Food and Friends and Love

This weekend marked the kickoff of the 2nd annual Phil LeBlanc Memorial Tennis Tournament. It was a smoking hot day but it didn’t stop friends, family, acquaintances and volunteers from coming out to show their love for Phil and their support for a great cause!

Noshfood came to town with a sack of goodies in hand…somewhat reminiscent of Santa Clause.

I was thrilled to see that by days end there was not one crumb to be found. There is nothing like watching young kids devour the icing off a cupcake or cram a giant cookie into their mouths. I mean, sure, watching everyone else enjoy the goods is great and all… but it doesn’t compare to watching a little girls eyes grow to the size of dinner plates at the site of the table (Of course, only after a confirmation nod from mom/dad that they can, in fact, go face first into the goodies).

A wonderful day was had by all and I couldn’t have been happier to be able to help.

I&#8217;m in my first week of working with cakes and had a request for a donkey. I&#8217;ve never worked with fondant before so this was my first attempt making (marshmallow fondant), and creating something from it. This donkey may look like his mother bred with an elephant&#8230;but quite frankly, I&#8217;m shocked he came out looking like any member of the animal kingdom.

Life As a Business Owner!

Oh my, hello there!

I’ve popped in to tell you a little about what’s been going on. Or perhaps to have something to look back at in a year and think “My my, I’ve come a long way from not knowing anything about how to run a business”.

Noshfood is now officially licenced with the province of Ontario as a Wholesale Bakery/Catering operation (operation makes it sound a little saucy and devious, no?) and while I feel joy and excitement about this new venture… I’m also having a hard time breathing/sleeping/eating (ok, not eating. I lied) without slipping into a full blown panic attack. It’s scary knowing that it’s actually real. Now I have to do all the things that really scare me the most. Like finding a kitchen, deciding if I can quit my day job, finding funding, hiring an employee, doing my bookeeping etc etc etc. That’s some grown ass shit right there (pardon the swears, it just seemed appropriate).

I’m going to see a kitchen on Tuesday in hopes of finding a little nook to (legally) run my business. It’s scary to think I might be locked into a lease agreement. The neat thing about the kitchen in question is that I would be running my business from there but they also run a hotel-esque building (I’m not comfortable giving more details than that) and have asked that if I do decide I want to use that kitchen that I could also do some cooking of my own for guests. It would be nice to flex some culinary muscle to people other than my close friends.

Like I mentioned before, it’s so very scary to think that you might not have a day job (and a generous income) to support you any longer. But at the same time, if I don’t put my all into this and give it all my time and attention then it feels like a waste to continue.

 

Why isn’t there some sort of answer handbook for all of this to reassure me I’m on the right path. Someone should write one of those. Probably not me, though.

And now I’m off to make a donkey out of marshmallow fondant for the first time (Oh, did I mention I’m doing cakes now? Because I am.)
