Michael Ruhlman

Johanna Lawshea

Michael Ruhlman has written more than 20 books about food and cooking, and their fundamental importance to our families, our communities, and our world. He has also authored non-food non-fiction on topics ranging from his experience renovating an old house to a dramatic narrative of the life inside an elite pediatric surgical unit. The three novellas contained in Ruhlman’s In Short Measures (Skyhorse Publishing) delve deeply into the nuanced complexity of romantic and sexual love—and the inevitable evolution of the heart over the span of years and decades. He is also a contributor to Knitting Pearls: Writers Writing About Knitting (W. W. Norton & Company), in which two dozen writers reflect on the transformative and healing powers of knitting.
