Spiced Florentines

Say the word ‘CHOCOLATE’ and I feel I’m in heaven. I don’t think there’s any other ingredient in my kitchen that I enjoy working with more. It’s the only thing that helps me destress. When I’m sad, angry or disturbed, I sometimes open the cupboard and munch on it. Don’t you love it too? If […]

Raspberry Doughnuts

Last blog posted was exactly a month ago. I apologise but it’s awfully difficult when you’re working out your butt in a kitchen for hours and then have to travel hours to get back home. But all this ends because I’m done with Le Cordon Bleu. It was an amazing learning experience but I can’t […]

Quiche Florentine

Being a pastry chef, you do need that break from sugar at times. My biggest fear entering this industry has been ending up with diabetes and hence as most of you’ll know, I don’t eat most of the things I bake. But as humans, we have our cravings and I must admit, all things buttery […]

Rum & Raisin Cruffins

  Growing up in a country that faces so much poverty, my mother would tell me that I couldn’t leave the table without finishing every morsel of food on my plate. She would narrate that story I’m sure most of you’ll have heard of how some children don’t even get one proper meal a day. […]

Why I want to become a pastry chef

It’s been almost a month at Le Cordon Bleu. I pinch myself everyday because this still seems so unreal but I’m giving it my everything and been pushing myself to be the best I can. I apologise for this long pending post. I literally don’t have a life anymore. My schedule is chaotic as it […]

Spiced Rum Almond Cake

Christmas is around the corner and I’m sure your kitchens must be smelling really good already. It’s been quite hard for me to bake since I recently lost my grandmother but I know she would be so happy about all that I’ve achieved these last couple of months, so well I’ve just been pushing myself […]

Foraging all the time!

It’s been months now that I decided to stop writing reviews on the blog. I still love eating and writing about food but it’s just a few more months till I go make my biggest dream come true so made this space all about baking and desserts, hoping it will help me eat less. (Failed […]

Dairy-free Whole Wheat Orange Cake

Living a dairy free life, especially for a dessertholic is a complete nightmare. It becomes very tough when you’re meeting friends at cafes or invited to parties because you’re not sure what ingredients go into those cakes and other sweet treats. Baking without butter and milk is not easy. You end up with such a […]

Chocolate 101 + Almond Rocks

This time, last year, I made a very important decision. The kind that I know is going to change my life forever. It was hard at first because I come from a different background (being media) and I was scared whether I was doing the right thing, but the minute I received my offer letter […]

Ham, Sweet Corn & Cheese Muffins

Some days you feel lazy. So lazy that you can’t even get yourself to go make lunch. The fact of having to make 3-4 dishes to keep your family happy scares you and then you think of this not-so-new concept anymore- BRUNCH.   It sounds fancy enough to all at home and the best part is […]
