IPR Director launches baking book


Dimapur, April 15: ‘Nagas are no less in creativity be it in film making, photography or in writing and we can do what others can do given the opportunity,’ said Director, Information & Public Relations Limawati Ao at the book launch of ‘Sweet Station Anyone can Bake’ by Jenny Kath Thong at Crossword Kohima on Saturday.
Commenting on the cake made with indigenous ingredients, Limawati said it speaks volumes about the book and the unique recipes in the book make it more important and interesting. He hoped that the book will inspire the upcoming bakers and the younger generation will take up baking to the next level.
‘A world class book written by a Naga and also published and printed from Nagaland such reason makes us proud to be a Naga’, he said. He wished the book success and the Pen Thrill Publication House will bring out such good publications in future as well.
Jenny Kath, author of the book speaking at the event, said that as a working woman, a homemaker and a mother it was difficult for her to give baking lessons to all who wants to learn baking so she thought of compiling a recipe of all the cakes she had baked over the years and bring out a book. She further added that the book will help women or all those upcoming bakers in their journey of becoming a baker.
The author Jenny Kath Thong is a self taught baker and an alumni of Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) Mumbai and is currently working as Rural Development Officer in Department of RD. Her love for baking has resulted in ‘Sweet Station’ a favourite destination for cake lovers. The book will be sold in Bible house, Sweet Station and Crossword Kohima. The book can also be purchased online. (Page News Service)
