“It’s been 25 years since Oprah’s favorite things started,” Oprah Winfrey said in her annual list announcement. “Can you all believe it?” It started out as a way for me to share joy and gratitude with the people who matter most, including yourself. “

Similar to last year’s list, Oprah shed light on emerging companies. For example, Oprah’s obsession with The Fab Fete’s white corn and truffle soufflé secured a place for Houston-based chef Elizabeth Swift Copeland on Oprah’s 2021 favorite things list. , orders for soufflés priced at $ 112 have increased.

“We are very grateful for everyone’s orders and appreciate all of the wonderful messages we have received,” The Fab Fete wrote in a Facebook post. “Never in our wildest dreams did we think that within a year of the start of the Fab Fete, we would be here.”

The post then recognized the dedication it took for the company to get to where it is today.

“Shipping soufflés across the United States took 30 years,” the post read. “Although it might sound like it, we didn’t get here overnight. Much hard work has gone into every detail of the Fab Fete. From website design, to determining how to ship a frozen product, to designing the packaging and logistics to get the soufflés to your doorstep. We did it.”

Sales of the Fab Fete weren’t the only ones to increase after receiving Oprah’s seal of approval this holiday season. Mike Bradford, of Pflugerville, tried to keep up with the demand as his one-of-a-kind plush waffle maker — Wonderffele — caught people’s attention.

For those who love waffles, the iron allows them not only to create Belgian waffles, but also to stuff them with whatever they want. It also has a built-in tool that transfers the stuffed waffle to a plate after baking for about 10 minutes. The idea behind Bradford’s design came while he was on the go during his lunch break and saw someone eating chicken and waffles at a restaurant in downtown Austin. That’s when the software developer started thinking about what it would take to develop their own concept of stuffed waffles to go.

“The idea is that it allows you to eat [a waffle] like a sandwich so you can grab it on the go, or you can put all kinds of fun things in it that you wouldn’t normally do on a normal waffle, ”Bradford said in an interview with local media. “It’s more like a sandwich maker. Some people even call it as a panini press, so it’s just a new way of thinking about a waffle and being able to enjoy a waffle.
