Summary
When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America's oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, with no inclination to be anyone's boss. Yet Reichl had read Gourmet since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no? Complete with recipes, this is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world worried about losing her soul, and coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark. It's the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, and a time when the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat
