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 :)
