How does one transition from being a French professional horse-rider to becoming an award winning caramel-maker in Australia? This is Rémi’s unusual story! One thing’s for sure: passion shines throughout his story. In this episode, you will find out how Caramelicious was born and how this small business grew. You’ll also learn about the technical challenges that Rémi (and Breena!) had to work around, and if you are in Melbourne during the upcoming Paris to Provence French Festival in November, drop by and have a taste of the caramel yourself! (If you’re not in Melbourne, don’t worry: you can get the caramel as well!).
Note: Thanks Breena for letting us know that “caramel maker” is “artisan-caramélier” in French! 🙂
