Melbournians say that this is not the worst winter yet. That statement scares me because even some nights when it goes down to 2 and 3 degreees, I feel frozen. I blame Bangalore for spoiling me but I must admit that I’m learning to adjust really well. I’m going for a winter trek this weekend. […]
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 […]
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 […]
When you’re thinking cake, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Cheesecake….Mousse….cakes loaded with frosting. Those are cakes which give us a sugar high. They’re gorgeous to look at and taste just as good to eat but nothing beats the humble pound cake for me. It’s one of the first cake recipes I […]
It’s been a rough couple of days. I just lost someone really special to me. She played such a big role in my culinary life so it hasn’t been easy at all to get back to the kitchen. But they say, life goes on and my Nana has always been so supportive of everything I […]
First things first. I’ve just turned 22. I’ve published my first tiny cookbook. It’s something I’ve been wanting to write for quite sometime now. 2 months of research and recipe testing, all worth it in the end. It was so much fun working with the team at Better Butter and love how they encourage young […]
What could be more satisfying than Summer baking? When the heat gets to you, you tend to just lose your appetite and stick to salads and smoothies. But could you really resist this loaf of mine? It’s got bacon, sweet corn, cheese, rosemary and ZUCCHINI. Haha. Let me say that again. Yes, zucchini-the vegetable […]
4 years ago, I moved to a city which was quite unfamiliar to me. I knew it was going to be temporary but I had to survive on my own for 3 years and that wasn’t easy at all. Everything was new to me. Travelling in trains, managing living expenses and most importantly, food. I […]
I love messy cakes and I cannot lie. Celebrate this Valentine’s day by baking your loved ones this decadent strawberry cake that will impress them all. Even if you don’t have a date (like me) it’s alrighttt. You want to eat it all by yourself!
If you love Old Monk, you’re in big, big trouble. It’s not just a drink for die hard fans but more of an attachment. It has given me so many memories that I will cherish forever. So it was no surprise using it in my cake.
A warm, boozy cake perfect for this weather. Do try it out!
