I’m off to Chicago for the All Things Baking Expo. This was pretty overwhelming – a large room with many, many vendors…where to begin. Quite a few things didn’t pertain to me.. but where interesting to check out. The first breakthrough occurred when I met Chef Rubber, and he showed me his fun products and then introduced me to the girls at Guittard Chocolate Company. This is where I realized I really didn’t know much about chocolate. I got a crash course and was then invited to attend the Chocolate Academy in Chicago. WHAT – there is such a place!! I’m interested!
The day got better when I came upon the booth selling the Easy Roller. I’ve been eyeing this gadget…it’s a small machine that can speed up the cutting, rolling and balling process. It looked legit, so I ordered it – I’m eagerly anticipating its arrival. Stay tuned!
I also took some classes at the workshop. I found one super helpful in regards to marketing and one super lame..and a few middle of the road.
All in all, good trip and I got to meet up with my good friend Denise – had a great dinner at the hot new spot: Paris Club Restaurant. If you get a chance, look it up.
