Ruth was just like she is on her television shows: passionate, informative and endearing. She told a few personal stories, talked about food trends, how Americans’ palates have changed and progressed but most fascinating to me were her stories about the magazine itself. With obvious sadness, she explained how there will never be another magazine like Gourmet again and La Diva heartily agrees.
Another comment that was not lost on La Diva was: “You better learn to cook vegetarian if you have friends or kids under twenty-five-years old!” and then lamented about meeting her son’s new girlfriend that was not only vegetarian but vegan! She explained how today’s youth are more ethical and aware in their eating habits and food choices.
To leave you with a final quote from Ruth: “We cook to tell the people we care about that we love them.” And La Diva SHALL continue cooking for people she loves…only 999 recipes to go!cooking class, cocktails, parties, cocktail party, Miami, coral gables, events, bartending class, cocktail class, Laura Lafata, Miami Beach, miami cooking classes, bachelorette parties, bachelorette party, personal chef, corporate events, catering, personal chef, party entertainment
