Gourmet's Adventures With Ruth

Enrica Rocca's Venice

Season 1, Episode 4 of 10

"No matter how many times you come to Venice, you don't really get any sense of what it's like to live here. This time, I'm going home knowing what it means to be Venetian." Ruth Reichl 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, and 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.
