I had the opportunity to be a part of Harry & David‘s very first Hosted Dinner last month held at Larks inside Medford’s Inn at the Commons. You guys, it was awesome AND I got to do a giveaway for two extra tickets! I was so excited to hear that Harry & David is continuing to host more dinners throughout the year.

Leading up to the event, I was able to do a little behind-the-scenes at Larks and check out their dishes they would be serving for the Hosted Dinner. Chef Maggie Trujillo created the most phenomenal recipes incorporating Harry & David products. Really guys, this meal was one of the best I’ve ever had! All ingredients are locally sourced, and seasonal – which makes the menu even more exciting! Check out some of these photos from my time in the kitchen (and you can see even more on my Instagram profile from highlighted stories – click here)

First of all, you can get the recipe to this AMAZING chocolate truffle lava cake HERE

It was to die for. Sooooo good! (AND gluten free!)

The night of the Hosted Dinner was so much fun. I got to have a night out with Tanner and leave the kids with a babysitter – so it was bound to be a great night right then 😉 Top the night out with an amazing dinner?! yes. The Hosted Dinner is a perfect date night or girls night out!

We got to sit with the giveaway winners for the night – and even ran into another couple we know. What was fun about the night, was how Harry & David placed the tables. All of the guests sat TOGETHER around huge tables put together. It was a fun way to spend the dinner!


I totally bypassed taking photos of the salad and the giant steak because…. I ate it so fast! Ignore the horrible phone pictures… but I didn’t bring my nice camera for our date, and really enjoyed being present there for the dinner and interacting with the guests! There are more photos and videos on my instagram (saved in my stories’ highlight reel).

Harry and David has announced TWO MORE HOSTED DINNERS!
