New Year, New Hobby at Terraces
Make 2021 the year you discover a new and fulfilling pastime. Looking for some inspiration? It’s right here. And — even better — all of these hobbies can be enjoyed from the comfort of your Pasadena townhome, condo or penthouse at Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens.
Learn to Cook
All Terraces kitchens come fully equipped with Wolf stainless steel five-burner cooktops and self-cleaning double ovens, as well as stunning Caesarstone countertops. You really can’t ask for a better setup to ignite your passion for cooking. Be mentored by the best in the business with a MasterClass subscription; Let Gordon Ramsay teach you how to prepare a fish for cooking, or make exquisite scrambled eggs. Discover Alice Waters’ recipe for salsa verde. Bake the perfect sourdough loaf with Apollonia Poilâne. Oh, and don’t worry about the washing up — your ASKO dishwasher will take care of that.
Learn to Mix Drinks
Truly enjoying wine and cocktails is all about quality over quantity. Expand your horizons by enrolling in a virtual wine tasting, or take your cue from James Suckling, praised as “one of the world’s most powerful wine critics.” He’ll tutor you on how to discern flavors and aromas, and, eventually, how to build and curate a personal wine cellar at your Terraces condo (If you’re a townhouse owner, it’s a great excuse to use your SubZero wine fridge and beverage center). Prefer to concoct your own elixirs? Turn to Lynnette Marrero and Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr. Lyan) on MasterClass, who’ll have you mixing mojitos, old fashioneds, and whiskey sours in a jiffy.
If you’d rather avoid the alcohol, meditation might be the soul-soothing experience you’re after. Decamp to the nearby Ambassador Gardens with a yoga mat, and clear your head of all worldly thoughts, surrounded only by the sounds of nature. If you need a guiding hand, Headspace’s meditation for beginners course is where your journey begins.
Brush Up on Interior Design
Since we’ve all been spending so much time at home lately, cultivating a hobby that will make your Terraces apartment reflect your personality is ideal. Stylist Emily Henderson will run you through the basics of styling, encourage you to discover your own style, and help you to develop it with confidence via color palettes, current trends, and even vintage finds. There will be a little bit of you in every corner of your Pasadena home.
Write A Book
“Mildred Pierce.” “Five Pieces of Jade.” “The High Window.” Some great books have been set in Pasadena. Why not add to this auspicious list by embarking on a novel of your own? There’s ample space to set up a home office in your Terraces residence, and you can get help filling the blank page with one of these edX writing courses.
This year enjoy a fresh start and cultivate your inspiration within the comforts of your luxury Pasadena condo, townhome or penthouse here at Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens. Contact us today to schedule your private in-person, or virtual tour.
