Purple Foodie Returns For Baking Classes
Wednesday, 29 October 2014 11:01

If your experiments in the kitchen have left you feeling a little blue lately, lighten up for Purple will be here soon.

Our taste buds’ favourite food blogger Purple Foodie (Shaheen Peerbhai) who had moved to Paris from Mumbai and is now living in London, is returning to Mumbai to run a series of gourmet baking classes just for you! Return of the prodigal sundae?

Shaheen, who is currently working with a Japanese-French Patisserie in London, has learned a whole bunch of new recipes since her last visit to Mumbai. “There are a host of breads that I've been studying lately, some recipes from my time working in Paris, some off the Friday Lunches menu and some from pastry chef friends like the Dutch Cheese biscuits.”

All of these dishes are incorporated into the baking classes that she will host at Eighth, starting November 21. The four classes (you can sign up for as many as you like) are divided into teatime bakes, sweet bakes, savoury bakes and homemade breads. See details here.

All rise!

Getting there: To register email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with the subject ‘Classes  NOV 2014’.  Classes (with limited seats) will be held at Eighth Studio, flat no 4, 1st Floor, Mudheshwari  Building, YMCA road (off Carter road) Bandra (W), Rs. 4,000 per class to learn all five recipes and bring the bakes back with you. You can also sign up for all four classes for Rs. 15,000.

Two New Dessert Shops

The Cupcake Factory, Bandra

Bakers, get a new muse bouche. Please.

In the midst of an ebbing cupcake tide, the Cup Cake Factory launches, sharing only space, not owners, with Bandra’s institutional Mac Craig bakery. We went yesterday evening to try the offerings, a slight ennui lurking around our taste buds even before we got there.

The cupcake options are pretty standard - Oreo, Red Velvet, Mocha, Vanilla Chocochip, Peanut Butter, Strawberry, Nutella, Lemon and Caramel. To be fair, the cake didn’t give us much to complain about – it was soft and far from dry considering it was the end of the day. Their top hats of frosting though, were inconsistent across cupcakes, with some flavours like the caramel and Nutella tasting artificially sweet and slightly grainy. The headgear on the red velvet and mocha, though, were just fine. Add brownie points for cute packaging and cuter business cards.

Monday, 27 October 2014 10:09


With a cheese making business named after the Greek word for freedom (Eleftheria), it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Mausam Jotwani has always wanted to break brie.

Break brie from a corporate 9-to-godknowswhen job, and slip into a life that allows her to turn organic cow’s milk into cheese for you.

Review: Brewery at The White Owl
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 10:19


Despite the many licensing issues required to start a micro brewery in Mumbai, the folks at The White Owl didn’t lose hoot…er heart.

After over a year of opening the restaurant and bar at Lower Parel, the brewery finally got a license, and is now serving their own craft beers.  The second functional brewery bar in the city after The Barking Deer, The White Owl offers four beer varieties and some small plates to go with it.

At Mumbai's First Krispy Kreme
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 09:38

Homer would be happy, we thought, watching a ton of people scarf down a ton of donuts at the city's first Krispy Kreme in Powai. Two more outposts of the international donut chain to follow in Bandra and Juhu. An epic called Horde-yssey? We think so. 

Dough, Re, Me Fat So...

When we visited last evening, the store ( that replaced Gloria Jeans in Hiranandani Gardens) was sprinkled with a bunch of teenagers eager to try out the doughnuts and catch up on gossip, a few stags who sat by the all glass pane and some couples that gazed at the see through kitchen in between slurps of coffee.
