The morning begins with coffee and fresh baked scones in Rialto's Lounge lounge. These were the perfect treat to wet your appetite for the rest of Jody's delicious dishes!
Next we headed into the main dining room to watch Jody's demonstration. We were all given recipe packets to follow along and take notes. Jody was great! So funny and personable, and she makes complicated recipes seem simple by breaking them down into smaller more manageable steps. She had some great tips, including the proper way to cut a pomegranate without making a mess and where to buy pasta sheets if you don't want to make your own from scratch (Dave's in Somerville)!
We sat down in a private dining room for the final two courses, and while we ate Jody came around and chatted with everyone.
