(Ruhlman, Michael) Michael Ruhlman is the author or co-author of more than 25 books—nonfiction, fiction, and memoir—the majority on food and cooking, including the bestselling The Soul of a Chef, The French Laundry Cookbook with Thomas Keller, Charcuterie with Brian Polcyn, Ruhlman’s Twenty, which won both James Beard and IACP awards, and most recently, Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America (Abrams). In a culture obsessed with food—how it looks, what it tastes like, where it comes from, what is good for us—there are often more questions than answers. Ruhlman proposes that the best practices for consuming wisely could be hiding in plain sight—in the aisles of your local supermarket. A mix of reportage and rant, personal history and social commentary, Grocery is a landmark book from one of our most insightful food writers.
