This week, we had the great pleasure of being visited by Chef Tom, a "real, live" Chef from Harth, a new restaurant located at the Hilton in McLean/Tysons Corner. During Chef Tom's visit he gave Room 2 a hands-on cooking class. We made a delicious Pumpkin Spice Cake and learned about: how to follow a recipehow to use a siftermeasuring spoonshow to use a spatulaseveral spices that we now all love:  cinnamongingerand a combination called all-spice!   We thank Chef Tom and his assistant Christina for coming to our class, and look forward to cooking with Chef Tom again in the future :)
