Sweet Eats by DCF Presents: GIGI Coffee & Cupcakes

posted by in DCF Podcast

Sweet Eats by Dessert Comes First: GIGI Coffee and Cupcakes (HD) from DessertComes1st on Vimeo.

It’s the second Dessert Comes First podcast and I’m proud to feature Gigi Gaerlan in this episode, streaming now in HD.

The episode will stream in HD on this website but if you’d like to select from other viewing options, click here.

Gigi Gaerlan is the woman famous for those Custaroons and Matcha Cookies, still my green tea cookie of choice. She’s opened up a charming little café in Eastwood where I’m enchanted by her beautifully decorated cupcakes and Lemongrass Iced Tea. Listen in on our conversation, and watch out for the snippet where I talk about the unique relationship I have with these talented home bakers. I’m very proud of this podcast, it’s more dynamic and I enjoy listening to people talk about their craft.

Thanks very much to Gigi for letting me invade her space and to her kind (and very tall!) husband, Patrick, for documenting it all with his camera. Lastly, the DCF Podcasts wouldn’t be possible without the help of my camera guy extraordinaire, Bong Fernandez.

Enjoy, everyone!

  • Galing, Lori! Love this episode. I am a big fan of Gigi’s cupcakes. Friends have given them to me as gifts and I’ve ordered some to give to friends also. They’re so pretty and yummy! I’ve never visited the cafe, though, so I should make plans to do that soon. Keep the episodes coming :)

  • I do like this podcast more than the other one, Lori! I barely felt the time pass at all. Then again, isn’t that how it always is when we’re watching (or reading) about food? :-D

  • Yum! Must visit her shop soon!

    Lori, it’s great that you have this on VIMEO! YouTube and other streaming or video sites are blocked in our office. At least I can access your podcasts when I need to relax during breaks. ;-) it was really fun to watch, 10:45 minutes went by so fast!
