Easy Vegan Chocolate Almond Cake (and a lesson in tolerance)

Harini is one of the first food bloggers I met in Mumbai, and we instantly became friends. It’s not very difficult to make friends with Harini–she’s a transparent soul, full of life and vigour–chatty, well-read, superlatively talented (she can stitch, embroider, crochet, style, photograph, is a phenomenal cook…) and most importantly, she is very kind.

I can barely get by a week without baking any. So far, I’ve made Pull-apart Pesto Rolls and Croissants as part of this fantastic festival, and this month, it […]

Croissants (and getting published in BBC Good Food)

It’s been breads, breads, and breads for a while now. Let me start with the highlights: 1. I did a feature for BBC Good Food India–the March issue carries six of my favorite bread recipes (focaccia, multigrain loaf, Nutella pull-apart rolls, dinner rolls, everyday white loaf, and pita) and a small article on the science […]
