Again, because of the heavy rains this week, the store was very quiet until about 4pm. Just by luck, Paige stopped by because she is embarking on a killer project–beer brewing. Not only that, she wants to document the whole experience on a blog. So, we spent a good part of the afternoon setting up the address and layout. All that’s left for her to do is to fill it up now. I’m not going to give the address just yet, but I will when Paige has the chance to write a post.
In other news, Cameron decided to introduce his upside down pineapple cake to tonight’s customers. He gave Paige and me a small sample before he went off to bake the entire cake. DELICIOUS. The texture was just perfectly light and fluffy, the color an inviting yellow. There was just the right amount of sweetness. The sample didn’t have any of the homemade caramel or pineapple chunks that the true cake will have, but the batter alone would have sufficed for any dessert. It’s a shame I couldn’t stay long enough to taste the finished product.
Lastly, Carlos confided a great task to me–I get to make all new cheese labels for all the cheeses. That means my little blurbs are the texts that could convince someone to get the Lambchopper over the Ewephoria, or convince someone to try parmesan reggiano with champagne. I’ll be working on that during down time at the shop. When it’s finished, I’ll be sure to post some examples here.
