If you need a break between errands and chores on Saturday, stop by the Roosevelt model home in the Berewick at Aberdeen community for cooking demos and food samples.
Stephanie Ashley, chef for the event, will share recipes you can pull together quickly for family meals or entertaining. The event, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., is also a chance for reps from Lennar Homes to show that the company’s properties are designed to fit modern family lives.
“Our chef at this event is a Mom herself and knows the challenges of cooking for a busy family,” Veronica Perez of Lennar Homes wrote in an email. “She will be able to share tips on how to make a delicious dishes, like puffed pastries, that your family will love and that will be easy for an on-the-go household.”
Of course, organizers also hope visitors will want to see the model home, at 6130 Berewick Commons Parkway, and the community. Homes at Berewick at Aberdeen, in southwest Mecklenburg County, range from 1,771 to 3,488 square feet, priced from the mid $200,000s.
Since we’re talking about modern life and new homes, here’s a prediction: Personal technology will be touted perhaps as much as the kitchens in model homes of the future. One clue is that Microsoft is working with the creator of popular home-automation standards as it looks to develop new Windows and mobile products. What does that mean? With Microsoft and Insteon as partners, you probably won’t consider The Clapper a go-to solution for turning your lights on and off remotely.
