Comfort Me with Offal is a quick, fun read sure to entertain Ruth Bourdain’s more than 58,000 Twitter followers, as well as the rest of the culinary cognoscenti, provided they can take a joke, of course.

Ruth Reichl signs Comfort Me with Offal: “It’s not me!”
Comfort Me with Offal is one of “fall’s 10 hottest new cookbooks,” according to Zagat.
Appearing to us like a backlit god in a ravaged culinary landscape, rife with the smell of Batali’s Crocs and pretentious baristas, Ruth Bourdain arose from the Interwebz two years ago as an amalgam of former Gourmet editor (and flowery tweeter) Ruth Reichl and chef-cum-travel guide with a fondness for a well-placed cuss Anthony Bourdain. A James Beard Award for humor writing and more than 57,000 followers later, the bastard/bastardess’s true identity remains a secret. This month, he/she released a book, Comfort Me with Offal: Ruth Bourdain’s Guide to Gastronomy. And it’s fucking awesome.
The identity of the anonymous Twitterer who concocted a witty literary amalgam of Ruth Reichl and Anthony Bourdain is at issue again.
