Bengali Snacks

Snacks offered by very hospitable Bengalis!

After an hour of football this morning, then a one hour walk to the North End Coffee Roasters Shop in Dhanmondi with my wife, we were ready for lunch! White Mocha coffee, and roast beef and cheese sandwich. This is a must-do coffee shop if visiting Dhaka, Bangladesh!

Wedding Cake

A beautiful unique wedding cake. This was for the bridal table. The rest of the guests had a choice of many cheesecakes for their desserts.

Bridal Table Arrangement

The bride, a good friend of ours, arranged this plate for me to photograph it! It was a lovely wedding!

Creativity at it’s best! The cherries are icing, as are the strips on top of the pie! And the icing is put on top of many cupcakes! Kudos to the artist!
One of my favorite pies, and my wife does a bang-up job of baking it. We enjoyed it on Thanksgiving Day!!  I had a request for the recipe, so I hope in the editing it is posted again!
