Did you see a crowd this weekend at the local sweets store or a restaurant known for some great goodies in Mylapore?
Yes, the sales were good, as were home deliveries.
Not many people are making sweets at home nowadays. Those who do make a symbolic lot of one sweet and one savoury.
“We prefer ordering. It is simple and easy,” said Latha R., from Mandaveli.
“People do not mind paying if the sweets are really good,” says a restauranteur on the mada street, whose brand sells well on its sweets.
When Mylapore Times called a dozen people to check if we could video shoot the sweets they made, only one householder said she had made a few sweets.
The demand for made-sweets over the counter is what has also prompted a leading caterer like Sastha Catering who is based in Porur to repeat his December Season show – he booked a wedding hall in Jeth Nagar and had dozens of sweets to offer, some made on the spot; and while people waited for their goodies, they could tuck into snacks or have any of the ‘variety rice” at noon time.
