This is the first time I tried anything and now nothing can stop me! :) Jalapeno Pinwheel was super delicious, soft masala bread with red jalapeno pepper stuffed in the center. One could feel the freshness, aroma of spices. Oh, the taste still lingers in my mouth!
Marble Cake Slice was a little piece of joy with right amount of balanced sweetness. Loved it!
Chocolates? Oh...Sorry! Finished! I ate them in an hour! :P Best part was the crunch of roasted almond and the silkiness of chocolate blended well. First bite and uncontrollable. American Fudge was equally tempting and melt in mouth. But my vote goes to roasted almond. Thank you Namrataa, wishing you all the success and a great future for Forennte. Meet you soon! :)
My wish was granted and was called by Namrataa for tasting of newly introduced pastries. She is cute, fun-loving woman entrepreneur who has a passion for cooking and especially baking. This was the first time I visited Forennte and glad I did. Little, nice, cosy, quaint, artistically designed cafe with seating capacity for almost ten to fifteen people. Mezzanine floor is kept for any art related workshop—painting, baking etc. Namrataa has already exhibited few art-works of local artists and planning to do more.
When asked about Forennte, she said, "It was born out of my love for the arts and passion for baking. I always combine grandma style recipes with high quality ingredients to create and exotic experiences of enticing flavours."
Well coming on the food, she wanted me to play a guessing game of differentiating eggless and egg pastries. We were served cute looking two pastries with a chocolate powder smiley! Yes..It can makes someone's day! Such a positive vibe you get.
First two were, Chocolate Orange Gateau and Tropical Sunshine. Chocolate Orange Gateau was a delicate chocolate sponge layered with cream and covered in orange mousse. It looked so beautiful. First bite and tangarine flavour outburst in mouth followed with chocolate. Tropical Sunshine, another gem with passionfruit twist. Salted caramel, a dreamy cake, filled with creamy not-so-sweet caramel icing with sea salt for balancing.
Next plate had Giotto Gateau which was a combination of chocolate mousse and tiramisu with a crunchy base. It was gooey and creamy. One of my favourite! Sacher Torte had nice rich dark chocolate and raspberry flavour, totally loved it.
So, in total, tasted 5 flavours, one better than the other and yes my answers were almost perfect. The icing on the cake was super healthy Spiced Almond Milk from grandmother's recipe in a traditional way. We had a surprise when Namrataa handed over a hamper of my fav. Jalapeno Pinwheels, Chocolate Fudge and newly introduced Granola. I finished all that as soon as I reached home! :)
Overall, it was fun meeting Namrataa and yes its the place, I would visit again for sure! Do enjoy few more photographs.
