Stephanie Inn Sojourn – Deconstructed Desserts with Kyra’s Bakeshop

Deconstructed Desserts with Kyra Bussanich and the Stephanie Inn Dining Room’s Executive Chef Aaron Bedard

Date:  March 29,  2018 (Event has already occured.)

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 was 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.

 Guests rolled up their sleeves for a lesson in lemon meringue, savory salmon bites, dessert décor, candying herbs and flowers, syrup infusing, cocktails and more. They left with new recipes, expert skills and take-home treats. That evening, they dined with Chef Kyra and feasted 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 were gluten-free. It was a deluxe, delicious experience to write home about, available nowhere else in the country.

4:00-6:30pm – Guest relaxation time

6:30pm – Dine with Chef Kyra and the other Sojourns guests on special, collaborative menu
