Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir

We rated this book:


Once again Ruth Reichl has served up something special with Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir and it is every bit as addicting and satisfying as anything she’s ever written and more. From her early beginnings of laying on a dusty used-bookstore floor relishing old copies of Gourmet magazine to the eventual vivid distaste for the magazine’s evolution and her brief humorous dismissal of the highest coveted position at the magazine, leading up to how she changed the course of the publication with her vision and passion we are invited both to the table and behind-the-scenes.

Reichl offers her story with the craft of a gifted fiction writer, she moves her story quickly and precisely, drawing her readers into her world in every sense, which is just one aspect that makes this book so delightful, another is the many recipes included within the pages. We follow her along as she treks through uncharted regions of learning new things, things she did not believe she could do, but that grew her into more of whom she is, making this a relatable bite. Her story and artistry deserve all the stars.
