Michael Ruhlman, Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America, with special guest Laura Lippman

In Grocery, bestselling author Michael Ruhlman offers incisive commentary on America’s relationship with its food and investigates the overlooked source of so much of it—the grocery store. In a culture obsessed with food—how it looks, what it tastes like, where it comes from, what is good for us—there are often more questions than answers. Ruhlman proposes that the best practices for consuming wisely could be hiding in plain sight—in the aisles of your local supermarket. Using the human story of the family-run Midwestern chain Heinen’s as an anchor to this journalistic narrative, he dives into the mysterious world of supermarkets and the ways in which we produce, consume, and distribute food. Grocery examines how rapidly supermarkets—and our food and culture—have changed since the days of your friendly neighborhood grocer. But rather than waxing nostalgic for the age of mom-and-pop shops, Ruhlman seeks to understand how our food needs have shifted since the mid-twentieth century, and how these needs mirror our cultural ones.

Chef Shaun O’Neale, My Modern American Table (Winner of MasterChef Season 7)

Chef Shaun O’Neale, a DJ from Las Vegas, Nevada, earned his spot in the MasterChef Kitchen by cooking a surf and turf dish topped with foie gras and a bone marrow buerre blanc sauce. He didn’t stray from his high-end, fine-dining influence on his dishes, which led him to winning multiple Mystery Box Challenges and securing his spot in the finale. The finale is where he wowed not only Gordon and Christina, but also guest judges Wolfgang Puck and Daniel Boulud with his three delicious dishes: an appetizer of miso halibut cheeks with vadouvan carrot puree and pickled mushrooms; an entrée of ancho coffee-roasted venison loin with roasted chanterelles and smoked plums with a truffle demi-glaze; and a salted caramel chocolate tart for dessert. In the end, it was Shaun’s exquisite flavors and thoughtful dishes that won over the judges and earned him the MasterChef title.

South American Voices: Chantel Acevedo, The Living Infinite and Santiago Gamboa, Return to the Dark Valley (Europa Editions panel)

Chantel Acevedo’s novels include Love and Ghost Letters (St. Martin's Press), which won the Latino International Book Award and was a finalist for the Connecticut Book of the Year, Song of the Red Cloak, a historical novel for young adults, A Falling Star (Carolina Wren Press), winner of the Doris Bakwin Award, and National Bronze Medal IPPY Award, and The Distant Marvels, (Europa Editions), one of Booklist's Top Ten Historical Novels of 2015.
   
Santiago Gamboa is one of Colombia's most exciting young writers. In the manner of Roberto Bolaño, Gamboa infuses his kaleidoscopic, cosmopolitan stories with a dose of inky dark noir that makes his novels intensely readable, his characters unforgettable, and his style influential. His debut novel, Páginas de vuelta (1995), established him as one of the most innovative voices in Colombian literature. He has since published seven novels and two collections of short stories. His journalism appears regularly in El Tiempo (Colombia) and Cromos, and he is a regular contributor to Radio France International.
