About The Event:
Who doesn’t love a fresh-from-the-oven cookie, oozing with melty chocolate? If you enjoy living the cookie life like we do join us to learn how to make Kitchen Millie’s signature two-bite cookies! Fresh, soft, and incredibly delicious, we’ll walk through all the steps to making the perfect cookie that’s just the right size to have one (or 5) and get right back at it.
Kitchen Millie was founded by Michelle Wax, a determined entrepreneur who left the tech world to turn her childhood lemonade stand into the cookie startup that is taking Boston by storm. As part of this class, you’ll get a chance to pick her brain on the food startup life while munching on two-bite treats!
What You'll Do and Learn:
The class is held at The Local Fare, a shared commercial space in Arlington. We’ll start with a history of how KM got started and some fun facts about The Local Fare and Kitchen Millie, including some FAQs about food startups in general. Then, we will walk through all the steps to making a delicious cookie, from how to best soften butter (and how soft it should be!) to the art of rolling dough balls, to getting the perfect bake. We’ll finish with a taste test of the cookies, with each participant making a platter of 3 dozen cookies to take home — or eat in the car!
Depending on the group size, we’ll split into two teams for each recipe, with each group tackling wet or dry ingredients (and then switching for the next recipe so everyone gets to learn it all!)
We’re all about chocolate over here, so we’ll make our three most popular flavors featuring this delicious sweet:
The Unrivaled Classic: classic chocolate chip, featuring New England’s original Toll House chocolate chips
The Velvet Rush: a double whammy – chocolate cookie flooded with chocolate chips
The Flourless Blitz: peanut butter base with a hint of bittersweet Taza Chocolate on top
