From iPhones To Macarons: Apple CEO Tim Cook Takes A Break To Bake With Celebrity Chef Pooja Dhingra

A day after Tim Cook unveiled the iPhone maker’s second retail store in the country, the Apple CEO posted a photograph of himself designing a macaron board with celebrity chef Pooja Dhingra during his time in Mumbai.

What Happened? Cook who’s had a packed itinerary since arriving in Mumbai on April 17, had posted a photograph of himself chatting with Bollywood icon Madhuri Dixit who introduced the Apple chief to vada pav – a street food classic that is arguably Mumbai’s favourite snack.

Retweeting Cook’s tweet, pastry chef of huge acclaim, Pooja Dhingra informally invited the Apple CEO for a round of dessert at her patisserie named ‘Le15’. Although Cook may have been too busy to respond to Dhingra at the time, he visited Le15 to check out what the ‘macaron queen’ had in store.

“It was a treat to spend time in Pooja's kitchen. Her passion for baking and the business she's created is a reminder of what's possible when you follow your dreams. Great to see how she uses iPhone and Mac in her creative process. Best macaron I've ever had!” tweeted Cook on early Friday.
