Welcome Frens 🏝
Today is a really exciting day… the 🐙 🔪 Ecom site is now launched… live… up and running.
This has been in the works for months, but if you had told me 18 months ago I’d be launching an E-Commerce brand, most likely 🐙 would’ve given you the <smile & nod>, then moved on.
But life has a funny way of bringing unexpected opportunities (when you are open, flexible and aware). None of this would have happened without finding my tribe. The Anon online community started by BowTiedBull last year was a gamechanger and opened my eyes to the future: The creator economy, Ecommerce and decentralization.
From there I’ve connected with some amazing individuals who have helped get to this launching point.
-BowtiedBull, as previously mentioned, with great insights and the belief of “Equal Opportunity, Unequal Results”. (See BowTiedIsland website)
-BowTiedOpossum, whose expertise in Ecommerce, SEO, website builds (front and back end) has been invaluable. Dude is a total Ecom Chad, and you should be on his substack if you want to be in WiFi Money. His tutorials are gold.
-BowTiedOx and I connected early on. The most knowledgeable fitness resource out there I have ever come across. His substack is must-follow! We have some exciting Collabs in store! Fitness, Healthy Cooking & Delicious meals are not mutually exclusive and we will be proving that.
-and most recently BowTiedParrotFish.eth has been too kind with pre-launch feedback on the site, and great insights for helping optimize customer experience moving forward. The recently launched Substack is highly recommended!
Taking my vast experience and knowledge from High-End, Professional kitchens, the brand is a combination of 🐙 personal content and collaborating with other artisans that I have developed relationships with over many years.
Octopod Culinary delivers a growing product line of:
-Premium Coffee & Tea Offerings
This is just the starting point, with some of these categories Coming Soon.
Launch Product Highlights
To kickoff the launch, here are 2 products ready to order and get in on:

The Octopod “Sauces” Apron will keep you clean and looking stylish behind the stove 🔥 for Chad’s or Chadette’s, alike. <Equal Opportunity> 😉

*A Special Thanks to the Founding Substack Members! Your 🐙 “Few” knives are stateside, the engraving is in process and then will be sent out immediately.
And now… a sweet recipe to make you fall in love… with Fall! 🍂
Pear 🍐 Upside-Down Cake 🍰 :
Pears seem the be the red-headed stepchild of the Fall fruits. They are usually mushy or rock hard, bruise easily, and the number of cooks/chefs touting great recipes for pears is in the minority.
This is a shame since pears have an intoxicating, yet delicate, aroma and when eaten/prepared at the correct ripeness… are texturally luscious!
What follows is a great recipe that I hope you will revisit a few times during this Fall.
Compared to other desserts, this is lower sugar, no seed oils, and no crappy fillers or stabilizers.
Just pure pear heaven!
