Just two weeks ago noted food author and chef Michael Ruhlman visited the college where I work. He is known for his books on food and chefs. But he is also recognizable as a Food Network judge from shows like “Iron Chef” and “Next Iron Chef.”

Ruhlman was a delightful guest. He’s a very accomplished writer who breaks down the essence of cooking by techinque and ingredients – just not another recipe.

While he was on campus we sat down and I interviewed him for our campus YouTube channel. But we also covered a few food topics.

I wrote a column a couple of weeks ago with Ruhlman on cooking with wine.
