On 15 May, the Studio partnered with Rialto Restaurant and hosted a benefit for Team Rialto - of Rialto Restaurant - and the Pan-Mass Challenge. The event was dubbed "ride.reception.raffle", and we had a lot of fun raising money for this important ride that benefits the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
We wanted to share with you the experience of one of our raffle winners, Michele Ming Shan Smith. Michele was the winner of an incredible prize: a signed copy of one of Rialto Chef Jody Adams' cookbooks, and a spot for two in one of Jody's cooking classes.
Michele blogged about the experience, and took some amazing photos.
On the day of the first class, Jody took the group to the Cambridgeport Farmer's Market. The class then headed to Rialto, where Jody taught them how to prepare, grill, and serve the farm-to-table vegetables they'd bought. Oh, and there was also instruction on how to grill lobster, along with a tutorial how to grill fruit for dessert! It sounds like one of the best parts of the day for Michele was the eating--and we aren't surprised:
"Ed and I had a great time. It's been a while since we've gotten to go out for a classy meal ... and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
The Team Rialto Raffle is ongoing, and you could still win a Seven Axiom SL. Please contact Rialto to purchase tickets and to support Team Rialto as they raise money for this worthy cause. And thanks to Michele for generously sharing her experience with us!
