Cooking has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood in Iran watching my mum cook our family meals and I was always wondering how she can magically make them so tasty and palatable.
My childhood background inspired me to professionally pursue cooking, and I passionately took culinary courses and joined our family restaurant business in Northern Iran.
When I moved to the UK, I have further studied Catering and Hospitality at college. That was such a joyful and insightful time, as I have learned more in-depth about the cuisines that is practiced around the world, organisations, and important kitchen skills.
I have learned a great deal from my food blog “I got it from my Maman” about the significant role that food plays in our lives. Food is not all about nourishing our body, but to make us all connected. Certain dishes and aromas could evoke our childhood memories, make us feel taken care of, like a warm hug, or make us excited about discovering what more is out there.
My mission is to help you create dishes, that give you those positive emotions and celebrate the awesomeness of Persian food.
