Thermador Welcome Dinner

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

I am stuffed. πŸ˜•

Tonight,Β Thermador treated our group to a fabulous dinner atΒ Mastros City Hall Steakhouse to welcome us to Scottsdale and kick-off the “Now You’re (Steam) Cooking Blogger Adventure.”



I chatted with some really great bloggers this evening. Check out this crew:


The menu was pre-set, but we had a choice of salad, entree, and dessert.


To start, everyone enjoyed a piece of Jumbo Shrimp with “atomic” horseradish. Thankfully, we were warned that the horseradish was super hot, so no damage was done! πŸ˜‰ The horseradish was on par with wasabi, so, of course, I loved it!



For the salad course, I chose the Chopped Salad, which was an assortment of chopped veggies served with a light dressing, shredded Parmesan, and feta cheese.


For my entree, I ordered the Ahi Tuna, which ended up being the biggest portion ever! It was pretty much an entire tuna!! I ate quite a bit, but it still looked like I barely made a dent. I felt terrible wasting so much of it. πŸ˜•


Dessert was excellent: Chocolate Layer Cake!! πŸ˜€

By the end of the meal, I was pretty full, but I still managed to eat all of the frosting off of the cake, which is why I feel so stuffed right now. The cake definitely put me over the edge!


I’m on East coast time, so it’s WAY past my bedtime. We have an early start tomorrow morning, so I am headingΒ straight to bed. This time zone thing totally messes me up!

Good night, folks! πŸ˜€



  1. Wow, that really is a ridiculously huge portion of tuna – it DOES look like a whole tuna! Maybe it’s meant to be shared?! Your dinner looks delicious, and with so many awesome bloggers! πŸ™‚ I hope you’re having fun!


  2. I know nouvelle cuisine is too 80s for words… but it feels the tiniest bit unethical to serve portions that only a few NFL linebackers could eat. A happy medium, maybe? Or maybe I’m just jealous since I miss tuna now that I’m allergic to fish. πŸ˜‰

  3. That cake looks nothing short of amazing. Yum. πŸ˜€ I’m a frosting-picker, too. Even if I’m stuffed to the gills, I still have room for frosting.

  4. Too bad they didn’t serve 1/3 of that huge tuna portion and then add some nice veggies on the side !
    Looks like a tuna portion to split amongst a few people πŸ˜‰

  5. Holy crap, that cake looks SO good. I’m seriously salivating right now – chocolate cake is my true love in life πŸ˜€

  6. Hey Tina. Don’t know if you ever read the foodie website Serious Eats, but I was pretty amused to see this tweet this morning:
    @seriouseats Want a lazy summer idea? One less dish to wash, portability, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Need I say more?
    Lo and behold, it is OIAJ. Just wanted to share!

  7. That is my favorite place! We actually go to Mastro’s Ocean Club for special occasions (their seafood concept)and always get Ahi, sashimi style, sugar snap peas, and crabmeat truffle gnocchi for sides. And always plan on taking half that tuna home for lunch on top of salad next day.

    Enjoy rest of your trip, and if you guy get out to explore, hit Kierland for some fun shopping and eats.

  8. i think it’s really neat that you get to meet new people with the same passion for blogging and food! I have a feeling the rest of this trip is going to be HIGH CLASS all the way!

  9. Wow – the salad looked good already, but man…that tuna! And the cake! I see a trip to the seafood section in my near future…

  10. It was great meeting you today and getting to chat some (and eat) with you! What a great meal. I’m still stuffed this morning πŸ™‚

  11. Talk about a heavy hitting crew. Are you sure this wasn’t a blogger mob party? πŸ™‚

    And I’m sure your adventures are worth missing a few hours of sleep. Have fun!
