Before I moved away from home, I was the dessert maker of the family with no interest whatsoever in learning how to make the rest of the wonderful meals my Mom prepared. I learned to cook through mouth-watering pages of magazines such as Gourmet. Elaine Bucknum revealed Ruth Reichl as a favorite author… who happens also to be a chef, restaurateur, food writer, restaurant critic, editor-in-chief of Gourmet, producer of a few PBS series, novelist and author of critically acclaimed, best-selling memoirs.

For Elaine Bucknum’s presentation April 4, Janet Samber prepared a Ruth Reichl recipe, The Cake that Cures Everything, which has been lauded by everyone lucky enough to have tasted it.

Fortunately, it’s published online here!
