The former restaurant critic for the New York Times is teaching at Princeton University this spring. He graciously agreed to an interview with me for New Jersey Monthly to discuss his course, “Writing with Appetite.” We met at a Princeton coffee shop immediately after he conducted the first session. Bruni proved to be articulate, reflective and insightful (no surprises there), but also kind, polite, generous with his time and self-effacing.
The interview appears as the Dining Sidebar in the May issue of the magazine, and also online here. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
