Winter is here and so are the annual food festivals in the Delhi NCR region. And being a food freak, you are bound to throng one or the other festival pretty often. Winters provide the perfect opportunity to gorge on decadent dishes and heavy desserts rule the roost in such courses.
Working in Gurgaon has its own perks. For instance, I can visit the food festivals being organized at the magnificent Cyber Hub after a hard day’s work. And the dessert carnival surely provided a wonderful “opportunity” for me to binge on home made sweet delicacies from around the town.
Since I was already full with the heavy lunch I had, I decided to try only two stalls. I was lured by the prettiest desserts present at the Bubbly’s Delight and G’s Patisserie. So let me elaborate on these two further:
Bubbly’s Delight : Started by a retired school teacher by the name of Mrs. Bubbly and her daughter, this stall was worth every penny. Mrs. Bubbly is not using any sort of emulsifier, preservative or a stabilizer in her creations, so all the lovely brownies and cupcakes made by her are fresh, sometimes flourless, vegan and yummy to have. I tasted a chocolate cupcake with Swiss meringue butter. The cupcake had gone a bit hard but the Swiss meringue butter was drool worthy! Do try them out if you are putting up in South Delhi and Gurgaon.

G’s Patisserie: Based in Kalkaji and established by Ms. Gauri, the products displayed at this stall were worth every penny. I was particularly impressed by the quality of the desserts served here. Ms. Gauri uses imported sugar and cream with no additional preservatives. I happened to try her tantalizing masterpiece – the Red Velvet Cake which is by far the best I have ever had in Delhi NCR. It was far better than Elma’s, which is considered the crème de la crème of the Red Velvet cakes in the national capital. The red velvet served here was exceptionally soft – the sponge was light and airy and the cream was moderately sweet and delicate to have. There were little snowman made from imported sugar which were again not very sweet. I was able to finish off this three layered goodness with no heaviness in my belly. Kudos to this pastry chef for making desserts which are light on your pockets as well as stomach too!
Ms. Gauri’s creations can also be savoured by the lactose intolerant guys who usually keep themselves away from dairy based dishes. And she really believes that a dessert should be made in such a way that it can be eaten without any guilt or leftover.
