Allow Me to Introduce Myself

A couple of days ago I mentioned the possibility of baking for a local ultra hip restaurant and today I had my meeting with said restaurant's ultra hip owner and...I am in! There are quite a few things that need to be ironed out like price points, display and menu but everything looks like it is going to turn out amazing. I do not have a head for business, to me that is grown up stuff (yes, I am 28 but still very much a child) and I would love the world to be all soy milk and cookies, but I think this restaurant owner will really help me understand the "adult" side of owning a bakery. I feel very elated, and also very nervous. I am getting all the bit closer to achieving my dream and it is frightening. It is one thing to keep putting things off for a later date, labeling something a future endeavor and leaving it as that. It is another thing completely to grab your dream, give it a firm handshake and introduce yourself.

more details to follow at a later date.

  1. Rikki! I am sooo happy for you! I hope all of you dreams of vegan bakery come true.
    Let me know if there is anything you need from me!

  2. Ahhhh!!! I knew he was going to love you. I can't wait to go into a real restaraunt and order a made by Rikki creation! We need to go for drinks to celebrate :)

  3. Yay! Congratulations. One step closer to opening "Adelaide's" ;o)
    Best of luck hon, with the whole thing. You'll do brilliant, I'm sure.


  4. Aww this is so great! I am so glad you're reaching your dream!

  5. Wow! This is so awesome! Congratulations!

  6. Wow. That is so great. I can't wait until you get there AND reveal said restaurant.

  7. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I can't wait to frequent this place! I am so happy for you being one step closer to your dream. It is scary when things start working out, isn't it? ;c) Sounds like you're doing well to not get in your own way though. I heard a show on the radio the other day about making it as a chef/baker these days and you are doing everything right! They said to make a name for yourself through another establishment, create a fan base then move onto your own thing if you want. You are a smarty adult without even knowing it!

  8. Congratulations Rikki!! :)
    That's incredible news!
