About Me

October 2014

Hi! My name is Pratiksha Kabre and I am a couch potato. 

I am lackadaisical, but only physically so. More often than not, you'll find me lost in thought and I'm mostly thinking about food. Mr. Brain is always busy dreaming up recipe ideas and knock-your-socks-off flavour combinations! Now now, if only there was a way I could turn these ideas into reality without actually putting in any physical effort! 

Having said that, there are in fact days when I feel inspired and am highly motivated to take on a good challenge. On days like those is when a post like this one happens.

Baking is a passion. You give me basic ingredients and an oven, and there is nothing that could make me happier. I fell in love with baking when I saw Nigella Lawson bake her Triple Chocolate Brownies; that was my first baking experiment and I haven't looked back since then.  I'm an impulsive baker and dislike sticking to a certain drill. Routine is boring and I'd rather being doing something different, but connected, every day than sit at a desk and work in front of a computer. I'm an avid reader and am currently enjoying and admiring Amitav Ghosh and Arundhati Roy.

I'm pursuing a law degree and am now in the final year. Cheers to being a lawyer by June 2015! BUT! Being a Pastry Chef, I believe, is my true calling. Studying at Le Crodon Bleu is my dream and I have a very strong desire to fulfill it in the near future. 

I started writing this blog with the intention of honing my skill and exploring and experimenting with this talent further. I sadly need quite a bit of self motivation to get a move on. However, it's time to pull up my socks and work towards fulfilling my dream. 

Let me tag you along on this baking adventure and we'll see where it takes us. For those who've been here since the beginning, Thank You for sticking around and being patient. For those who've just arrived, Hello there! Hope you accompany me on this culinary journey!
