What’s On: Ruth Pretty’s Christmas in Venice
Ruth Pretty’s Christmas Cooking classes are back. This year Ruth takes her cooking students on a trip to Italy with her Christmas in Venice class.
Classes run from October 31 – December 20. These classes sell out every year so book your tickets early.
In Ruth’s Words:
My goodness you certainly deserve a day away pretending you are in Venice. I dream of this destination and remember its extraordinary atmosphere where high spirits poured forth happily. Over a Bellini or two we could reflect on what a year it has been but better still we can simply dream.
Our Christmas classes have a well-deserved reputation for being not only deliciously tasty (goes without saying) with new ideas blended with familiar flavours, a lot of fun, all dressed up with a tasty theme and a riot of colour. Christmas Class students sign up for a very fun big day out so at home they can create an extremely exhilarating Christmas day dinner. Everyone has a wonderful time and you might even end up singing.
We promise you magnificent food with abundant hints knowing that you love food, love cooking, and the people you are cooking for. We have always believed in this Italian credo. Care and love is essential to the making of any dish.
The idea is to mix things up. Not necessarily set courses. Lots of different dishes, so there is always something for everyone: seafood, meat, salads and vegetables, fresh as can be and exploring fun, festive flavours. And we won’t forget dessert. Buon Natale.
10.00am – 4.30pm, morning tea served from 9.15am in our Garden Room
Price: $240 per person
