Photos: Chef Massimo Bruno at Cook
Last week, I snagged a seat at visiting chef Massimo Bruno's Supper Club at Cook (253 S. 20th St.), presented by Mavea Inspired Water and Art in the Age. His bio says it best: "There is no 'ball sheet' [bullshit] at Massimo's table, but there's plenty of great food, a lot of passion, and maybe an opinion or two (or three or four)." Some highlights from the evening were the moist, meatless egg/cheese/bread balls in tomato sauce, the salt-crusted fish (keeping the scales on locks the moisture in and the salt out), and the flourless lemon ricotta cake, perfect for that I-don't-think-I-can-fit-anymore-in-my-belly feeling.

Win tickets to Massimo Bruno's Supper Club at Cook
Chef Massimo Bruno, well-known for his spirited Italian supper clubs held in his kitchen studio in downtown Toronto, is headed south to Philly next week to put on a show at Cook (253 S. 20th St.). Scheduled for next Thursday, Oct. 27, the multi-course meal will highlight the cuisine of Bruno's home region of Puglia, with plenty of educational breaks sprinkled throughout. (Get a taste of the chef's jovial style above.) The dinner, which is being put on in partnership with Art in the Age (handling cocktails), Teaspoons and Petals (after-dinner tea) and Mavea Inspired Water (each guest will leave with their filtration pitcher), is a private affair, but Meal Ticket's landed a pair of seats that we want to give away to a hungry and deserving reader.
