I wish I didn’t need social media, but I do and it’s a part of my business that I do not enjoy. Maybe, I’ll learn to like it. However, I love building up my gluten-free culinary business & website: www.CountryKitchenCenter.com. The business touches on many things that I love: baking, cooking, talking food, teaching food and planning classes and lessons.
Right now, I have a bread in the oven. I proofed it- let it rise – next to the warm, wood oven and the dough formed such a beautiful dome that it already looked baked. I’m so excited to learn more about baking gluten-free yeast breads. I may be a culinary teacher; but I wanted to develop a better technique for making yeast breads. I took a course at the Institute of Culinary Education “ICE” in New York City. The instructor, Michelle, was a “teacher’s teacher”. I got so much from attending her class about delivering instruction and baking myriad gluten-free bread products. I aim to provide the same level of instruction – but in a smaller, country kitchen setting. Yes, you can see why I named my blog and business as I did. I can’t wait for more of you to come experience this pastoral scenery when you come to take classes and tour the area.
I just wish there was a quick way for me to get up to speed on using social media to build my business. I know how it important it is and I need to use it on a regular basis. Many of you will say that’s “a piece of cake”! However, I prefer real face-to-face contact, a good asset for a teacher. I like to converse in person, I like to have a phone call rather than text and when I’m in a restaurant enjoying good food and company, I am not on my smart phone.
I’m writing this post now to share my feelings about using social media. I know that it’s important to get on it on a regular basis and share my thoughts, experiences and photos. Soooooo, please help me out by sending me your comments to this blog Country Kitchen Chaos and going to my FaceBook/Country Kitchen Center page and my website: www.countrykitchencenter.com Please send me your thoughts and suggestions on increasing my “social media” awareness & ability to reach out to a larger audience.
The bread is in the oven and I just turned the bread to help it bake evenly. It smells wonderful, just like a bread from an old-fashioned bakery.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please share this post here, and share my FB/CKC page. Help increase my “hits” and following!
