Here to Answer Your Potential Pastry and Baking Questions
When I look back on the past 10 years of my life, I’m slightly amused. The farmers’ market is going well. The township where it is located has definitely impressed me. When the time is right to open a storefront it will be in the area. I’m still in a stalemate between my love of writing and baking. At least at this point in my life, I know what I do want. Thank goodness because I’m not young and don’t have time to waste.
I mentioned before although there are guides on how to start a business, there isn’t much to avoid the bullshit. A lot of people have misconceptions about how the food business works – even those who are starting a food business. There are so many rules and regulations to follow to protect the business owner, customer, and if you are a caterer protecting the venue.
I also want to avoid a waste of my time. If I work harder not smarter that’s my problem. If you insist I do it then you are an idiot. I’m sure in hindsight I’ll see a lot I did wrong. So far I’m doing a lot right.
The only person I need to justify my actions to is The Pastry Prophet. I look to people who walked the same path to give me sound advice. They know how to avoid culinary minefields and avoid the bureaucratic mumbo jumbo.
