If you think I’m obsessed with food and cooking, you haven’t seen anything yet until you’ve met some of my friends. I feel lucky because I have more than a few of them who share my passion for food, for experimenting, for blogging about it and for generally being a glut about it.
So when Anand and I decided that we must meet one weekend and dedicate it to some serious baking, plans were afoot to make it happen. And soon. Last weekend Anand landed in Goa all set to launch our Bakestravaganza.
We had a jam-packed schedule planned and our list of to-dos was an ambitious one.
– Tiramisu, the David Lebovitz way, except we’d make the lady fingers ourselves. From scratch.
– Bread, a la Anand (a 50% whole wheat bread he’s mastered over a year)
– Quiche Lorraine, as seen on Masterchef a few weeks ago
– Vanilla essence from scratch
You didn’t think this was just another update, did you? You didn’t just assume I would spare you every inane detail that transpired, did you? Because of course I have long stories to tell. And recipes to share. And pictures to flaunt.
The only story that remains to be told is of the Tiramisu and the Quiche Lorraine. I’ll get to it in the weekend worry not. But until then ponder over the thought of making your own bread. It will change your life and you’ll be happy you did.
