Ruth Reichl Channels Oprah
I just found this article in Publishers Weekly here at work: Gourmet Starts Cookbook Club
It seems like a cool idea– Gourmet Magazine starting an Oprah-esque book club, intending to help readers weed through the thousands of cookbooks out there (much like a very useful website we all know and love!) Oprah helped get a lot of people to read who wouldn't necessarily pick up a book in their free time. Gourmet readers probably already do a lot of cooking and cookbook reading, but a recommendation from such a source would be nice to have when there are over 24,000 new cookbooks each year.
