This month’s Seattle Food Blogger event was a Q.A session with one of the culinary world’s most influential writers, Ruth Reichl.
The event took place at Olivar on Capitol hill in Seattle. Chef Philippe prepared some wonderful appetizers and Vin Du Lac Winery served three fabulous wines.

Ruth started off by clearly reminding us that her new book “ Not Becoming My Mother” is not about food. She went about saying this, somewhat apologetically as if food is all you would expect of her. Within a few seconds the group was mesmerized, each blogger intently leaning forward to hear more about Ruth’s life journey.

The pictures at this event were taken by Lara Ferroni of Cook and Eat and Rina Jordan of Rina Jordan Photography. These two photographers did a wonderful job at capturing the intense moments that filled the room.

Thank you Lara and Rina for all the photos.
