Of Wraps and Wifi

Standard

We have had a busy day and that’s not a complaint.  We’re offering wraps, both cold and toasted – you choose the flavours…  We are also happy that our wifi is now available!  We have set up a Raha hotspot.  In fact, what’s pretty special is that we’re the only cafe offering wifi here at The Slipway, so welcome to our shop, peruse our selection of light lunches, snacks, cupcakes, juices – of ilk both healthy and indulgent, and have a sit… have a read, and enjoy the quietness of our space.  Karibuni wote.

Not to mention our chocolate cupcakes.. Cocoa from Mbeya inside, cocoa nibs and chocolate sprinkled.  No, really.  Chocolate is an antioxidant… and we’ve put the good stuff on top!

April Frills

Standard

Exciting stuff for us these days!  We survived April Fools Day, but not until the incredibly long but wonderfully rewarding day we had at the Oyster Bay Farmers Market on the 29th of March.  That evening we set up shop at Nafasi Artspace  during a great event they had to kick off the season, we were only sorry to have missed the parade from Mwenge to Nafasi!

20140402_134131Today we tried our hand at Focaccia.. and to our delight it was a success!  do let us know if you’d like to have this available at Bio Shop or anywhere else, we promise it will be on offer at next month’s farmer’s market, along with Silvana’s wonderful apple pie, and mango passionfruit tart.

The unctuous crunch and the rosemary and onion topping were to die for.  yum.

 

ALSO! We’ve been very happy to be providing hotdog and hamburger buns as well as grissini to The Butcher Shop in Dar (Corner of Kahama Road and Chole Road, Masaki).  They’ll be available from about 11am but get there early and they close at 3pm on Saturdays.  If you’d like to see any of our other products there, please do let John or Dion know, we would be happy to arrange it.

Exciting times for us at Sweet Rebel Home Bakes!  I am having an amazing week with the ladies here at the bakery, learning their bread baking tips and tricks, teaching them a few of my own (Thanks Rahul for the NYATI Flour!!) and turning out the largest New York Cheesecake I have ever yet managed.
