A longtime food critic for The New York Times and former editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine, Ruth Reichl has just released her debut novel. But Reichl is navigating familiar territory. In "Delicious," a food writer discovers a stash of World War II-era letters between a 12-year-old girl and the legendary chef James Beard. Reichl joins us to discuss her post-Gourmet career and her foray into fiction.

Host: Michael Krasny
