September 12 @ 6:00 pmFree
Around the Slow Table, Ruth Reichl, “My Kitchen Year”
Do you like to try new recipes and share the results with a small group of friends? Do you enjoy discussing a dish’s ingredients and process of creating it? If your answer is YES, then join us for dinner based on recipes each guest prepares from My Kitchen Year, by Ruth Reichl.
The location is Shelley and Sam Witten’s home in Cloverdale; their address will be sent upon registration.
For this dinner, Shelley has selected recipes from My Kitchen Year to create a menu. When you register, she will send you the list of recipes. Select which one you’d like to make and let Shelley know. Make enough for 12 people to have a small amount (a recipe that serves about 6 people should be sufficient).
At dinner you’ll get to know each other and discuss your experiences preparing your dish. You may also nominate your own favorite cookbook for another Slow Table meal.
Limited to 12 people (including hosts)
Please also bring a beverage to share.
Please RSVP by September 6 to slowfoodsonomacountynorth@
Ruth Reichl, My Kitchen Year
My Kitchen Year follows the change of seasons as Ruth Reichl heals through the simple pleasures of cooking after the abrupt closing of Gourmet magazine. Each dish Reichl prepares for herself–and for her family and friends–represents a life’s passion for food: a blistering ma po tofu that shakes Reichl out of the blues; a decadent grilled cheese sandwich that accompanies a rare sighting in the woods around her home; a rhubarb sundae that signals the arrival of spring. Part cookbook, part personal narrative, part paean to the household gods, My Kitchen Year reveals Reichl’s most treasured recipes, to be shared over and over again with those we love. (Amazon)
