Weekdays can be cruel. Long, tedious, tiring, and repetitive. No wonder the meals get boring and predictable too. And yet, there are so many scrumptious little secrets that can help you quickly dish out new, unusual and delicious meals that do justice to how hard you work and painfully you travel (in Mumbai at-least . The Create Delicious Weekdays workshop will teach you versatile recipes and simple techniques that are a whole lot of fun but will also change the way you cook so that rustling up that weekday meal is a snap. And absolutely delicious too.

Real Bread – Baking and Beyond
Follow the smell of freshly baked bread and you will find yourself at the doorstep of endless possibilities. Fresh baked bread, right out of the oven is in itself a heart warming experience. But have you ever tried a slice of grilled French bread with melted chocolate, olive oil and flaky sea salt? Or delicious warm cornbread that works magic with ham or a jalapeno and garlic dip? We think its time you did!
At our ‘Real Bread’ workshop, we welcome you to discover breads. Learn to bake them but also find new ways of experiencing them.
1. Learn three traditional recipes with which you can bake amazing bread at home –
- Pain Ordinaire – A classic, crusty yet soft French style yeasted bread which lends itself to great variety from rolls to baguette and flatbreads
- Buttermilk cornbread – Traditional bread of the American Indians made with cornmeal, slightly sweet, known to work very well with spicy cuisines.
- Irish soda bread – The quintessential bread from Ireland – quick to put together, crusty and tender at the same time.
And because food must be fun as well as creative, at our workshop, we will help you add your own personal touch to each dish you make. Stay with the classic version we teach or turn it up a notch by experimenting with flavorings and shapes to create your own signature bread.
2. Wrap up with a fun tapas style party because in our kitchen, hardwork is always rewarded. Pair the breads you just baked yourself, with an assortment of cold cuts, cheeses, nuts, dips, roast fruits and vegetables, and join us to discover the fabulous combinations that breads can lend themselves to. And oh yes, do bring your wine along!!
The workshop will be run in our domestic kitchen, so anything we do together you can do at home. The group size will be kept small and intimate so we can all share, discuss, experiment and indulge in plenty of food talk. Lots of hands-on learning, kneading, shaping, tasting, drinking and plenty of the fruits of your labour to take home. Its our idea of a party. If its yours too, reserve your spot quickly.

I am not as impulsive as I used to be. Except when it comes to anything food. And yet, food is one space where I hate to be under any sort of pressure or scrutiny. I cook as I want, what I want, when I want. And I need it to turn out exactly as I want. There was a time when one little disappointment in the kitchen, and I could be in the dumps for days. Depressed, morose, losing my cooking mojo. Read more
I am notorious for being terrible with numbers, dates, anything really that requires one to have a memory or even concentration. This year I was determined to remember Atul’s birthday but since it was in the middle of the week, could’nt do much about it. We did however have a nice little bash over the weekend. Read more
