Hello & Welcome,
My mother, followed in the footsteps of her mother! She established the title of an exceptional cook from a young age. Like many I spend most of my childhood alongside my mother as sous-chef. So it is no surprise that I was destined to pick up a handful of skills, along with a bucket full of love for cooking and hosting. I cooked my first meal at 12 years old and there was no adult supervision. The meal was a complete success and this became my first of many of my delicious recipes!
I spent the first 12 years of my life in Iran and after my families move to the UK it was my mums authentic delicious recipes from the northern region of Iran, The Caspian Sea that helped us stay connected to our loved ones. That is precisely why the delicious recipes I share are inspired by the people, cultures and places beloved to me.
In recent years I started to photograph and share my recipes with my friends and family. Very quickly both the number of you guys and my love for sharing my family’s authentic delicious recipes grew. When I made this website I named it ‘My Diary’; my mini version of a cookbook. I expected the only visitor to be my ever supportive loving mother. Yet I am overwhelmed everyday with the number of visitors that pass by. So thank you for trying out my recipes and I hope that you love them enough to stick around.
