Gourmet's Adventures with Ruth
Tue, 05/22/2012 - 7:30pm

Jump into a gondola with Ruth and Academy-Award winning actress Dianne Wiest as they learn how to cook and eat like true Venetians from Enrica Rocca, an Italian countess. Rocca leads them through the Rialto market, where they get to shop with the locals, then bring back their finds to the Rocca family’s 16th century palazzo for cooking lessons in high Venetian style. But it’s not all work; the curriculum also calls for a traditional Venetian Prosecco spritz break at 11 a.m. and a chocolate-tasting adventure.
