The culinary world of baked goodies, although delicious at all times, somehow manages to taste sweeter when cooked by the loving hands of Chef Pooja Dhingra – an Indian pastry chef, owner of Le15 Patisserie in Mumbai, and master of macarons. Backed with rigorous training at Le Cordon Bleu and her persistence of classical French baking techniques prior to setting up her business, Chef Dhingra skilfully brings style into sweets. This two-book author finds a way to bring in global flavours in all her deserts, owing to her extensive travels around the world.
For this episode of #TNLTasteOfTheWorld, Chef Pooja Dhingra brings this same global inspiration into the kitchen by cooking her favourite Brigadeiro – a sweet treat she learnt from her best friend in Brazil.
