Oven Fresh

India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI - By Ekta Mar­waha

Fancy a slice of fresh home­made bread, straight out of the oven or want that per­fect choco­late pound cake for a friend’s birth­day? Bake it your­self. The Culi­nary and Cake Dec­o­rat­ing School ( CCDS) of­fers an in­ter­est­ing mix of cour­ses like ba­sic bak­ing, cake dec­o­ra­tion, fon­dant and sug­arpaste crafts, choco­late mak­ing and multi- cui­sine cook­ery classes.

CLASS­WORK The classes are di­vided into be­gin­ners, in­ter­me­di­ate, and ad­vance sec­tions. Th­ese work­shops last for two to three days, but make sure you re­ally are pas­sion­ate about food be­cause at CCDS ‘ food’ is a se­ri­ous mat­ter. They scru­ti­nise ap­pli­ca­tions be­fore they let you in­side their stun­ning kitchen that will make you feel like you are on the set of a food show.

THE MIX En­rol­ments are on first- come- first- serve ba­sis and you need not have any prior cook­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The classes are con­ducted by Chef Nag­pal who has 15 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in con­fec­tionary mak­ing, and has been con­duct­ing bak­ing classes at CCDS for the past three years now. Only 20 stu­dents are ac­cepted in each batch. Those who want to ad­vance to the pro­fes­sional level and learn the trade can also en­rol in the three­month cer­ti­fied diploma pro­gramme which spe­cialises in couture cakes or the five- day Wil­ton In­tense course.

HOME­WORK Prac­tice bakes per­fect cakes. A range of cake sup­plies are also avail­able at CCDS which is Wil­ton’s of­fi­cial dis­trib­u­tor in In­dia. Pick up quirky cake molds, funky dec­o­ra­tions, cookie cut­ters, and pre­mium qual­ity bak­ing in­gre­di­ents. COST Rs 3,000 on­wards ( for a ba­sic two day work­shop)
