Originally, when I wrote this page I used what my publisher gave me for my book. Then I re read it and scrapped it as it felt too, well, formal. Anyone who knows me, knows I am anything but.
So, here is the 'real' about me stuff, without the fluff!
I love to cook. I love to eat. I love to shop for food, talk about food, smell food and sometimes even dream about food (which often leads to me waking hungry at 2 am and scavenging about for chocolate).
Self taught cook, yadda yadda yadda. In reality, the first thing I cooked was beans on toast. Then I used to bake and cook with my family. I watched, learned and joined in. Once, I even flattened a jam roly poly when I thought I was being helpful. Story of my life!!!
I have had more than my fair share of cooking disasters. I blew up a pressure cooker once and it took the artex off the ceiling and it showered me in ghormeh sabzi (which is essentially a spinach shower. A hot, smelly one)
I do have a passion for bringing Persian and Middle Eastern food into people’s homes. I do want to show everyone just how accessible and delicious it is.
Every so often I run a Supper Club in Shropshire and Cheshire and it does sell out, which is so lovely and I am forever grateful to all of you that come along.
I've written a recipe book which is quite honestly like painting the forth bridge at the moment due to so many delays... but it really is coming out....soon....I promise!
This is all one big adventure really, and one that I have honestly loved every second of and hope it will be a long one.
Oh, I also get really bitey and cross on occasion. I also love a glass of bubbles!
