Thanks so much for joining us for another episode of Eat It and Like It with Jesse Blanco. If you can’t tell, we have a lot of fun putting this show together and most importantly finding people in the most unlikely of places doing fantastic things. This particular episode accentuated that rather dramatically with three incredibly talent women doing amazing things out of their homes. In this case, they are all artists, cookie bakers and sweets makers for dozens of clients across the region and the country for that matter. Here they are in the order they appeared:
The Kitchen Vixen – Jen Krzmarzick and her husband moved to Savannah from Alaska last year with the idea of buying a home that would have enough space for her to start her own baking business and tea room. The house they found in Savannah’s Victorian District was perfect. Big enough for her to grow a business and live upstairs. The tea room is only open on Saturdays, but Jen is always working on special orders like you saw in the show. Her talent is obvious and a visit to the Kitchen Vixen Tea Room in Savannah would be well worth your time.
E’couture Sweets Boutique – Ebony Clark decided to make candied apples one Halloween night years ago when her kids didn’t want to go out and trick or treat. It very quickly became an obsession, and shortly thereafter became a business. Now she is full blown, full service sweets boutique that can deliver you anything from a gift basket to a full blown sweets buffet at your next event. The apples are almost to pretty to eat.
De Colores Cookies y Mas – Ely Rooney is a formally trained chef who took on baking at home so she could manage her hours better and stay close to her family. The artistic talent she says took years of practice and includes some artistic genes from her family back in Houston. Ely has accounts across the country, all of the products made in her home on Savannah’s south side. Her chocolate chip cookies are some of the best I’ve had in Savannah. Big too! Yum.
