Sticky Date Cake and Toffee Sauce For Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana


Sticky Date Cake & Toffee Sauce-For Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana - Shailaja Desai

Hello Friends!

This is my first post in the New year and I promise an exciting one too.

The New year has begun well and my kitchen is buzzing with activity. But before I get into my culinary adventures I’d love to share the highlight of this year.

Well imagine my excitement when I was asked to do a cooking demo for Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana on their You tube channel. It was right in the beginning of Jan this year when Alyona Kapoor (Sanjeev’s wife) also a dear friend of mine asked me to send in two of my favorite recipes that I’d like to demonstrate.

Now Sanjeev Kapoor needs no introduction. An Indian Master chef with the ever popular cooking show Khana Khazana and now Food Food an Indian food and lifestyle channel owned by him. Do check him out on:

Yes of course I said,I’d be absolutely delighted to do so.

The two recipes that I thought I could show were a Quinoa Salad and the Sticky date Cake with toffee sauce. Well then very excitedly I sent off both the recipes.

D-day arrives -was I nervous? Well a tad bit I have to say.Now while I do run cooking workshops for Adults & kids, it’s quite different being in front of the camera…and to keep looking straight into it and talking all the time.

Anyways I was shown around the kitchen. I quickly made some mental notes as to where everything was. The ingredients were all lined up in front of me…

Lights,Camera and action….and I started of…Welcome to Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana…I’m Shailaja Desai and I ‘d love to share a wonderful recipe for a Sticky date cake and toffee sauce with you today.

The show went on smoothly I thought. Ofcourse when I look at the video I keep hearing Alyona in the background reminding me to modulate my tone and talk slowly and my husband who kept drawing a smiley face on his I-pad, hoping I’d smile more. Well points noted for the next time that I have to face the camera.

I certainly had a lovely time shooting this video in Sanjeev Kapoor’s kitchen and certainly hope I have many more opportunities.

Enjoy the video folks and do give this super easy recipe a try. I will upload the other video soon. Untill then cheers to another year of wonderful cooking.
