So who are you guys?
We are a small, family owned company located in Langley, British Columbia (that’s just outside Vancouver). We love good food, spending time with friends and supporting our community.
Here are some of the things that are important to us:
- Making exceptional products
Regardless of what we bake or create, we intend for it to be outstanding. Life is way too short to settle for mediocrity, or to waste eating “average” food. Baking can be long and gruelling work at times, but when you stop and see the facial expression on someone who has just tried one of our vanilla macarons – and you can see their entire world stop before your very eyes – it’s all worth it. More than once we’ve had people tell us that our macarons are the best thing they’ve eaten in their entire lives. There’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing and hearing that people love what you’ve created for them.
It can be a bit harder to embrace the community aspect of a business without having an actual store / cafe / shop, but nonetheless community is tremendously important to us. Whether it’s volunteering in the community or making meals for friends in need, we want to make a difference and see people living in community with each other.
There’s nothing more important than friends and family, and sharing a meal is the most natural way to bring together the people who are important to you. Whether it’s over bread and cheese, a box of macarons, a pot of homemade soup or a delicious 5-course meal.
- Local food and local businesses, whenever possible
Working with and supporting local businesses and, as much as possible, consuming food from local sources is another thing that’s really important to us. I think that we’ve really lost touch with where our food comes from, and it’s something that should be important to all of us.
Carly is a tall, incredibly hard worker who loves thinking up new macaron flavours. She’s the type of person that people will spill their heart to, even if she’s never met them before. She likes baking, rowing, hiking and meeting all the great people who love our products.
