Oh my love sweet lovers! This is exciting. We are coming up on our wildest season of classes yet. So exciting. We have more goods than ever in our shop (soon to be available online), plus you can now come for private shopping experiences with some of our staff nutritionistas. Jen has been busy ordering, stocking and pricing all the goods. That closet above, was once home to my wardrobe- and is now our micro-warehouse.
I love fall time. It means another weekend of Loving at the Veg Fair, another Apple A Day Giveaway and between now and December we're running nearly 40 classes. That's a whole lot of love going down in the kitchen.
I am working on escaping for one last week of lakeside loving before the chaos hits. In preparation for my final days of quiet, and Jen's big move to the neighbourhood of our cooking school, we've been working like the VitaMix on high speed to get everything ready, and set to go.
