Pittsfield, MA (August 5, 2011) — Here’s the recipe: One fabulous chef, one stellar beauty consultant and two excellent massage therapists.  Blend it all together into an evening of culinary delights, learning, relaxation and beautification.

Energy Rising Massage Therapy of 150 North Street is rolling out a new program to debut in August where groups of women or men can host a spa party at their house.  Executive Chef David Slick or Sous Chef Shane Adams of Mission Bar & Tapas will orchestrate a 90-minute cooking lesson sharing skills from their delectable kitchen.  A “Six Bites” special menu will be showcased that includes some Mission favorites along with a few unique creations that promise to wake up your taste buds!

Brenda Garcia, Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay, will share free samples of a wonderful product line that includes hand and foot lotions as well as facial cleansers.  To apply these products, massage therapists Todd Fiorentino and Meghan Harrison will be on-hand to offer hand and foot treatments plus chair massage!

It promises to be a wonderful evening where friends can simply enjoy each other’s company in a “no sales pitch” atmosphere and where your guest’s every need is taken care of.  Mission’s Sommelier, Caitlin Harrison, is also available to consult with spa party hosts or hostesses on choosing wine for the evening.

Todd Fiorentino, owner of Energy Rising, said, “This is just a nice alternative to going out on the town and I really think guests will experience something new and exciting in a very comfortable atmosphere.  We’re overjoyed that Mission’s chefs have agreed to share their knowledge and skill with us.  Plus, guests can experience beauty and massage services while waiting for the food to cook.”

Those interested in booking a spa party should call Todd Fiorentino at 732-595-6064 or email  Spa parties are available on Tuesday evenings and other days by arrangement.  The price is $60 per person with a minimum of six participants; please inquire for bridal showers.  All ingredients and cooking utensils will be provided by Mission.  Read more at
