On a Wednesday morning we met Bani Nanda, a choux-making wizard of sweetness, in her workshop: Miam Patisserie. We’ve met Bani before, but since our last encounter (you definitely want to try making this recipe) she’s set up a brick and mortar home for MIAM in a shared space with Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters and Big Fat Sandwich right by her home in SDA market.
Bani’s signature style is equal parts sweet and sauce: pencil skirts, chunky shoes, ruffles for days, and her raven hair always parted down the middle. “I like to dress well all the time!” she told us laughing. “Sometimes I’ll wear the same look for the day and for night. I love prints, flared jeans, chunky shoes, big earrings and structured tops. I also love monochromes—black and white particularly (it's an obsession).”
