Up, Up and Away… The Media Launch- Madame Macaron at The Dirty Fork

There are times in your life that things seem to fall into place and the signs are all around you, nudging you into new and amazing directions. This year has been one of those times for me. I sometimes, in my rare times of quietness, sit back and marvel at everything that has happened. Building a business is much like a stream etching its way through a mountain until it can become a strong flowing river. It requires patience and perseverance and hard work and there are points where it seems like you will never get there, but little by little you work through it and come out wiser and stronger. I went through a great many rough spots where I felt like throwing in the towel but standing at the front of the kitchen at my very own launch made me so grateful that I stuck it out.

Months of planning finally came to fruition this past Thursday at the official launch of my classes at The Dirty Fork Studio. Thank you to media that attended. I had an amazing, fun time with all of you.

A special thank you to Nadine from The Candy Buffet Company as well for setting up the most adorable candy cart to display all my goodies and to Chef Jacqui Brown for envisioning and creating a venue like the Dirty Fork Kitchen where people can share their passion for food.

A final thank you to my family, who have gone wife-less and mother-less for many days and nights while I toiled away. It is only the beginning of my journey and there is still a long road ahead but I am thankful everyday for such an amazing support system. I love you guys!

The class information and dates have been published here so go to book and I will see you there!

The Inaugural Macaron Class

Taking a leap of faith is always a scary business, especially when its wok related. The sweet taste of success, though, is all the more better when it all works out:)

The decision to start doing lessons was something that I deliberated over for a very very long time. I had my moments of self doubt and anxiety, but ultimately I realized that I am good at what I do and I love sharing my passion with others. So that is just what I did! I had the aprons and tote bags printed, the note books made and sent out the booking information for the classes.IMG_5360IMG_5451IMG_5404-0IMG_5355-0

My first class took place last Saturday ( 11 April 2015) at The Dirty Fork Kitchen Studio in Durban North. Let me start by saying that the kitchen is AHmazing! Although it was not 100% smooth sailing ( teething problems are inevitable), it was, in my eyes, a great success. My goal was to create the type of class that I would want to attend. So a relaxed, fun and informative environment. I was lucky to have an amazing group of enthusiastic and fun ladies who were ready to learn and not shy to ask questions.

While waiting for the macarons to rest and then come out of the oven the ladies were treated to a presentation by Kirsty-Anne from Peg&Pencil who showed us all a few great ideas on how to gift our macarons.The gift packs that she has put together are amazing and made the stationery addict in me squeal in delight! I mean, how can you not love the macaron gift tags! She is seriously talented so go check out her website.

After some coffee, tea, cupcakes and macarons ,and of course some chatter, the ladies were ready to get their macarons out of the oven and the results were phenomenal. For many of the ladies, this was their first time making macarons, but they had beautiful feet and lovely shiny shells (yay!!). Everyone had a chance to get in touch with their inner child and decorate their macarons.(something that is a favourite activity of mine.)

We never really know what the future holds for us, we can only keep an eye on the prize and work toward it. Teaching the class was awesome and the look on the ladies’ faces when they had their perfect macarons at the end makes me wish that I could do a class every day. All in all it was a fabulous morning. I had an amazing time imparting my knowledge to the ladies that attended and I’m looking forward to the next class on the 25th.

The next class is next Saturday, 25 April. There are 3 seats left if you would like to learn the art of macaron making and have fun while doing it. There is also a special interactive Mother’s Day demo class and High Tea on 9 May 2015 and on the drawing board are classes on macaron fillings, novelty macarons, cake baking and cupcakes.

I will be doing a follow up post on the feedback from the ladies that attended the class as well as one showcasing the amazing set up by Kirsty-Anne and the styled photo shoot that she did using my macarons.
