What: Pear and walnut cake by Reshma and Kapil Sanghi, pick up from Kitab Khana at Fort or Mehrina building, Malabar Hill, call 22844242 to order, Rs 900 for a nine inch cake, one day notice required.
Why: We discovered this elegant, addictive cake at a family celebration (happy birthday, mum!), sweetened with pear-studded sponge, iced with walnuts and golden glaze. Baked by the same guys who run the cafe at Kitab Khana, it is rarely spotted on the shelf and must be special ordered. They do a mean fruit cake, chocolate mud pie and other flavours as well.
When: Perfect for a party or tea at home. Just play it by (p)ear.
Why: This winter, Argentinean photographer Irina Werning brings her remarkable past-future project to India, where she works with old portrait photos and recreates moments with astonishing precision, using the same subject and replicating background, colours and even wardrobe to take an updated photo. The old and recent pictures she publishes side by side. And now, she’s looking for subjects! The only catch is that Irina’s working out of Delhi, but it’s totally worth the trip! Learn more here.
When: Photo shoots from November 18 to December 10, open for entries now.
