Spring Break Camps!

Spring Break Camp Overview

This past week we had Kid and Teen “Taste the World” camps! The first four days they cooked meals from four different countries- Mexico, France, India, and China. The last day they paired up into teams and developed their own 2-3 course meal. I love seeing all of their reactions to new ingredients and flavors. (tomatillos– whaattt??) The last day is also so exciting because their imaginations run wild and they love to be independent in the kitchen. My favorites were the chicken curry enchiladas and chicken curry pot pies. I cannot wait to have more camps over the summer. Nothing makes me happier than getting a hug or a high five from a camper telling me that they had so much fun. Summers at The French Kitchen are filled with kid classes and camps- go to our calendar to check it out!

Here are some pictures from this past week:

Bonjour!

This past weekend, we spent the weekend in Mesa, AZ visiting our favorite business advisor and past client- Cindy. Blandine, Sebastien, and I flew out on Saturday night after a day full of classes and baking. This is our first trip together with just the 3 of us so it was great to get to know each other better and have some good laughs. On Sunday, we surprised Cindy and her husband, Bill and then went to a long brunch. We spent the day beer and wine “tasting” while catching up. Then we tried something new- an escape room. For those who are not aware of this new trend- you pick a theme based on difficulty and appeal, you register and then you are locked in a room with strangers and have to rely on each other to solve a mystery to get out. We managed to solve ours with 1 minutes to spare! (we also called several times for clues from the “lifeline” phone). It was a great experience and so much fun! We went back to Cindy’s house and played a fun card game until we were too tired to keep going. The next day we had a beautiful breakfast at Cindy’s house, a great manager meeting to discuss the goals of The French Kitchen and how we can improve. Then we played Top Golf in Scottsdale (which I won both games- hahaha!!). As we were leaving for the airport, Sebastien decided we had time for IN & OUT Burger on the way, so we stopped and got a quick burger. Much to our surprise, the rental car return was much further than we anticipated and our flight was in 1 hour. Stuck in airport traffic, we decide that it would be best if I take the rental car back while Blandine and Seb check in our bags and get in the security line. (AFTERALL, it was imperative they did not miss the flight as Seb had baking to do at 3 am and B had 2 soup classes the next day!). BUT we all made it to the gate just as they were boarding, THANK GOODNESS. We laughed it off as the weekend’s team building challenge #57. What a great weekend and a great way to celebrate The French Kitchen. Bottom line from the 3 of us: Even though we all have bad days, WE LOVE OUR JOBS AND OUR CLIENTS!!!!
