"Gourmet's Adventures With Ruth" invites viewers to travel the globe alongside host and Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl, her Gourmet colleagues and celebrity guests, as they visit exotic cooking schools and experience the local foods and traditions.
Episode One: Blackberry Farm, Tennessee
In the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm embodies the heritage of American cooking that is informing the fresh and simple way we want to cook right now. Join Ruth and Academy Award winner Frances McDormand at this culinary resort as they roll up their sleeves and harvest their own dinner, as well as slide into waders to fly-fish for rainbow trout.
“On the farm, there’s a kind of self-sufficiency, a way of looking at both the past and the future.” —Ruth Reichl
