Macaroni & Cheese and Honey
Sarita Ekya loved Kraft Macaroni & Cheese growing up in Halifax. She and her husband Cesar enjoyed going to dinner at Peanut Butter & Co, a restaurant that specializes in, you guessed it, peanut butter sandwiches. That sparked an idea: what about opening a comfort food restaurant that serves macaroni and cheese. They experiemented with recipes, took a class on "How to Open a Restaurant" got a small business loan, used their personal savings and opened S'MAC (Sarita's Macaroni and Cheese) in New York.
Marina Marchese doesn't mind that there are sometimes close to 80,000 honeybees buzzing around her backyard. Marina's first experience with REAL live honeybees was when she was working as a product designer in China; there she met a family of beekeepers with 10 hives parked right in the middle of the road. Now she produces some of the finest honey available. There are more than 300 different varieties of honey here in the United States each with a unique flavor and color depending on the blossoms visited by the bee.
