Biscuitwallah was born this year so that my daughter and I could share our obsessive love of baking, travel, and NYC. Even though she is nothing like me, in someways, the apple has not fallen far from the tree. She also gets excited by the new issue of Martha Stewart, only watches Food Network (full disclosure: I also watch Big Love and The Tudors) and will wander for hours in NY Cake & Bake oogling the new jimmies. I don’t remember what I was doing when I was 11 but I think it had to do with Judy Blume and Teen Beat.
Oh…for those of you who don’t know, “wallah” is a Hindi suffix translating to “agent, doer, keeper, man, inhabitant, master, lord, possessor, owner.” So in being biscuitwallahs, we are a possessor of the peanut butter blossom, a master of the madeleine, an owner of the oreo, a keeper of the cookie, and an inhabitant of the deliciously wonderful world of baking.
So join us on the journey of exploration and wonder into the world of biscuits and other heavenly pursuits.
