Baking Masterclass at Courtyard by Marriott

What is more pleasurable? The joy of seeing someone biting into a slice of cake or the joy in making it?
The Baker's Basic masterclass  at Momo Café gave me an opportunity to experience both.  Here's a photo tour of the fun morning at Courtyard by Marriott, Bangalore. I have also included the recipes from the masterclass... 


Baker's Basic is an initiative by Courtyard by Marriott to impart baking skills to the guests...



The masterclass was conducted by Pastry Chef Rahul Kumar...


Chef Rahul talked about one of my favorite baking ingredients, chocolate. The percentage of cocoa determines how strong chocolate is.


At 44% cocoa, this one was more to my liking...


A welcome sweet made with a combination of dark and white chocolate... 


Some essential reading on the subject...


The welcome drink, Ferrero Rocher shake was delicious...


I did love connecting with fellow bloggers. Attired like a chef, we were all excited to hit the kitchen..


Some handy tools...


After some more selfie fun, we headed to the kitchen for some actual baking...


The kitchen was state of the art...


As soon as we entered, a pretty lady chef welcomed us with the most amazing red velvet...



Our first bake was Focaccia bread, an Italian bread with olive oil and herbs...

Focaccia bread turned out really good...


Here's the recipe...


Next we made New York Cheese Cake...

After plating...



Here's the recipe...

Finally the Tiramisu...

Here's the recipe...

The Croissants from the bakery were meltingly soft in my mouth...

After the baking experience, we were served one lavish lunch. Here are some of the stuff I liked...

Prawn salad...


Grilled pepper salad...



Five spice fish...


Green pea chaat...


Tenderloin with beans and tomato salad...


Watermelon with feta salad...


Tawa Machhi...


A variety of mezze dips...


Pumpkin and Peanut Quiche...



Cabbage stuffed with risotto roll...



Chicken Lasagne...


Honey garlic roasted chicken...


Tandoori Aloo...



Ice tea - Berry blast, Ginger, Hibiscus, Kiwi and Cinnamon...


  Pineapple Frangipane...



Strawberry Pastry...


Overall it was great fun. I learned a few new tips. The next Baker's Basic session is on 30th April. Leaving you with the beautiful smile of one of the participants...
