A Little About Me

A blog is born when a hobby changes to passion, where experimenting leads to learnings, and where a ‘no interest in entering kitchen‘ converts to a baker/cook. Hi, I am Noopur Kawathekar Joshi and I welcome you to my kitchen! 

Though I have a background as a computer engineer and an MBA with 9+ years of working in IT industry,  I’ve found a passion towards baking over the last few years. It calms me down and keeps me distracted off the life’s troubles. It also gives me an immense pleasure to feed friends and family a creation of mine.

Baking is a science. The geek in me loves to understand what works, why it works and how it works. This blog is an attempt to catalogue all my experiments, learnings, recipes. I am also fascinated by the world of food photography and I am trying to incorporate what I learn into my pictures. Lot to learn 🙂

I do want to thank my various guinea pigs over the last few years – parents, husband, siblings, friends… Your lovely comments and encouragements inspire me to learn more and cook better 🙂

Best learning – ‘Cook with a generous dollop of love – love of food and love for people you are serving it to’.

  2. Hi..just visited your blog. It is very helpful in understanding the science behind baking and the reason for using various ingredients.

    Can you also share a post regarding cake decoration …with or without use of fondants. About cake decoration and use of different tools that are required. I feel apart of baking good cakes, it is equally important to present them well.

    • Thankyou for stopping by and sharing your lovely comments. 🙂
      Will definitely try posting more about cake decorating, stay tuned! You can follow my Facebook and Instagram pages for all updates.
