A third set of grandparents and a recipe for fruitcake

As grandmothers go, she fit the bill perfectly. Her softly starched, block printed or sheer woven Chanderi sarees would whisper as she walked slowly around the house, depending heavily on her walking stick, her arthritic feet protesting every step. The four thin bangles around her wrist had thinned with age and hung loosely over her […]

I don’t like a cake (or anything edible, for that matter) that does not allow a natural ingredient […]

I did a course in Bakery and Confectionery. Did I tell you that? Long ago. Two years. Of which, we did only breads one whole year. I was still in college; this college had a small (ish) albeit full-scale University-allied course in Culinary Craft and Bakery & Confectionery. Under the Arts discipline, you could choose […]
