‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach is an age old saying and I think it’s true, feed anyone good food and they are happy. For me cooking is not only a hobby but also a passion and a profession. What could be a better combination as a table is a place to gather, be festive and celebrate, for me baking is to give and to be a reason for other’s joy’ shares young aspiring pastry chef Archana Mehra a 3rd Year Culinary Arts student from IHM – Aurangabad.
