Guest Chef – Genuine Fresche

Açaí Bowl Artist (n:) a person who prepares or sells fresh açaí bowls, juices, shakes, smoothies, etc.

We recently finished up our fifth filming in our Guest Chef series with Boyd Harrington. It has been so much fun, and a huge learning experience for us. Stay tuned to see where we will be filming next. We love connecting with local businesses and showing what it’s like to be behind the scenes to bring customers the products they order. So much time and effort go into making the perfect product! In out latest filming we visited Genuine Fresche where we learned how to make the perfect açaí bowl. Making the bowls quickly and perfectly takes a lot of practice, and we got it down to an art by the time we were finished filming. We had a great time connecting with customers while we were there!

The owners, Brad and Marcy, discovered that you could heal the body through food. Their youngest child had several health issues when he was young, and by changing their diet and lifestyles they were able to heal many health issues through food alone. This led to a lifelong commitment of healthy eating and living. They quickly realized that it was hard to go out to eat and find the right foods on any menu, so they decided to open their own shop, and Genuine Fresche was born! On the menu are some seriously delicious items, including açaí bowls, smoothies, shakes, and juices.

Guest Chef – Nitro Live

Nitrologist (n:) a person who works at the front counter guiding customers through the ice cream making process while ensuring that every customer receives excellent product and service.

We’re having a blast working on our guest Chef Series with our videographer, Boyd Harrington. In case you haven’t been following along on our Instagram page, we’ve created a unique concept of working behind the scenes inside local businesses. We love connecting on a personal level with local companies we love to support. We spent our time filming Episode 2 at Nitro Live learning how to make ice cream desserts out of liquid nitrogen! We picked up the concept quickly and had so much fun working behind their counter.

Nitro Live is family owned and operated by Felicia and Rich, who were on the brink of retirement, but decided to put that on hold to create a company that applies the science of liquid nitrogen to creating delicious ice cream tailored to customers’ needs and imaginations. They also have the ability to accommodate a wide range of dietary restrictions, including lactose free, no sugar added, low fat, and vegan treats. They also have a passion for making a difference in the community, including conducting demonstrations at local schools.

Guest Chef – SodaRush

Soda Jerk (n:) a person who serves and sells soft drinks and ice cream at a soda fountain.

If you’ve been following along on our Instagram page, then you’ve seen that we have teamed up with Boyd Harrington to create a unique concept of working behind the scenes in local shops. Our goal for the Guest Chef series is to connect better with the companies we love to support and get a feel for what they do for all of us consumers. We had a ton of fun at SodaRush learning how to make different drinks, fresh lemonade and interacting with the customers. Keep an eye out for more to come. 🙂
