Being Persian/English, growing up, all of our social gatherings centered around food and conversation and this is a tradition that I have taken and shared with my family and friends to this day. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by so many different flavours, colours and aromas with my senses being delighted daily and thus grew my absolute love and obsession with food.

In a society where everything is so fast paced and everyone is so focussed on instant gratification and keeping up with the Jones’, from instant messaging & same day deliveries to social media dominating a vast proportion of our waking hours, cooking and enjoying delicious well prepared food with my favourite people,retains for me a comforting reassurance that some traditions can be preserved. What better way to nourish your soul than to feed it with beautiful flavours, vibrant colours and fragrant aroma’s.
