Deconstructed Desserts with Kyra Bussanich of Kyra’s Bakeshop

Hands-On Culinary Class with Kyra Bussanich and the Stephanie Inn Dining Room’s Executive Chef Aaron Bedard, followed by a Collaborative 5-Course Dinner

Date:  March 29,  2018 

Get ready to candy, compose, frost, flower, pipe and be absolutely charmed by the inimitable Chef Kyra Bussanich—acclaimed pastry chef, entrepreneur, author, gluten-free maven, dreamer and do-gooder.  The Stephanie Inn is delighted to welcome Chef Kyra, the only four-time winner of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, to lead an intimate, hands-on sweet and savory class at the Inn alongside our own Executive Chef Aaron Bedard.

Roll up your sleeves for a lesson in lemon meringue, savory salmon bites, dessert décor, candying herbs and flowers, syrup infusing, cocktails and more. Leave with new recipes, expert skills and take-home treats.  That evening, dine with Chef Kyra and feast on a 5-course collaborative dinner created by Chef Kyra and Chef Aaron in the dining room.  Both the class experience and the collaborative dinner are gluten-free.  This is a deluxe, delicious experience to write home about, available nowhere else in the country.
