February is here and youre likely looking for patisseries, sweet shops and bakeries. So, just see this list

Often, you'll find me rattling away about my lack of enthusiasm around sweets. And subsequently biting my tongue; literally in this case. Truth is, there's so much innovation, thought and creativity flowing through the pastry scene in India today that it is hard to stay away from the profound creations being churned out by patisseries across India. Besides, it's perhaps the one thing we, as food writers, get the most recommendation requests for. And with the month of love here, I thought why not just compile a whole list? Take a look.
