Conroy & Company's Day Off………a Food Story at The Kitchen At The Store!

YfAA525tAEHS6F8LMxd2OGWoTF2oemqNkTcdQiF5854

Every so often, we like to do something together  as a Team that’s not Real Estate related in any way.  That was this past Wednesday, and a blast was had by all in Waitsfield, Vermont.

Mike, our founder and CEO loves to cook and has been learning his hobby for years by, among other routes, spending time with all the TV shows – starting way back when Emeril was the big new thing. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Top Chef, Chopped, even reruns of the Galloping Gourmet a few years ago all add up to some hours absorbing the lessons of the masters. Why didn’t we do something ‘foodie’ related.

So the 2014 Team Building/Afternoon Off Idea was hatched – How about a Vermont cooking experience with a Master Chef, learning, practicing new skills, and eating!  After some time on the web searching, The Kitchen at The Store was chosen.  A call to Kathy at the Store, some business transacted and voila, a Team Event was concocted.  5 awesome recipes for appetizers were picked, and with Chef John’s expert direction, the Team prepared to spend a couple hours in their ‘working’ kitchen/classroom.

A couple photo’s from the afternoon are shared here.  The Kitchen at The Store is in Waitsfield village, and a landmark place of sorts, there since 1965.  It’s a pretty easy 45 minute drive from Burlington, and their offerings are fun, flexible and you are sure to have a great time.  With an awesome MC and chef extrodinaire, John Lumbra to keep things light, entertaining and informative, we laughed, chuckled, eat and drank our way to a fun Team building late Fall afternoon – and added a new reason to be thankful that we work with an awesome group of people, and that we get to do that in Vermont!

We highly recommend them, and if you ever have a question about the experience – just ask us!

Who makes the best maple creemee in Vermont?

 

CREEMEE

Big question and an important one to investigate!  What out of staters are saying right now is WHAT IS A CREEMEE??? A creemee is a soft serve ice cream.Vermonters know that a great maple creemee uses real VT maple syrup-YUM! Summer visitors  shouldn’t be allowed to leave the state without trying a maple creemee. It may change them into 802 residents

At the moment it seems impossible to declare a winner. One must sample all at once to declare a clear winner. There should be an official VERMONT MAPLE CREEMEE  competition… that would be a worthwhile event!

Burlington Breweries-Take a Tour!

 

VT Beer

Did you know that Vermont boasts more breweries per capita than any other state?  Yep! Vermonters love their beer. The Burlington area is certainly a hub for brew makers with local celebrity breweries like Magic Hat in South Burlington -the  nation’s eighth-largest craft brewer. Locals and visitors alike will dig the  “Artifactory,”  which offers some cool history and awesome swag  for souvenirs.   But there is more than one show in town and a $60 ticket on Burlington Brew Tours will get you into Magic Hat, Fiddlehead Brewing, Rockart Brewery, Alchemist Beer Cannery (home to Heady Topper with it’s cult-like following), and the increasingly popular and recently retailed Switchback Ale among others. This is a great idea for a fun summer night with friends. Of course with these local brews being so available you may opt to stay in and do an at home tasting.  Cheers!
