I Am Ruth Bourdain (Not Really)


I’m constantly inspired by whoever writes the Twitter personality @RuthBourdain. It’s great satire, especially if you’re on the inside of the food scene. No one is spared. Nothing is sacred. Ruth Bourdain even won a damn James Beard Award. I don’t know if I’d have the discipline to remain anonymous after winning that.

Inspired by Ruth Bourdain, and the film Spartacus, I designed a t-shirt declaring any and all who wore it to be responsible. I only sold a handful, but even better than sales, I got one into the hands of my favorite chef, Chris Cosentino. It was an honor for him to wear it. For a while he was my top pick for Ruth Bourdain’s secret identity, but he’s moved into the number two position.
