Lakeland Pune

What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than admiring the lovely wares at the Lakeland Store?

The Tiny Taster (Roxanne) with Shahzad Variava (aka Dessert King of Master Chef fame) put together a lovely afternoon of baking and fun for food /baking enthusiasts in Pune.

I loved the afternoons I spent in the Lakeland store in Stratford Mall , London you can imagine how pleased I was to find out that Pune has a Lakeland Store too!

Its the perfect place to find gifts for friends & family that enjoy entertaining/baking/cooking! Its also just the place if you are looking to make your time in the kitchen a little more convenient and enjoyable....

They stock everything from beautiful Tagines, lots of baking pans , canning & preserving essentials....

Lots of lovely retro swing top bottles ...ideal for infusing olive oil and vinegar with herbs.....

 Silicon baking mats , pots and pans , an excellent specialty knife section , party supplies , cake pop machines and well I could go on..........but you will have to visit the store to find out how wonderful it is!

Most of my enamel pie dishes are from Lakeland and they have stood the test of time chips and no cracks despite having put them to plenty of use!

Lakeland is a one of UKs home shopping pioneers that offers an unrivaled collection of creative kitchenware that is sure to make your time in the kitchen lots of fun!

I had a lovely time learning how to frost cupcakes and cake pops from Dessert King Shahzad Variava!

And ofcourse was completely thrilled to meet and pose with Tiny :))

Do check the store out for lots of cooking/baking inspiration!

WTF Seaons Mall Pune

I had heard so much about WTF from friends in Bombay and friends in Pune who attended the launch and pre-launch tasting sessions that I was mighty excited about spending Friday night there with PuneFoodiez.....

The place has a very cool , youthful and relaxed vibe about it! I totally loved the way the space has been designed and put together ...

The indoor area has a lovely well stocked bar and cool graffiti is everywhere on the walls ...on the menu cards...

Mojito & Apple Martini
The drinks were all pretty neat I had a few sips of the cocktails friends at my table ordered....Each one was well executed .

The food menu is pretty limited , mostly bar/finger food ....nothing like a main course really....

So this is some of what we tried ...

Hummus with Pita

WTF French Fries

I was a little disappointed with the food ....because on a night out FOOD is the hero!

Bombil Thecha Roll

Chicken Naan Pizza
Chicken Kemma Pav
I did however enjoy a few things like the chicken keema pav , Hummus and the chilli chicken! A lot of the dishes that my friends really enjoyed I could not really taste because I dont eat red meat!

Overall its a nice place to catch up with friends over a few drinks .
I will defiantly go back for the lovely drinks and ambiance   :))) ...... I will also go try WTF at Phoenix Mall sometime soon and let you know how that was...
