After 6 years, it happened - how to handle a 1 star review September 11 2019, 0 Comments

After 6 years of making Coconut Chips, it happened.

We received our first 1 star review.

We've had hundreds of published 5-star reviews and thousands of happy customers. Most of the reviews give me the warm & fuzzies, but this one made me squirm.

Camping, Manu & Muesli July 08 2019, 0 Comments

You may have noticed our absence lately on Social Media.... we intentionally unplugged and 'went bush' with the kids.  We spent several days camping on the Mitchell River - enjoying the amazing tropical winter weather and quality time with the kiddos.

Ironically, my kids love food besides coconut chips, and camping tends to have a lot of junk-food. *sigh*

Before we left, I met Manu Feildel at the Sunday Port Douglas Markets.  I heard he was in town for a 'Chefs in Paradise' event, and sure enough I spotted him amongst the market crowds.  I used to watch him in the 'Ready Steady Cook' days, but I think he's best known for his role MKR My Kitchen Rules.  He graciously agreed to a pic with me and one of my staff Matthew - thanks Manu!

Speaking of cooking, last month's $5 Muesli/Granola deal was a hit and the results are coming in!  Check out these reviews:

"​Omg this is a wonderful product for Keto peeps that have been missing muesli. The way the coconut is made makes it. Love love love - thank you" - Tania

"Best Muesli I’ve tasted .. just add or not want you want .. the shaved Coconut takes it to another level . A really natural, feel good , taste even better muesli . Well done"  - David B​

So I've made the Keto Muesli official - check it out here

Here's a final pic of my 8 year old daughter working with me at our seasonal Wednesday Marina Markets.  Yes, we pay our kids and she is our hardest worker.  Love!

I hope the first week of July is going well for you, too!  I'd love to hear - drop me an email or check us out on the socials @beachharvest

Using the same pan, add a little more Nuttelex if needed and then add your Garlic, Ginger, Chilli & Sweet Chilli Sauce. Fry until fragrant and then add 2 Tablespoons of Curry Powder before pouring in all of the coconut milk.

Add the Cumin and Tumeric and lower the heat to a gentle simmer.
