Dark Chocolate Trip

Apologies, apologies for keeping you’ll waiting this long. If you’re following me on social media, a lot has been happening. I’ve just finished 12 months of my pastry school and yessss I survived it!! I’ve been working part time in a bakery that makes me a vegetable at the end of my shift. And lastly, […]

Strawberry Muesli Cups

I keep ghosting myself from the blog. Not that I do it on purpose, but it’s been really hard adjusting to my new time-table this term. Unfortunately because I transferred my credits from Le Cordon Bleu, I don’t get to choose my time-table and that sucks like crazy as I’ve ended up having to go […]

Sablés

Butter. An ingredient a ‘true’ baker can’t live without. I say true because these days due to various dietary requirements, we use substitutes. I sometimes feel really sorry for the people who can’t eat it because butter just tends to make everything taste better. And when it comes to baking sable cookies, there is no […]

Baked Lemon Cheesecake

  Would you believe me if I told you I’m not a birthday-excited person. I don’t know what it is but I just don’t like the attention. I also believe you should feel special or mean something to someone everyday. BUT all that said, I need a birthday cake. Give me a birthday cake everyday […]

Poached Pear Tart

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

No-Bake Ferrero Rocher Teacake

Four years ago, I moved to a place which was quite unfamiliar to me. Being a person attached to home, it wasn’t the easiest move. It took me several months to get used to everything. Weather, travel, making new friends and most importantly food. I tried surviving on a dubba service for exactly a month […]

Fig Coffee Crumble Muffins

  I’ve never been too fond of coffee. Always been a milk baby. Even during exams, when I had to stay up late, while all my other friends were drinking mugs of caffeine, I would pop chocolates in my mouth. But as I grew older, I realized that I’ve got to start expanding my taste […]
