Ruth Reichl on California

2008_10_reichl.jpg"The west coast is really lucky. They have a year-round growing season. The farmers' markets there in the middle of winter are abundant ... When I went to California, the Chinese food, the Japanese food, and the Mexican food were all so much more important so much earlier...Where I was living in LA, there were people who were growing Thai eggplants right down the street from me. In New York if you wanted those, you had to get them frozen." Also interesting is her statement on food in America: "I would say food in America has changed more in the last ten years than it changed in all of its previous history." All. Previous. History.
