I enjoy my students very much, consider them my new dear friends that I hope to see again. As the demands of Southern Belle Biscuit Company grows -- I hold on to my small classes. For teaching and sharing the art of Southern biscuit baking is at the heart of my mission.
My thought is that my classes are really like inviting friends over-- eight of us sit in my Biscuit Kitchen, drink coffee, talk about biscuits, and share stories about biscuit making and the memories of those who baked them before us. It never gets tiring. In between all that, I share and demonstrate everything I've loved learning about this Southern art.
We eat, laugh, and drizzle butter and honey on hot biscuits until we can't eat any more. Oh yeah.. don't forget the gravy too. For me, I enjoy coaching my students as they make their own batches of biscuits - perfecting their techniques - and I have to say I've been impressed with the biscuits they make - many their first time.
As I write - I smile - glad that the families of my biscuit students will now have their own biscuit traditions to remember. Perhaps the echo I hear in their absence - is heart of their homes beating louder .
