Over the years I have found it quite challenging to find uncommon cooking ingredients, baking essentials in Nashik. Frequent trips to Mumbai, especially Crawford market /Hypercity and the likes were the norm for me 2 years back. I still love going to Crawford market (I call it the foodie paradise) but the trips have become infrequent. The availability of these ingredients and baking essentials in Nashik is improving rapidly. I have found some of the best ingredients and equipments in some of the most unexpected places.
‘Gourmet Nashik’ is an attempt to share these finds for the benefit of other interested food loving Nashikites.
I will keep on updating the information as and when I get more information. Nashikites your inputs through the comments section to ‘Gourmet Nashik’ are welcome; any information related to cooking/baking ingredients equipments is welcome.

Don’t get fooled by the name! This is a paradise for bakers, especially beginners .It is such a tiny little shop that if you are not careful you might miss this. It is located on one of the busiest streets in the older part of the city but a trip here is worth. Cake pans,tins,cookie cutters,butter paper,piping bags,tips, gels, liquid colours,cake boards,simple plastic cake turntable, cake boxes, confetti, Silver balls,chocolates, spatula,cream horns,icecream cones, measuring spoons and cups and many many more such things
The only caution here I would suggest is the store owner is not a very friendly person. Make a list of things you need in advance and then go and ask him for it instead of depending on him to show you what he has!
