Synopsis >

Award-winning singer-song writer, musical composer and actor Rufus Wainwright joins Sam Mason in the kitchen for a German-inspired meal and two very special performances. Because Rufus visits the German Alps every year, Sam has designed a meal that’s reminiscent of that part of the world, but of course he adds a few culinary twists. Rufus claims his talent does not extend to the kitchen, but Sam still gets him to help prepare the delicious meal of Schnitzel at Last (rabbit schnitzel), Zebulon Spaetzle (mustard spaetzle) and New York Sauerkraut (parsnip sauerkraut). Once the meal is started, Rufus steps away to entertain Sam’s friends with his song “Zebulon.” When Rufus returns to the kitchen, he and Sam finish preparing the meal and Sam mixes The Judy, a sparkling Riesling cocktail. After they dine, it’s time for Rufus to play an encore with the song, “Who Are You New York?”
