For Mademoiselle Rachel her first bite of a macaron represented a moment of luxury and as such, we strive to ensure that each of our customers experiences a taste of Paris with every bite. That's why we only work with likeminded companies.
Tell us a little about yourself, what's your business, and when did you start?
I sold my car to fund my dreams to create and sell bespoke designs at craft fairs in Norfolk in 2004 - taking a huge risk to leave my dream job in London. But it was one that was absolutely worth it. The business started properly with 3 people on my living room floor and has since grown and grown! We now have 2 retail outlets, a global website, are a major partner to notonthehightstreet.com and have a growing wholesale business spreading the Lisa Angel brand, products and philosophy further.
What do you consider your moment of luxury?
What’s your favourite flavour of macaron?
How do you serve / enjoy your macarons?
What do you love about your job?
What other small businesses do you love and support?
Oh gosh, there are so many incredible ones so I’ll try not to get carried away! We try to support small in everything we do, whether it’s eating out, groceries, activities, shopping or buying gifts - and we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by a whole host of amazing small businesses in Norfolk.
For eating out, we love Namaste, The Tipsy Vegan and Farmyard in Norwich, as well as The Goat Shed, which we recently discovered.
For chocolate, we love Emporium Artisanal Chocolate, for crumpets we think Crumpetorium are fantastic and for bao buns you can’t beat Xiam Little Kitchen.
For shopping, Berrys and Grey are a wonderful brand with gorgeous pieces, and at the weekend a trip to Cinema City is always a must.
What makes you stand out from other businesses?
Lisa we are so delighted to be stocking your gorgeous dried flower posies on Mademoiselle Macaron and making many a recipient smile. Whilst we'd first been set only to include the posies with our February subscription box we decided to keep them on the site - because, to quote Miley - you can buy yourself flowers...(and macarons!)
Merci & Bisous! Rachel x
