New Gig For Ruth Reichl

It’s been almost exactly one year since Gourmet magazine shut its doors, and left editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl unemployed. So her many fans should be pleased to hear that Reichl has taken a position with Random House as an editor-at-large, and has more books on the horizon. From the LA Times blog Daily Dish:

Apparently, Reichl, already a bestselling author, has contracted for three books, two of which will be nonfiction, including “The Tao of Ruth,” which she says was suggested in an Anthony Bourdain story (wonder what Twitter phenomenon “Ruth Bourdain” will have to say about that?). The other will be the latest installment in her memoirs, covering the years at Gourmet. Food gossip fans are already salivating. In addition, there are plans for her first novel, “Delicious.”

Prior to Gourmet, Reichl was a food critic for the NY Times, and a food editor and critic at the LA Times.
