Summer is not my favourite season and I don’t look forward to Mumbai’s long, hot and humid days. This year I managed to escape the heat in the city for a few days by taking short trips to Pune and Ahmedabad where I demonstrated some of my recipes for groups of enthusiastic ladies, and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.
Recently my granddaughters Anya and Aria and their best friends decided to surprise me with their culinary abilities and what a great spread they created - it was enough to make me forget the bad weather!
