BEACHBIRD - the new Californian coffee shop in Aix en Provence

<p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617109/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.43.14-1568652252.png" width="100%" /></div> <p>BEACHBIRD is a soon-to-be coffee shop in Aix-en-Provence, in the south of France, serving homemade pastries and drinks, fresh savory dishes, and specialty coffee. It is a hybrid of French and American flavors and textures with a relaxed California vibe. Ingredients will be seasonal, locally sourced, and organic as much possible.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/616721/food-1568404845.png" width="100%" /></p> <h2><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617110/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.43.27-1568652267.png" width="100%" /></h2> <p>The bird, that&#39;s me! Originally an inside joke, a nickname given to me by my one and only, I grew to love what a bird represents: Free to fly across borders, and make a home where he pleases, not unlike my own experience. BEACHBIRD is inspired by the different places I&#39;ve lived in, most of which a short distance from the beach: I grew up in California, studied in Barcelona and in Brazil, and am just settling in in Aix-en-Provence.</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FNFB_cHiRipc%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DNFB_cHiRipc&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FNFB_cHiRipc%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></div> </div> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617112/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.43.37-1568652278.png" width="100%" /></div> <p>Behind BEACHBIRD is a fierce redhead looking to bring a fresh twist on American sweets. I grew up in a family in the culinary business&nbsp;and since food has always been my priority.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/619223/babymag-1569485194.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>After a short (too long) detour in the FMCG world, I quit my corporate job to study French pastry at one of the finest culinary institutes, Ferrandi Paris, earning my CAP P&acirc;tissier diploma. I interned for inspiring female entrepreneurs: with B&eacute;r&eacute;nice Leconte at VG Patisserie, where I learned to bake delicious vegan pastries, and with Johanna Roques at Jojo&amp;Co, where creativity was bustling and new recipes were created on the weekly.&nbsp;Since, I&#39;ve been researching and&nbsp;testing my own recipes to bring you new, innovative dishes, desserts, and drinks.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617124/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_19.25.16-1568654729.png" width="100%" /></p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617113/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.43.47-1568652290.png" width="100%" /></div> <p>The coffee shop will&nbsp;be based in the historical center of Aix-en-Provence, in a quiet street, a bit off the beaten track.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/616971/map-1568637048.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>The actual shop location needs work, but there is a lot of potential, and that&#39;s where you come in!</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/616982/local-1568639258.png" width="100%" /></p>

Already a great start, but to make it <em>amazing</em>, we&#39;re going to need to clean it up, repaint, retile. We want an open kitchen for more transparency&nbsp;and an airy interior courtyard for you to soak in the sun.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617118/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_19.12.06-1568653944.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>Thanks to your donation, we&#39;ll be able to finance the glass partition in the kitchen, estimated at about 7&nbsp;000&euro;, which will really transform the space. You&#39;ll be able to spy on yours-truly baking away, and maybe pick up on a few baking secrets ;)</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617119/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.19.43-1568654132.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>If by chance we exceed our goal, the&nbsp;extra budget will finance kitchen equipment&nbsp;and interior decoration: stylish chairs and stools, the custom built countertop, and lighting.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/617758/Screenshot_2019-09-16_at_18.33.16-1568895530.png" width="100%" /></p>
