#34 Books That Make You Crave a Horror Novel – David Ruggerio

How yummy is a horror novel? One that hits the flavors of the genre and leaves you feeling oh-so-satisfied? 

Are you picking up the food references here? Not so subtle, am I? There’s a reason for that, because our guest today not only wrote a tasty scary book, but he is also a renowned celebrity chef and a man of many, many talents and creative devices.  

David Ruggerio wrote the wonderful horror book: A Wistful Tale of Gods, Men and Monsters. He is also an amazing chef, having begun his career at the legendary New York eatery, La Caravelle. He honed his culinary skills in France at several of the country’s leading restaurants and went on to host his own cooking show on PBS, was a famed chef in New York and has cooked for five US Presidents. 

David has written two acclaimed cookbooks which were published by Artisan books, “Little Italy with David Ruggerio,” and “David Ruggerio’s Italian Kitchen.” 

But today, we’re talking about A Wistful Tale, because as the leaves turn colors and the crispness of autumn fills the air, nothing is better than curling up with a scary book—am I right?
