The Homesteader supplying sweets to The Tonight Show
The Homesteader, a gourmet kitchen supply store located in the heart of Steamboat Springs has some exciting news.
Daniela Kennedy’s chocolates and other sweet treats have been discovered by one of the staff people for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show and are being shipped regularly to New York to be treats in the Green Room for show guests waiting to go on stage. Last Spring the staff person, who owns a property here in Steamboat, saw Daniela making sweets in the store, bought some and later contacted the store to make arrangements to have the sweets shipped to New York. According to Steve Kennedy, the staff person had been a regular customer of the store for years, usually purchasing their specialty cheeses. He had no idea that she was connected to The Tonight Show. What a wonderful tribute to Daniela and her candy-making abilities. If you haven’t stopped by to purchase some of candied almonds, lighter-than-air homemade marshmallows or almond toffee, you are missing out!
