I’m Ruthie, and I’m a little bit obsessed with food.

My passion for the edible has led me through jobs in restaurants ranging from pizza joint to fancy French, through becoming intimately involved with my college’s chapter of the Slow Food movement, and through several food-writing internships, most recently at Food Network Magazine. A ’12 graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Midwesterner at heart, I currently live in New York City pursuing my dream of becoming a “real” food writer.

What does “tasty” mean to me? It’s food that not only tastes good, but feels good and does good. I believe food is tastiest when it’s:

-In season



-Not processed


-Shared with others

It’s rare in our busy lives that we eat a meal that combines all these factors, and that’s where the “tRuth” comes in. The tRuth is that life is imperfect and often out of balance, and our food choices are too, even if we strive for an ideal. This blog is a tRuthful record of my continuing pursuit of food that is truly tasty, whether it be in a restaurant, in the confines of my own kitchen, or in the cheese department at IKEA. (And sorry, but you’ll just have to get used to the lower case t, upper case r thing. It’s not going away.)

Glad to have you along for the ride.

  1. A new (relatively) blog. I’m very excited for you. Your “foodie quotes” intrigue me and make me want to stick around. The glass of white wine from lunch allows me to comment. Followed you here from a comment you left on Pinch My Salt. Good Luck.
