Texts, emails, messages of my retailers clients saying they have spent a few seconds in heaven or back in France while eating our products. 

What is your favourite product that you make?
Brioche, most definitely. So many memories of my childhood in France. 
My friends and I always say that there is no worries that an oven warm brioche and a handmade hot chocolate (milk in which you melt real Valhrona chocolate) cannot fix. 

Do you teach classes or workshops?
Yes, at Sauce at the moment (French cooking and baking), and looking at more options. 
Alos teach French classes through Bonjour Toowoomba, which I also own.
