Ruth Reichl will be in the Vancouver Club (house) with Jim Byrnes

  • Vancouver Club 915 West Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V6C Canada (map)

Tonight we have the pleasure of presenting one of America's culinary legends.  Ruth Reichl is well known for her journalistic career; restaurant critic for Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Editor of Gourmet Magazine until its demise.    The year following this tragic loss for food lovers and travelers, found Ruth blue and introspective.   Ruth has penned a delightful book: My Kitchen Year.  Ruth writes beautifully.  Her chapters take us through the seasons, her thoughts and observations as she heals, and shares the 136 recipes that she believes saved her life.

Here in Vancouver we can boast that Jim Byrnes lives here.  Jim is American born, the same vintage as Ruth, and a master of dealing with the blues.    Tonight Jim will interview Ruth about the book, the blues and their mutual capacity to embrace cooking and life.

This evening will begin with the interview, followed by a reception with tasty nibbles from Ruth's new book, wine, and book signing.  COST:  $75.00 (includes book)

There will be a dinner after the signing for 28 guests. Ruth and Jim will be at the table.  COST: $175.00 and includes the interview portion, the book, dinner and wine pairings. THE DINNER PORTION OF THE EVENT IS SOLD OUT.  Thank you.
