Opening and running a bakery in Honduras is only for the most dedicated person.
One such person is the owner of "Mesa Artesanal Bakery". Her dedication is a
marvel. I helped her open a bakery 13 years ago which was short lived when the
hillside gave way and the bakery slid with it and all was lost. She pondered for 9
years what to do, as she desperately wanted a bakery. 3 years ago she came to me
for two more courses to refine her cakes and Chocolates. 2 years ago she opened a
beautiful bakery with the feel and taste of Paris.
We talk on "FaceTime or WhatsApp" almost daily, usually discussing baking issues. I
go to Honduras 1 to 2 times a year to run her bakery while the family goes on
vacation for a month or so. I am so delighted to take on the job. Not speaking
Spanish is no longer an issue, as the "App" "Translate" even though not always
perfect has proven to be a real help. The employees and I laugh a lot but we really
get things done. We try new thing and they learn new products and it is a great time
for all of us.
