A short tale about Missal Pav

Some days back i put out a post on Facebook on the origins of Missal Pav. What is Missal Pav you might wonder? This is how it looks like. This post was inspired by this wonderful Missal Pav that i had outside KEM hospital where i had gone to a workshop. I went bright and…

When in doubt, bake bread!

Last weekend was dedicated to learning something new. I always wanted to learn to make bread, had it in my yearly goals list for two years (which i, of course  procrastinated forever) and I learnt to make bread finally at the APB Cook Studio taught to us by the very effervescent Shekhar!
