My journey into the world of baking

began practically at birth, surrounded by the sweet aromas wafting from the kitchens of my grandmothers, mother, and aunt. In Class 11, I took my first step into the kitchen, baking cakes for special occasions, albeit with a rocky start – literally, as my first cake turned into an inedible rock!

Despite the initial hiccup,

baking remained my hobby. It wasn’t until I attended cooking classes by Nita Mehta that I found my true calling. Fueled by a desire to turn my passion into a career, I pursued a Diploma in Baking and Patisserie, from International Institute of Culinary Arts, New Delhi supported by my understanding parents.

After an intense 4-month

Industrial Training with The Oberoi Group, I emerged stronger, armed with technical knowledge and a deep passion for baking. I spent a year and a half as a full-time employee, honing my skills in the demanding culinary battlefield.

Driven by a dream to own a business,

I founded my bakery ‘The Country Bakester’ (initially called It’s Bake_Licious) and, now, I introduce you to Bakester Mind, my creative space for sharing stories, knowledge, and the love of baking. As a self-identified “Bakester,” (term used for a female Baker) I invite you to dive into my mind, explore delicious recipes without the use of artificial preservatives, and join me on this delectable journey.
