The iconic appliance brand, known for their colorful, high-end offering, is sending Chef Susan Swanson to Abt to make eight different dishes for our guests to enjoy. Twice a month, Chef Susan will visit to demonstrate how to make fun, delicious seasonal recipes. The best part? There will be free samples for everyone to enjoy.
Visit the store next Wednesday to see a delicious fall apple recipe come to life. In addition to delicious samples, you’ll be able to see our BlueStar kitchen in action, whether Susan is pulling ingredients from the stunning custom panel refrigerator or cooking on the expansive gas range. Halloween lovers, you’ll definitely want to come by on October 26 to learn how to make festive, flavorful hot dog mummies. As we enter November, we’ll shift to Thanksgiving recipes, whether it’s delicious side dishes for your family’s feast or ways to repurpose your leftovers.
