Do you think sweet and savoury go together? Perhaps in one meal, but in one dessert? While traditionally, you may not pair the two, Sugar Play, a new patisserie in Mumbai is all set to change that perception.
According to the SugarPlay website, the patisserie is looking to “break away from the norm of what is the generally ‘acceptable’ dessert. It says: “We enjoy blurring the lines between savoury and sweet, and create pieces that are enjoyable and satiate your senses, just like great dessert should. Each piece of dessert is handmade fresh, daily at our quaint little kitchen by skilled artisans who completely love what they do.”
Sugar Play will place a focus on local ingredients, commenting that they “firmly believe that all ingredients, irrespective of their perceived value, have the potential to be stars in a dish if used intelligently.”
