My new found interest is to make fondant cakes. God it opens great doors, windows for creativity. I haven’t still mastered the technique. I’m a youtube learner, sometime spending long time jumping from one video to another…anyhow all I can is it is SO much fun. Moreover when it come for delivering the cakes, fondant cakes are more stable and gives a striking appearance.
Being a active member of the cooking club at work I have so far got to learn very interesting recipes from very many cuisines. Monthly one evening, we all food lovers gather together to cook, eat and goof around in a well equipped cooking school. I always look forward in learning something new every month….and guess what this month I’m organising the Indian theme. There will be 25 participants.
It’s not the beginning of a new chapter; this is the beginning of a new book! That is how I usually start my new year. Change is my daily bread; everyday has been filled with surprises. Though it’s challenging to start from point zero it so far has come with bags full of passion, excitement, profoundness and has also opened the window for much wider channels. Adding dash of salt and pepper I have enjoyed so far.
Hello folks! I’m back to Europe, more precisely in the country of chocolate, waffles, french fries – Belgium as post doctoral researcher, after a wonderful long break in India. Under extreme threats and social pressure I’m doing this blog post (read happiness included). Hopefully soon I will regain my enthusiasm for doing regular post, which I honestly want to. Belgium so far has been good, great chocolates, french fries with mayannoise (as a meal along with meat or veggies? hello excuse me? that’s what i felt for the first time), now I’m getting accustomedto it, rather liking it. But still would prefer on the rainy day with salt and pepper to nibble away! Very good dairy products straight from farm, fantastic oranges, I’m totally in love these fresh bright little ones……and I’m yet to explore others. Though I know we get pretty good beer’s here…. its never my territory! Aah and thanks to institutes I work, for being situated away from the city it gives me a chance to be in picturesque cities. Will promise to post some pictures!
Anyhow people, this is a very basic post to say we are alive. Made this cookies to give me some energy during tea time at work, this is third time i’m doing this cookies, totally chocolatey! Go for it, trust me it can be addictive!! To all those people who kept this space alive and running, a huge thanks. I have something very special for all my blog readers from India, so tune in for more in the coming weeks! First food pictures from Belgium, with no proper prop and setting, excuse the harsh lightings and deep shadows.
Rare are those recipes when an unexpected combination turns out surprising well. This dark rosy kisses is an outcome after spending hours in flea market and organic shop looting alluring brown tableware and some organic rose buds. After a series of imagination all I dreamt was the combination of brown and pink. Cherry on top was when my colleague gave me organic honey, creative instincts worked magic thus these dark rosy kisses were created.
The recipe is the combination of dark chocolate, honey, rosewater and dry rose buds. Honey gives these kisses a dense and moist feel. Rosewater in the desserts and sweets are more of an acquired taste for those tasting it for the first time; let me warn you since you might feel them like a scented dessert! Give it an elegant touch by serving the individual pieces on rose petals with a little ribbon tied, an eye appealing treat!
Ok! Now this post is my first guest post for Sohini’s blog Cassia Bark, dancing feet. I have known Sohini from our initial days of blogging; her sweet and encouraging comments drove me to her blog where I felt warmth through her words. Very soon we befriended each other through facebook and now no looking back. I’m a great admirer of her sugar art for cakes and cupcakes, different versions of beautiful princess cake and her eastern food makes me drool. Not forgetting to mention the pictures of her little adorable edible princess, which wants me to her a big bite, but I go aww! So people do hop over to Cassia Bark for interesting recipe and for the recipe of dark rosy kisses!!
