t make it for the POST talk, you can see her in October on her book tour. She’ll be at Bar Agricole (hosted by Omnivore Books) on Tuesday October 6th and hosted by the Commonwealth Club in Silicon Valley on Wednesday October 7th—mark you calendar.
