Ruth Reichl isn’t the only one set to get involved with Gilt Groupe/Gilt City: A source tells us that senior writer Francis Lam will jump from Salon to become the features editor of Gilt Taste, an “online market offering exceptional artisan foods with stories and recipes from the experts.” We hear Reichl’s involvement is still being negotiated, but it looks likely she’ll sign on as a part-time managing editor of the site, which is slated to launch later this spring.
