This time of the year is full of pretty walk trails. I love my evening walks with #sagetales. Both of us love meeting people and dogs, the walk is unhurried and the light is magical. Half a day away from him and I'm missing him like crazy.

I did a 3 day juice cleanse last week. Yes you heard me right. Even though I was scared at the thought at first, I can't even tell you how easy it was. A cleanse is a restricted calorie liquid based diet. Usually aimed at giving your digestive system a much needed break. It helps make you feel lighter, less sluggish and helps in shedding a few kilos if you're prepping for a special occasion.

N cold pressed juices in hyderabad is one of the latest entrants in the cold pressed juice scene. They have detoxes for 1 or 3 days.
The juices come neatly packed and are in 400 ml bottles instead of the regular 200-250 ml variants available making it very filling. The ingredients used ranging from bottle gourd to fennel, apples to pomegranate, seeds, nuts and dried fruit are on the pack. All bottles come with the time stamp and have nutritional information printed at the back to make for easy reference.
The juices are refreshing with no mix of flavours, sweet, tangy and sometimes bitter. The 2 pm ones are bitter as hell and I found myself standing over the sink to be able to finish them.
If you're inclined to do three days, let me tell you, day 1 is a breeze due to the novelty. Day 2 I found is the toughest because you're committed and can't turn back. Day 3 is done even before you can think about it. So hang in there and see the results.
I've been struggling to see the scale move despite a regular workout and restrictive calorie diet. So I'm happy that the cleanse helped me Shed 3 kilos and a 2 inch loss around my tummy.

A flaky pie crust filled with a mix of spinach, ricotta, caramelised onion and cheddar cheese. One of the four recipes we did in today's Pies and Tarts Workshop at my studio.

This ( accidentally) vegan banana cake turned out so good, that I posted the recipe on my blog in less than a day after I made it.
This cake has bananas, ragi, oats, wheat flour, jaggery and coconut milk. It's not overtly sweet and yet has deep flavours and a beautiful soft texture.

Couple of 'items' such as moru kootan and paal payasam are missing from this picture but this was our lunch today for Avani avittam. Truly blessed to be part of a family that makes it possible to part take of celebrations I otherwise would know nothing of.

Trying my hand at sourdough baking. This loaf came out nice and soft with a lovely crust but a little too sour for my taste. Topped it with olive oil, some sauteed veggies, fresh basil and mozarella and toasted it for a few minutes.

Caught this group of kids taking some cool pictures inside the Amer fort at Jaipur. The sweltering heat notwithstanding, Jaipur is such a clean, green and well kept city.

Here's a cake I decorated in a class I attended yesterday. Sharp edges of whipped cream and beautiful pastel rosettes on top. Such a beautiful cake tho thoroughly inedible.
Inedible because of the unhygienic way the class was conducted and therefore the way this cake was handled.
Inedible because of the bitter after taste the session left in my mouth with the rude high handedness of the instructor with students who were not able to follow certain instructions​. Not everyone with superlative skill is cut out to be a teacher. If you don't have the grace or patience to deal with questions and answer them sincerely, do not teach. If you don't know how to handle adults in your class, don't teach.
In ten years of teaching, I admit I'm demanding and exacting. We are human and sometimes do get irritated, but address it if it hampers the rest of the class. Simply picking on a person with insults won't get you far.
This was a lesson to reinforce what I always felt. Be respectful of the people who trust you and your skill and come to you to learn. You have already been put on higher ground because of their faith. Do your damnedest​ best to give them what they signed up for.
End of story.

July whizzed by. Mostly in a haze. Except that it was my birthday month, it was a pretty bad month and I'm glad to see it gone.
On a side note, how is it already August? What are your plans for the month?

Two layers of almond Jaconde, layers of creme patiserie and strawberry salsa, dusted with confectioner's sugar.
I attended a dessert making demo at the newly opened test kitchen a few days ago. It was interesting to be on the other side of the table.

Can I interest you in my Monday morning?

Just completed another 8 day baking course with a fun batch. This batch did everything - talk, talk some more, yell, got yelled at, laugh, did I mention talk? And yes learnt along the way. The only time #sagetales was off the leash from beginning to the end because I had to literally haul them back to the baking tables from petting and fussing over him.

That's l-r Prashant the iitian, Aparna from Dubai, pranav who's about to begin work at Amazon and Archana the designer.
