The Clean Plate Club, Episode #4: Ruth Bourdain (Josh Friedland)

We’re shaking things up this week with an exclusive one-on-one interview with the infamous/notorious/outrageous Ruth Bourdain, the brainchild of The Food Section’s Josh Friedland. In this exclusive one hour, in-depth interview, Josh opens up about Ruth Bourdain’s genesis, from avatar to book deal to James Beard Award to the front page of the New York Times. It’s a pretty terrific story and I thank Josh for taking the time to share it with us. If you want to listen in iTunes (like, in your car or at the gym), you can find it here. (While you’re there, take a moment to review the show, wouldya?)

Oh and if you’re curious about the farro salad that I make for Craig at the start…

…it actually turned out pretty delicious:

Those are farmer’s market peaches in there with scallions, toasted almonds, and crumbled blue cheese. (Oh and the farro’s tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.)

The dinner’s a little more Ruth than it is Bourdain, but you can’t please everyone. Happy listening!
