WATCH: Ruth Reichl Calls Food Magazines ‘The Most Generous Places’ on HuffPost Live

“They were so passionate, so different from my generation. They were hardworking. They were optimistic.”

She also calls food magazines “the most generous places to work” on account of how nurturing food people are. That part is true. We certainly never forced our interns into anything embarrassing. Check out her interview below.
