Ruth Reichl Memoir to Become a Major Motion Picture

Gourmet may be dead, but its legendary editor, Ruth Reichl, is about to come to life on the big screen. According to Los Angeles Times food blog Daily Dish, a movie based on Reichl's third memoir, Garlic and Sapphires, is currently in production.

Although the production company revealed little else, it did confirm that Garlic and Sapphires is in "active development." The movie is slated for a 2010 release.

Zealous Reichl fans are already taking bets on who'll play the curly-haired culinary protagonist, and candidates include everyone from Andie MacDowell to Minnie Driver and Tracey Ullman.


After seeing her go undercover, I vote for Reichl herself. Who would you want to see star in Garlic and Sapphires?
