TOP CHEF Judge Ruth Reichl Visits the Morrison Center Tonight
These days we are all doing a lot of writing, talking about and taking pictures of food. The question is, why? Food writer, restaurant critic and Top Chef Masters judge, Ruth Reichl will kick off the 2013/2014 season of The Cabin's Readings & Conversations series, tonight, October 16, at the Morrison Center.
Reichl will take us on a romp through history to look at food writing in different times and places in the world, in an attempt to discover what the changing language of food can tell us about ourselves.
Tickets range from $37.25-$58.50, student tickets available for $20. Tickets can be purchased online at boisestatetickets.com or through the Morrison Center box office. Funding for this program is made possible in part by the Morrison Center Endowment Foundation, Inc.
