The Good Earth / Great Chefs series is enormously pleased to have Ruth Reichl coming onSunday, May 18 from 11 AM-1 PM at The Chino Farm. This should be a lively spring event, with music provided by Prairie Sky, and small bites offered using seasonal produce from the farm. We will also be continuing with our pop-up pantry, which features such items as high quality olive oil, letter press note cards, kitchen towels, fresh baguettes from Darshan bakery in Encinitas, and much more.
Ruth Reichl is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Tender at the Bone andComfort Me With Apples. She was also the Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet magazine for ten years, and the restaurant critic for both TheLos Angeles Times and The New York Times. In this, her first novel, Reichl takes the reader to the vivid realm of downtown New York restauranteurs and artisinal purveyors, all through the eyes of Billie Breslin, a young woman with an incredible palate who starts a new job at a food magazine. It’s a beautiful coming of age story that also offers the reader a tasty peek behind the scenes of the New York food scene.
We will be selling her book at the event, but if you’d like to pre-order, please click on the PayPal link below, and we’ll have it waiting for you at the event (or at the farm stand during regular hours if you can’t make the event).
