WVIZ ideastream presents Author, Blogger, Home Cook and Entrepreneur Michael Ruhlman
Session Time: 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Our next Town Hall guest is Michael Ruhlman the author of more than twenty non-fiction and cooking related works, including the bestselling "The Soul of a Chef," "The French Laundry Cookbook" with Thomas Keller, Charcuterie and Ruhlman's Twenty, which won both James Beard and IACP awards.
“The best things in life happen when you get carried away,” says writer Ruhlman who went into a cooking school to write about what it means to be a chef, and instead he became a cook, got a job line cooking, lucked into one of the great restaurants of the world to work with the chef on his book, and he kept on writing about food. “I got carried away, and it’s made all the difference.”
Ruhlman was born in 1963 in Cleveland, graduated from Duke in 1985 with a BA in Literature, worked at The New York Times as a copyboy where he managed to slip some stories into most sections of the paper, departed after fewer than two years to pursue a life of writing, travel and odd jobs. Returning to Cleveland in 1991, he found work at a local magazine covering the arts and cultural scene, and here began writing about chefs and cooking.
Join us on February 24 to listen to the how Ruhlman “got carried away” and became an award winning author entrepreneur and cook.
