Vegetarian Cheesy Potato Boats – The story of Vinita Sugesh

Baking has been Vinita’s passion since she was 15 years old. She used to be a teacher but with time, she realized that baking was her true calling and she had to take it up more seriously. This gave birth to her homebaking venture, ‘Bakes and Treats’ in Bengaluru. If you see the pictures of her bakes, they are sure to catch your attention with it’s simplicity, beauty and elegance. She pipes beautiful edible flowers on most of her cakes which uplift their visual appeal and make one want to have a piece! ‘We don’t use any preservatives or additives in our bakes, all the ingredients are fresh and homemade’ says Vinita during the Youtube video shoot.

Her sons wait for her bakes, both savoury and sweet, to get a taste of the deliciousness because nobody can resist the smell of fresh bakes at home! Vinita has a separate pantry room attached to her kitchen which is stocked up with materials for her baking business, whether it be equipments ,raw materials, ingredients or others. It was a colorful sight to see an organized pantry and delightful to see how passionate she is about her venture which makes sure that the customers get only the best.

When we planned to make a video with Vinita, the initial idea was that she would bake a tart but unfortunately, due to unforeseen situations, the shoot didn’t take place on that day. Later, she decided to show a savoury recipe because we had only a few of those at the time on our Youtube channel. She had prepared this bake for a certain competition a few years back due to its innovation and taste and won a prize for the same. Hence, she was confident that our viewers would love this recipe. She demonstrates Vegeterian Potato Boats which are baked, cheesy, crispy and oh, so delicious! If you are going for a light dinner, this could be a full meal! So, why don’t we learn how to make this at home?
