Ten-Second Takeaway

London-based chef, Shaheen Peerbhai aka Purple Foodie is making a pit stop in India for her bi-annual baking classes. This time Bangalore is on her radar too, along with Delhi and Mumbai.

A Class Apart


If you’re the kind of foodie who spends many an hour browsing through food blogs, you might already be a fan of Purple Foodie. A blog started by Le Cordon Bleu and Alain Ducasse Education-trained {her list of credentials are endless} London-based pastry chef, Shaheen Peerbhai {also one of the earliest food bloggers in the country}, this is where you’ll get to drool over her recipes for baked delights as well as dishes she has tried during her travels. The ace baker also hosts much sought-after classes in Mumbai {her hometown}, occasionally. This time around, she will also be making way to Delhi and Bangalore {for the first time!} with a bunch of classes. And no, this is not your run-of-the-mill regular cupcakes or muffin-making sessions. Shaheen will be bringing some of her serious French pastry training cred to the table and will help you ace extravagant cakes, bakes and breads.

Baking 101


Shaheen’s first-ever class here will have four, intense demo-based sessions over two days, covering tea-time treats, creative pastries, sweet bakes, breads and savouries. Go on and try your hand at tea time bakes like Sticky Toffee Pudding and Toasted Black Sesame Chiffon Cake or savouries like Goat Cheese and Caramelised Onion Tart. Sign up for the sweet bakes session if you’re hoping to master classic recipes like Lemon & Meringue Tart and Classic Creme Brulee. Want something more experimental? The creative pastries class might fit the bill with layered goodies like Noisette {a mix of Shaheen’s favourite Cordon Bleu recipes and French baker, Pierre Herme’s Plaisir Sucre} and Le Snickers — a posh version of the chocolate}.
