Welcome to Niloufer's Kitchen
Born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, Niloufer’s love for food combined with extensive world travel from a young age inspired her to experiment with world cuisines. Niloufer gave her first cooking class to a group of school girls at the age of 17; loving the opportunity to meet new people who share her passion for food, she has gone on to give many, many more cooking classes in Dubai, UK, and Canada - where she has lived for the past 16 years with her family. Most recently she was invited as a guest to the prestigious cookery school Le Cordon Bleu London to demonstrate and share her knowledge on Parsi Cooking.
In 2013, Niloufer decided to start a recipe blog Niloufer’s Kitchen where she loves to share old and new culinary creations to a following of 220,000 from around the world. Author of The Art of Parsi Cooking; reviving an ancient cuisine and 10 e-cookbooks, besides writing for the Huffington Post, she also publishes in assorted magazines and journals from around the world.
