Save Me the Plums

Save Me the Plums by Ruth Reichl covers her challenging tenure as editor of Gourmet magazine just as the print world began to shift radically. She’s brutally honest about the personalities and some bold decisions she made about what to publish, the inevitable rise of bean counting, and the opportunities she had to hobnob with the top chefs at that time. She's a good, clever writer willing to point out her own missteps. (Non-Fiction/Memoir)
