“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
Passionate About Baking … is a recipe cum food blog about baking, cooking, photography, food trends, cuisines and cultures. It’s mainly about ‘Doing Food From Scratch’. The challenge lies greatly in trying to recreate or develop recipes with substitutes as baking is not widespread in India, and ingredients are sometimes hard to come by.A ‘locavore’, a ‘bake-a-holic’, an ‘absolut’ baker are synonymous with who I am, a reflection of the artisan baker and foodie in me. My mantra – ‘Bake From Scratch’. With the lack of international baking ingredients in the everyday Indian kitchen, join me in my culinary adventures as I try to conquer the oven!
I also write an online baking blog for the Times of India, one of India’s largest newspapers. You can find me here under the name The Rabid Baker. The name is quite reflective of who and what I’m all about.
Notes : rabid: (adj) marked by excessive enthusiasm for and intense devotion to a cause or idea I develop recipes too, on request for clients and for myself, which include baking using alternate grains like oats, buckwheat, amaranth etc. Food styling is something I absolutely adore. I use a Canon EOS 50D which I am still exploring.
My other interests include travel, nature and lifestyle photography. I love the vibrancy and character of everything Indian. That rules my soul!
