Welcome to Niloufer's Kitchen

Born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, my love for food combined with extensive world travel from a young age inspired me to experiment with world cuisines. I gave my first cooking class at the age of 17; loving the opportunity to meet new people who share my passion for food, I have gone on to give many, many more cooking classes in Dubai, UK, and Canada - where I now reside for the past 21 years. 

Growing up in a foodie family, my love and passion for food was natural. As a self-taught chef and culinary teacher, I have authored two cookbooks on Parsi food and won 3 Gourmand awards. I have also got 10 e-books on various cuisines from around the world online. 

Decades of teaching prompted me to start my blog in November 2013 and now awaits its millionth hit. 

Food photography and journalism about food has share my thoughts with the world. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity of writing numerous articles published in a variety of magazines, journals and newspapers – from Delicious Magazine, The Fezana Journal, Hamazor, Huffington Post, The Parsiana, Jam e Jamshed among others. The highlights of my career has been an invitation as a guest chef at Le Cordon Bleu in London and on the tv show for The Cooks Cook in New Hampshire and more recently on Voice of Canada.

My mantra is #revivinganancientcuisine one recipe at a time, and I have a dream of putting Parsi cuisine on the culinary platform globally while travelling and enjoying food photography.
