    Eli's Cheesecake

    Thursday, Oct 13, 2011 2:00 - 4:30 PM @ Eli's Cheesecake Bakery
    This event is over! Please check the 2020 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Eli?s Cheesecake?s R&D Chef-for-a-Day Experience

    Live the Eli?s pastry chef experience! Work closely with Eli?s research and development chefs to learn how Eli?s desserts are created and then create your own custom cheesecake flavor.

    The lab begins with a teambuilding experience with your fellow guests in small groups ? you?ll see how Eli?s makes their delicious desserts and you?ll put your culinary skills to the test (don?t worry, no baking experience is necessary). Next you?ll get a V.I.P. behind-the-scenes bakery tour where you?ll see parts of the bakery that the public is not allowed to see! You?ll learn about ? and sample ? Eli?s quality ingredients and see how they?re put together to form Chicago?s favorite dessert. All parts of the dessert development process will be covered including mixing, baking, and decorating.

    Finally, each small group will work as a team and use what they?ve learned to develop a brand new custom cheesecake flavor. Each flavor will be reviewed by our pastry chefs and the ?winning? team?s flavor will be produced by our bakers. Each attendee will receive their very own ?winning? cheesecake, shipped anywhere in the continental US, approximately one week after the lab. Attendees will also enjoy samples and desserts throughout the day and will receive an Eli?s gift bag to take home.
