Creating a book more than writing is a nerve-wrecking journey. Especially when it comes to cooking or baking desserts, your creativity and talent in curating new recipes takes the lead. While most of us are completely content in baking a cheesecake or a chocolate pudding – Shivesh Bhatia treats the love for desserts on a whole nother level.

4 dessert books and 6 years later, with the 5th one on the way – the versatility that each book brings only makes us want to experiment in the kitchen too. Let’s not forget that his Instagram is a baked paradise we’ve all dreamed about for the longest time.

The world of talented chefs and bakers have one thing in common – is to spread their culinary influences in the minds and stomachs of anyone who tries their recipes. Every book promises a new take on ideas and while his way on the top hasn’t been easy – it’s the constant fear of being stuck. 

But finding success in a career that revolves around baking and ideating all on your kitchen table is something not many have aced. Shivesh has influenced many women and men to take a step forward in the field of baking – while his books have a variety of their own. 

Making his name with Forbes on the 30 Under 30 list all due to his drive for baking and spreading happiness through his creations. What sets him apart, is not just the ‘baking’ part but his talent to whip up the best of each ingredient. 

I’ve been scrolling through his feed, and noticed that his best creations are surely chocolate based but they cover events, festivals, and occasions, and versatility to parties and daily activities. 

Our top versatile picks from his collection would be:

1. Banoffee Pie

A modern take on the classic dessert. This pie holds the ingredients that ticks all of our boxes for a mouthful of a party.

Just as our chocolate chip cookie hits the spot every time, I am in awe with this twist. And honestly I still cannot get over it. #slay
