Oh sweet Macarons

The Patisserie and bread-making scene has picked up greatly here in the past few years, much to our taste buds and appetites’ delight. Thanks to places like Vovotelo, Dresden Bakery, Cobblestones etc we’re able to once again – since our trip to Europe, or the enlightened bakeries in the big cities of SA – dine on those delicious aromas, textures and tastes!

Now after many attempts at recreating it’s shape, texture and sweetness, Ginger Pops in Port Elizabeth will be selling the widely loved and lovingly devoured, French Macaron! With it’s beautiful variety of colours, flavours and fillings, these little treats are perfect on wedding tables, will brighten up party favours and dessert buffets, they’re delicious gifts for fellow sweet appreciators, and of course, a great treat to spoil yourself  with!

Should you want to order some macarons feel free to follow the link to my Facebook page for my email address!

Have a Heart for Japan

Japan’s in trouble and is working through a pile of disasters… There’s been a great response, world wide, of fundraisers and donations being raised and sent to offer relief to those without homes, food and water, and to aid in the rescue missions which are still happening as I write this.

As for the Nuclear reactors, I think all we can do from this side is pray that the problem can be can be sorted out before any more disasters fall on the Japanese community.

Even though I’m nowhere near that side of the world, I feel really thankful that there are people that are willing to sacrifice their time, sleep and even lives in working to help people.

All doctors, medical assistants and people outside of the disaster areas sending food and blankets etc to the earthquake and tsunami hit areas.

The leaders of Japan that have not slept in days.

The people in the disaster hit areas that have been so helpful and considerate towards each other.

The firefighters, pilots and rescue crews from around the world that have come to give helping hand!

AND especially…. all the people working to solve the nuclear reactor problem, risking their lives to save Japan. You guys are heroes and I pray for your safety and success!

Everyone that has offered help to Japan in one way or another, thank you!

みんあさんありがとうございます

I’m not from Japan, or Japanese, but it is such an encouragement to see a community of people so willing to help each other in bad times, and to see countries do the same.

Take care Japan! Good luck and our thoughts are with you!

Lots of love
