Looks like erstwhile Gourmet editor Ruth Reichl has landed a new gig. The New York Times reports that not only has Reichl abandoned her old publisher, Penguin, to write in the greener grasses at Random House (she’s working on a memoir of her time at Gourmet, among other things), she’ll also be on the publishing company’s payroll as an editor-at-large, acquiring and editing titles. We do hope that her new editorial role leaves her plenty of time for languorous days of cooking and eating easily tweetable, deliciously poetic food. [Media Decoder/NYT]
