Scary Eclairs @ Harmons

Are you looking to hand out – or maybe just enjoy yourself – a different kind of Halloween treat this year? How about “Éscares” – Scary Éclairs.” On Saturday, October 29th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. you can join the chefs at Harmons Cooking School located at the Farmington Station Park Harmons to make some scary éclairs. 

According to Harmons, “Chef Pete will show you how to make perfect pâte à choux, a delicate dough used to shape éclairs. You will also be making your own spooky fillings, and decorating them to your devilish delight! While we demonstrate how to make the perfect “éscares”, we will be offering a light lunch. But don’t get too full, we’re going to be sending you home with all of your frightening creations!”

No reservations required, enjoy a unique setting on the patio on a first-come, first-served basis.

Utah Chef Returns to the Small Screen

When chefs Bowman Brown and Viet Pham opened Forage restaurant in August of 2009, they permanently changed the dining scene in Utah. They were serious about farm-to-table cuisine, going as far as to forage for many, if not most, of the ingredients used in their kitchen. It was a remarkable restaurant. 

After Forage closed Viet Pham created his Pretty Bird Nashville-style chicken restaurants and appeared on numerous televised food shows, including Extreme Chef and Iron Chef America, where he beat Bobby Flay on his own competition cooking show. 

Well, I for one can’t get enough Viet. If you feel that way too, you’ll be happy to know that he recently returned to the small screen appearing on TV in Hulu’s Chef vs. Wild as well as Bobby’s Triple Threat, Bobby Flay’s newest cooking show on the Food Network. Look for them online or from your favorite provider. In the meantime, for the best hot chicken in the state, visit your local Pretty Bird.
