Growing up, Gurbani had always been fascinated watching her mother bake. Seeing what a metal box could do to simple ingredients like butter, flour, eggs and sugar turned her fascination into a major interest and the “oven” became one of her favourite kitchen appliances.


Besides full-time baking, Gurbani is also a farmerette at Zoetic Farms, a full-fledged functional farm, in Bilaspur, Uttarakhand. Spending time with her fur babies and taking care of “everything earth”, gives her immense joy.


‘Gurbani Bakes’ is her blog based on gorgeous desserts, other baked goodies and beautiful food photographs. Gurbani is a recipe developer, a food photographer and a food stylist, with a passion for baking pretty things. She started this blog as a way to catalogue the recipes she has developed and those she was inspired by. She hopes to encourage a love for baking while retaining the fun element.
