Goan Baath Cake (or Baathika) is a traditional cake that is one of the go-to desserts during Christmas time. It is traditionally made with semolina (farina) and later drenched in a lemon rose syrup. There are many versions of this cake across the regions ranging from the Egyptian "Basbousa" to the Greek "Samali" to the Malaysian "Kek Sugee".
The version I will teach is an adaptation Goan's "Baathika" made to be both gluten-free & vegan. I swap out Semolina for Polenta (Corn Meal) and swap out dairy options with vegan butter and coconut milk. Join me and learn how to make this delicious that has a delicate palate that is sure to impress!
About Our Teacher
“I have had a lifelong affair with food - starting with my origins in Northern Borneo coupled with my South Asian heritage and South East Asian roots. I grew up surrounded by food lovers and with influences ranging from up in Punjab and across to Sulawesi - and that was just at home! By age 16, I was fortunate to have travelled most of the world which only added to my culinary tapestry - and continues to.
My mission is to demystify the art and alchemy of all things culinary! I believe that when we learn and practice the fundamentals properly, we'll be in the best position to elevate absolutely anything we create, at our pace, and to our liking and taste!
I currently reside in Australia and while I am not a chef by profession, I am committed to becoming informally what I term "An Acquired Chef" with the intention to contribute to all those who stand to benefit from my repertoire.
Food is love, love to cook, cook with love, love to feed.”
