One of the best things about working in journalism is gaining access to the people you admire, whether they be artists, writers or just plain fascinating.
I recently was asked by East Coast Living to write an article about charcuterie, so I thought, “Why not talk to the man who has helped make charcuterie so popular lately?”
And so, I had the chance to interview Michael Ruhlman, author of “Charcuterie” as well as various other wonderful books, and the co-author of Thomas Keller’s cookbooks. Ruhlman’s book on the subject was so popular that he created “Charcutepalooza”, an online event where bloggers around the world discussed their own charcuterie escapades.
The upcoming issue of ECL hits newsstands this spring.
