Anyone who's tried Theobroma brownies knows that they are literally food for the gods. What most people don't know is that the recipe was born in a small Colaba kitchen, on a neighbour's request. Baking a Dream: The Theobroma Story is the story of a 'food-obsessed' family that made their culinary dreams come true. Theobroma founders Kainaz and Tina Messman tell the story of how their ambitious and slightly eccentric Parsi family grew a home catering business into a multi-million business venture. From a single cafe with just four tables, Theobroma has today grown into a chain of 50 outlets across the country. The Messman sisters offer a no-holds-barred look at the challenges of working with family and offer tips on how to turn a passion for baking into a profitable career. Sharing their stumbles and successes, the book also serves as a guide to other entrepreneurs looking to scale their ventures.
