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.

Back to my ROOTs
Not too long ago, Jason Wilson wrote an article about a curious liqueur named ROOT (I’d prefer that it was simply “Root,” but Art in the Age seems rather fond of the all-caps title). I was very intrigued, but not by the fact that he described as an American amaro based on the predecessor of root beer and birch beer, but because of its Pennsylvania-Dutch origins.
