ABOUT THE SHOW
“Pre-Prans with Ruthie” is an Ignatian food show on the IN Network that brings the time-honored Jesuit tradition of “preprandials” (think: happy hour) to your home through easy to make & share recipes that are infused with Ruthie’s stories and lovable personality.
WHO IS RUTHIE?
Ruthie is a mother of two grown kids and fifth of twelve siblings. A retired yoga instructor, she now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, serving as Kitchen Manager at the Jesuit Novitiate, in addition to owning and managing Organized Living with Ruthie. As a niece and sister of two Jesuits, her ties to the Society of Jesus and Ignatian Spirituality are life-long.
WHAT IS PRE-PRANS?
Pre-Prans is basically happy hour. Short for preprandial, it’s anything done right before a meal, like having appetizers and drinks. In the Society of Jesus, “pre-prans” is a traditional way that Jesuits who live together make time in their busy schedules to gather as a community.
