There’s been a lot of talk today about the identity of Ruth Bourdain, the James Beard humor-award-winning Twitter account that deftly mixes up Ruth Reichl platitudes with Anthony Bourdain’s attitude, being our very own Robert Sietsema. But is this true? We asked Robert to elaborate.
Says Sietsema, via email from the Association of Food Journalists conference in South Carolina: “I know I’m not Ruth Bourdain because I’m looking at him right now.” And that is that. If you would like to follow Robert Sietsema’s own Twitter account, we highly recommend it: @robertsietsema.
