A Touch of Divinity: Cooking with Barbara Tenney at KaTom


The only place that I have ever tried Divinity candy was in Gatlinburg. I recognized that it was a treat that it was hard to find. Yesterday, we had something closer to heaven during the cooking demo at KaTom with Barbara Tenney. Here are the most important tips on how to make an out -of-this-world treat. 

Melinda and Leisa are ready to go.
Festive front steps. 

We arrived just in time to grab a stool at the bar. The holiday candy bar! 

There is a saying that it is almost impossible to make candy on a rainy day so we crossed our fingers! 

The recipe is fairly simple. 

Sugar almost to the boiling point. Barbara says that you MUST have a good candy thermometer. You can find plenty at KaTom. 
The last part of the recipe requires shaping the individual candies and placing a black walnut on top while the dough is warm. 

Melinda volunteers to help with the candy layout. We were all envious!

Makes you want to lick the spoon, but someone was too shy to ask. 
A friend gave Barbara this apron as gift and I couldn’t help but admire it. It looks like a painting. 
Yes, they were fabulous and we got to take a few samples home. I gave mine to Gera after our lunch at Thai Basil so I could  spread a little Christmas cheer. 
I loved my Cappuccino from the wonderful coffee machine. 
A sign of the times. Get ready! 
This could be a new obsession!
Always get your picture with the cook. She is our culinary ‘rock star.’ 

It was a quick trip out to KaTom Chef Supplies, but we really enjoyed this one very much. But guess what is coming next week? It may be one of the best! 

Barbara Tenney said that she may make a couple kinds of Truffles next week. 

Save us a stool at the bar! It will be a great way to get out and about in Sevierville.

    That divinity looks exactly like what my Mom used to make. It was so good. She also made chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge.
