Report: eGullet Chocolate and Confectionary Workshop 2019

Recommended Posts

And so it begins again! I’m winging my way to St Louis via Detroit instead of Atlanta due to a flight delay that would have had me miss my connection.

 

I can’t seem to upload photos right now - will try to add my lounge breakfast and tomato juice when I reach Detroit.

I decided to drive to the workshop and stopped for the first night in Clarksville, TN (yes...the Clarksville made famous by The Monkees).  After 10 hours of driving, I was hungry and a bit tired.....Mission BBQ was about 1 Mile from the hotel....

had their sampler of moist brisket and pulled pork.....

Hope my luggage makes it with me - or no chocolates.

 

Just received a picture from Ruth - Bob with my luggage in St Louis!

We are delayed as well. Our original flight was pushed back 4 hours (would have missed dinner tonight) so we switched departing airports. Still routed through Chicago but we have delays here due to storms - had to wait on the tarmac because nobody allowed out to hook runway to plane, then we got off and another delay so we had to wait to get our bags (which we had to gate check). Then we got to our gate, then a gate change. And now we are waiting on our plane to get here.

At National airport waiting to board the airplane. Had a bit of lunch at the airport, quite acceptable for airport food. Looking forward to tonight’s dinner at Bulrush. Hoping all goes well and I see everyone in St. Louis tonight!

The weather here is beautiful.  90 degrees....(according to the car thermometer), partly cloudy, beautiful blue sky behind the clouds.  A perfect day for a Confectionery Workshop....

 

Kerry, your luggage arrived sans you, but it is currently safe and sound in your room.

I made it to Atlanta.  One more flight to go!  I don’t travel by myself very often and I’m realizing that airports are so much easier without 3 little kids in tow.  It’s kind of relaxing to sit here while I know my husband is at home running carpool and after school activities 😂

Little verbal curiosity for @gfron1: is there a reason why you used "cattail" instead of "bulrush" in the menu on the wall?

Bulrush is the term common in Europe. In America few know the word although most are familiar with the word because of Moses in the Bulrush. We work hard at not using jargon or uncommon terms when describing our food (sometimes quite a challenge), but like a little mystery and uniqueness in our name.

My breakfast - I had a nibble on the scone but saving the rest for later. Honey cardamom latte and potato breakfast burrito. Quite lovely, loads better than yesterdayC9F11E00-6B4C-4268-A829-377790B7AE34.thumb.jpeg.fc375905a7f78fbf06db1472f4865a4f.jpegD56A9214-9952-4268-BF68-BD42E606A79D.thumb.jpeg.0e8ec01ce939b11e078cd52008b054d0.jpeg
