Ruth Reichl, world-renowned food critic and editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine, knows a thing or two about food. Unlike lesser-known New York City food critics, Reichl really needs to “go undercover” when she tries out restaurants, and in this book she reveals some of the comic absurdities of the epicurean world that she uncovered while in various eccentric disguises.
Writing consultant Sue Hartt will facilitate discussion.
Garlic and Sapphires pulls back the curtain on Reichl’s six-year tenure at The Times, and it’s never less than fascinating. --New York Times Book Review
This wonderful book is laugh-out-loud funny--and smart and wise. --The Washington Post
