Choux & Co. ( Supporting Small Business)


Pasadena has a lot of hidden gems around the city but did you know that there are very talented small business owners selling some of the best goodies that can't be found any where else? I was fortunate enough to try Eugenie's choux. She is the founder of Choux & Co. and makes these delicious mini french pastry puff in two different flavors. There is the cheese choux and the crystal sugar choux. Both are available frozen so you will need to bake it off at 360 degrees for 25 minutes. After picking this up from Pasadena, I drove back to Orange County and tried baking some in my oven.

In my opinion, the cheese puffs were flavorful and very tasty. It baked off perfectly to golden brown. The sprinkled sugar puff came with a bag a crystal sugars where you'd have to dip and cover each puff before baking it. These puff are all delicious when paired with coffee. It's a great way to snack in the mid afternoon. They are tiny but so fun to eat and would make perfect appetizers. It's a definite crowd pleaser for future parties! Check out my IG: Missfoodaddict for a full video and review on these puffs!

How I got myself to work as a content creator for Jojo's Kitchen inside Haven City in Rancho Cucamonga... Haven City is a food hall that opened in 2019 around October. It's a fairly new place that has a hip vibe and many great restaurants serving delicious eats. I did a couple of media events for a handful fo restaurants and they've seen a sucessful growth of business. One day the owner of Jojo's Kitchen asked if I would be interested in working as his restaurants content creator. Having a good number of followers on Instagram and Youtube proved that I was able to make some eye catching content by creating videos and photo's. The audience is intrigued by delicious photo's of food or eye catching fun video clips. This also visually helps the potential future customers to try the food that they've tasted with their eyes. I saw first hand how the pandemic fractured a small business that was ready for take off. However, good food is what helps a business survive and keep it moving forward. You can do all the advertising across every social media outlets but if your food is dull and boring, the word of mouth spreads quickly and can damage your sales. Jojo's Kitchen uses their deep family home recipe made by the owners grandmother and father. Many Taiwanese customers had said this food reminds them of home back in Taiwan. That's when you know that your food is quite legit and it'll cause the customers to repeatly come back for more!
