Sorting out a website and more

These last few weeks, we were thinking about selling our goodies online; we thought about it since we started our business but we didn’t have a real think about it until the last few months.

At the same time as trying to create a website, we ordered safe and beautiful boxes to send our stuff in. We finally got macaroon boxes and decorated biscuit boxes and they look absolutely amazing! I’m so happy with them! Even if the website isn’t ready (at all), I’m really excited about it!

Anyway, I had a quite busy week last week but very nice. I had a lot of occasions to celebrate : 3 Birthdays and, of course, Valentine’s day. This year was the first year when I really felt creative about it so I let my imagination go!! Valentine’s day is really big over here compared to France where people don’t really celebrate lover’s day.

I made a whole meal as a valentine’s present, my starter was a roasted red pepper soup with goat cheese. It was very tasty!

Here’s the recipe:

For 3 people, you’ll need:

–  4 red peppers
–  1 medium onion
–  1 clove of garlic
–  Half of a potato
–  Half a litre of vegetable stock
–  1 desert spoon of sugar

Cut in half and de-seed your peppers. Roast them under the grill until the skin goes black. Put them in a jug and cover it with cling film. When it’s cooled down, remove the burned skin, chop your peppers and leave them in a bowl.

Chop the onion, garlic and potato and cook them for 5 minutes in a bit of oil. Add you peppers and stock and cook for about 15 minutes. Blend your vegetables and season with salt, pepper and sugar.

You can serve it as it is or with a piece of goat cheese and a drizzle of cream.

Also this week, we worked in a lovely shop in Northampton: St Giles Cheese.

We supply them every week with a selection of our stuff. They are really nice people who care about local businesses and the quality of their products, I really recommend this shop, and not just because they sell our stuff!
