Les Madeleines Cooking Classes

• 17 January 2010
























When we moved here from Boston, I set about doing what I'd already done in San Francisco and Boston...I found the best bakery in town and frequented it often :) In San Francisco it was Boulange de Polk just down the street from our apartment; in Boston it was Flour and in Salt Lake City it is Les Madeleines! Hence the reason I'm so excited to add Les Madeleines as a sponsor. Those of you attending the Altitude Design Summit this week will be interested to know that Les Madeleines is located just a block and a half from the venue. Do yourself a favor and stop by a few times...even if it is for just a drink. Her lavender lemonade is the best!

More excellent news: LM is offering fantastic cooking classes with a gourmet dinner included! (optional wine pairing too). You'll spend a few hours learning how to make world-class desserts and then sit down to a multi-course dinner that complements the desserts you just learned how to make ($75). Also offered is a simple Croissant + Pastry class ($50), a practical addition to anyone's repertoire. One of my friends attended this class and left with some mad-croissant-making skills.

It's been almost eleven years since my husband and I attended a cooking class together (it was our first date) and it's high time we press "repeat". We'll be attending the February 13th class featuring all chocolate desserts and a meal of steak frites as a birthday/pre-Valentine's Day celebration. We cannot wait! So, if you are tired of the usual dinner + movie date night and want to mix things up a little, try attending a class together! You'll have the opportunity to socialize, learn to make world-class desserts, and enjoy a meal prepared by a renown chef. Talk about a win-win :)

I love LM! And can't wait for Alt! Many little visits to their yummy bakery are in order! Great idea about taking a cooking class from them. The problem is that I would want to induldge too often if I knew how to make some of their amazing items! :)

Cooking classes are our favorite date nights. We once took a sushi class, it was a blast! Sur la table does a nice job too.

I stopped in there this week for my first time ever and tried the carrot cake sandwich cookie with cream cheese frosting. YUM.

stephmodo said...

Heidi, excellent choice. That carrot cake cookie sandwich is one of my all-time favorites there.

I just booked tickets to come out and maybe I could time it right to do this while I'm there! I would love, love that.
