I just finished listening to the audio version of Garlic and Sapphires, a memoir of her time as the New York Times restaurant critic. This book was very well written but also funny and touching at the same time. I fell in love with Ruth's young son Nick, who completely embraced his mother's lifestyle of eating out in disguise.
Now, I'm listening to Comfort Me with Apples. This is Reichl's second memoir and describes how she landed her first job as a restaurant critic for a magazine in Berkeley, California. This author is a wonderful storyteller and there are great recipes throughout her memoirs. I can't wait to try her cheesecake recipe from Garlic & Sapphires (with lemon zest....yummy!).
I wonder if Ruth would be willing to visit Ipswich?!
