Baker Review: BakeBox.in, Delhi – 4/5 Stars

BakeBox is an exciting new concept. There are several bakers in the city who are fantastic but they do not have a Bakery. BakeBox brings the bakes and goodies from these bakers, straight to your house.

 

BakeBox delivers on the same day and what they deliver is 100% fresh and made either the same day or the night before.

This concept was started by Jennifer Duthie. They have a “baker of the month” and that baker compiles a new BakeBox on a designated day each month. This BakeBox is delivered fresh to foodies all over Delhi and Gurgaon.

Since BakeBox was launched in August 2012, they have only been growing. They have been covered by NDTV, Indian Express, Cosmopolitan, Femina, New Woman, Mint, etc. They charge Rs. 850/- for a BakeBox and it can be Home Delivered for the same price.

BakeBox has some amazing cakes, muffins and cookies. In a recent BakeBox they sent over some pita and hummus too, which was a refreshing change.

I look forward to this fresh box of sin delivered to my doorstep every month.

Thanks

NYC Cafe Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi (NH 8, Near IGI Airport, Mahipalpur, Delhi) – 4/5 Stars

New York Cafe at Radisson Blu Plaza in Mahipalpur was the perfect lazy Sunday Brunch experience for me. The brunch starts at 12:30 pm and goes on until 3:00 pm, which is perfect for me and my friends because we love having a relaxed conversation over good food.

We are taken around the place by the Manager at New York Cafe. It really was a museum of food. At first I was quite overwhelmed by the choices but shortly the foodie in me took over and I got to work.

Gin based cocktails go really well with paneer pakoras and politics related conversations. Gazpacho followed after the pakoras and acted as the perfect palette cleanser. Chicken Liver Gateaux and white wine were delightful together.

We were served a lot of different kind of cheeses. My favourite was Edam. You have to give blue cheese a shot but remember only to have a minuscule bite with your cracker. It can be too strong for some people.

Our individual portions of Prawn Cocktail were served to us at the table with Cilantro and young onions. The prawn was the best I have had in a very long time. IN fact I also went ahead and had the grilled prawns and they were sublime as well – 5/5.

The Hummus with extra olive oil and freshly made pita bread was a delight too. The Mezze was beautifully presented and tasted really good – a big thumbs up.

There were a million things to try on the day and most of them were great to look and taste. The desserts were the best course of the entire buffet. Firstly the spread was amazing. From Rajbhog to pannacota, from sugar free kalakand to pumpkin pie, it was a delight. All of the desserts were top of the line and special recommendations will be the Rajbhog and the pumpkin pie. There was also a chocolate fountain to keep the kids and the kids inside adults interested.

Overall the NYC cafe brunch is a must try with the combination of a lavish spread, fantastic dishes and exemplary service. The price is quite reasonable for the variety you get – give it a try.
