If you follow me on Instagram, last Thursday you saw my feed blow up with Harmons love. I had the pleasure of attending the most fabulous blogger event hosted by Today’s Mama. I have loved Harmons for quite some time now. I actually workout at a studio right next door to a Harmons. On Saturday mornings I have to make a conscious decision to NOT go anywhere near the bakery. After my hour-long high intensity cardio workout the smell of the fresh baked doughnuts is enough to make me go ‘Hulk’ crazy throughout the store. Between the doughnuts and the fresh baked bread it smells utterly amazing.
The first stop of our event was in the state-of-the-art kitchen with Chef Aaron. I have always wanted to take a cooking class and it’s quite surprising that I haven’t done it yet. It’s been on my bucket list for years. There’s nothing better than a professional giving you tips and tricks and teaching you things that you never knew but wished you had. That was our experience. Not only did we make a deliciously elegant meal together, I learned a lot! Chef Aaron explained and demonstrated several of the techniques for us initially – like how to make risotto, how to properly use a knife, and how to tell that your oil has heated enough in your pan. Once he shared his knowledge we were released in to groups of four and assigned a cooking station where it was our turn to make the yummy lunch!
