Naqiyah – The Beginning – Indian Recipes From My Home
Flavourful filled Indian Cuisine with a Modern Twist!!
“As human beings, we are hard-wired for connection. Gathering around a table feeds that need. Its a place where bonds are reaffirmed and where breaking bread actually breaks down barriers. The centrepiece of our table should be the space we’ve created to gather together to connect and transform us. And it so happens that the most lasting human relationships are formed around the table, rooted by love. Today, I welcome you to gather around my table. A table that displays a life of abundance, celebration and an insatiable drive for perfection.”

Just Teddy – Petals from Paris – Fine Boulangerie & Pâtisserie
Lovingly shared on the pages of this book are recipes which are of great sentimental value to this family from the recipe which was the start of it all, Unpretentious Coloured Cupcakes and the delectable Chocolate Ganache Tart – which was on Just Teddy’s first counter at the food market located at 1 Fox – to a magnificent variation on a basic Macaron recipe for Ispahan and Persian Love Cake. You will find beauty in even the simplest recipe for Buttermilk Scones and Madeleines which are as close to sanctification of baked goods as you will get!
Just Teddy – Petals from Paris will turn even the most reluctant bakers among us into master bakers (okay that may be a small exaggeration, but you get the idea – you will want to bake). The story told on these pages will inspire the entrepreneur within who may be waiting for that final push to follow your dream.
