In 1995, he joined The New Yorker as Fiction Editor and staff writer, and, for the last 21 years, has been writing about food, food culture, and French and Italian culinary history for the magazine. This evening is being generously hosted by Danielle Truscott and Michael Eck in their home in Connecticut.
