It was yesterday around 8pm and it was raining cats ans dogs
We had this call around 9.20 pm when it was raining heavily around HSR layout from one of our consumers and the conversation went like this (minus the usual pleasantries):
Consumer: Hi, where do I get a croquembouche ?
MeDine: Sir, what did you say ? Can you spell it for me please ?
Consumer: (Speaks to wife): Its croq mmmmm buche – pronounced as croquembouche
MeDine: Thanks sir, we shall search and get back to you with options.
9.23 pm – Figured out about croquembouche from wiki and other stuff –
croque-en-bouche is a French dessert consisting of choux pastry balls piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel. In Italy and France, it is often served at weddings, baptisms, and first communions.
9.23-9.40 pm: Yes solid 17 mins and 8 calls go out for 8 different brands of cakes, patisseries so that we know who has it and finally find out that Desserted in Vasanth nagar, Bangalore makesChocolate Choux Croquembouche .
9.42 – We confirm that its possible and at 9.47 we call the customer to tell him that we indeed found a place that does it and we can arrange for delivery the next day.
