There’s something special about Velvetiine. It’s a tiny bakery located at Ray Street, tucked away in the lane opposite Aqua Jaca, Sarat Bose Road. But, once you reach it, you will have a tempting blast of colours from all the cookies and cupcakes and other delightful goodies to welcome you. Mark my words, you will be highly confused about what to pick. And, once you put your first pick into your mouth, you will want to go back for more! But, what’s special about Velvetiine is more than the pretty and delicious desserts, but the rusticity and warmth with which they welcome everyone. And, that rusticity is very much present in each and every item on the Christmas Special Menu at Velvetiine, Kolkata.

I received an invitation by the management team of Velvetiine, and went there to taste their winter menu. And I upon reaching, I was amazed by their perfect balance of professionalism and homeliness, be it in their cakes or their way of treating the guests. Such amicable and warm behaviour! As for their desserts, they all have a homely touch. But, that does not interfere with the level of finesse in the final products. And, that is exactly what I loved about this place – the balance between finesse and rusticity. The buttery cookies, the melt-in-your-mouth cakes, the flavourful mousses – each item is uniquely delicious!

I often ask myself – does the artistry of baking lie in making a mirror glaze cake, or is it in grandma’s homespun apple pie? Does simplicity still work, or has perfection overridden it? I guess, at this point, it is safe to admit that I don’t have the qualification or experience to make an expert comment on that. I’m just a simple foodie – a hungry shark in human form, if you will. What struck me about Velvetiine is that it has channelized all its effort to be perfect into the taste and quality of the delightful baked goods, rather than the presentation. And, yet, they look perfectly appetising!
