Know Me

Helloo!

I am Shruti Agrawal . I am from Kathmandu, Nepal but I have been staying in Delhi from past 3 years. I have done my MBA in Marketing from Amity Universtiy, Noida.

Well, I do not hold any fromal degree in Cooking or Baking. However I have done a Certified Workshop with Chef Gaurav Wadhwa(Head Chef Bakery, TAJ) …. owner of a Confectionary “THEOS” in Noida. 

I am a foodie and I love cooking and trying new recipes myself.Its not my recent or new found love for cooking and baking. As a kid, I would go to the kitchen and would ask mom to teach me how she makes such delicious dishes. She is an angel. She since very then, encouraged me and taught me all she knew. “She has been my true inspiration”. She is a way better cook than I am and my Mom has a major role to play in as much i know today !!!

I have loved cooking for my family and friends ever since. But i never thought about writing my own blog or sharing my recipes.By each passing day.. my passion for cooking heightened and it really made me happy. This is when, i decided i should start my Blog and trust me I felt amazing writing my first post. I have always maintained a personal diary, and wrote my each day onto it. When i decided on writing my blog….. the first thing i had to decide was the name, well because of my love for maintaining personal diaries…. the only name that striked me for my blog was “Cooking Diary”. I didnt even give it a second thought :P.  It was AMAZING!

Cooking is an ART! Be as Creative as you can ! 🙂

I truly believe that cooking is an art and you dont need to be perfect at it. You can have your own version of everything and anything you make. I always like to make my version of the recipe if i am adapting it from somewhere. All you need to do is explore. “Never be afraid of trying something new in your kitchen”

I love Italian and Chinese food. Pasta’s are my favourite. I can have them any time of the day. I do have a sweet tooth. However, i don’t enjoy the Indian sweets  as much. I love muffins, doughnuts, cakes, pastries, cupcakes………. and the list continues 😛 😉 I just cant get enough of them. As much as i enjoy eating them…I enjoy making them tooo….

Just like any little girl….I love Strawberries.. Its my favorite fruit. I wish fresh strawberries were available throughout the year 😦 … But when they are not available i use the flavor or the extract. When they are available i use them in almost everything i make…lol. I enjoy baking very much. I will be posting a lot of baking dishes… BAKING just makes me super happieee 😀

SISTERS ARE THE BESTEST FRIEND ONE CAN HAVE!!

She is the one who makes me smilee…. My budddy…My inspiration…My support system… I call her “MEOW”… The cutest lil meow…..

I am a movie buff….I love watching Bollywood Movies….”HOllywood MOvies “? Nah, i dont watch them….. I love eating out…. Dominoz…Italian at Theos…. Big Chills Cafe…. Doughnuts at Dunkinns…. All of them… 🙂

Desserts attract me the most…So i love making them…. I love the bakery shop..Right from pastries… to doughnuts….to muffins…to chocolates…all of them.

I dont like South Indian so much !!

I love Cofffeeee (Cold or Hot- Both)

Jalebiiii my favourite…. I always keep craving for it 😀

Thank You for Reading!

Shruti XOXO

      • I could probably be considered a “kid these da&#;s8221y, and I beat it. I figured out that I had to spindash a foot or two away from the boss right when it lands on the ground. It took a hell of a lot of hits to beat, though.
