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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shepherd’s Pie

There’s nip in the air. Bangalore feels like Bangalore again FINALLY!! Woke up this morning and a sudden craving happened. NEED TO BAKE SHEPHERD’S PIE. Why? Is that even a question to ask? ————————————– Run to my kitchen immediately and work in progress. Sugar is getting to me these days. I still am in a […]

Vanilla Pound Cake

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 […]

Meringue 101 + Lemon Pavlova

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 […]
