As a first generation Bangladeshi, the food at home was either a celebration of the deep rooted traditions brought over by my parents or a fusion of both East and West. As hard as my mother tried, she could never truly master the essence of Western cooking; this was the catalyst in my journey to master cooking. At a young age, I had busied myself in the art of western cooking, but it wasn't until I moved away for college that I truly began to appreciate all the traditional wisdom my mother had unknowingly instilled in me growing up. With that I began to create dishes that told a story of either my history or my continuing journeys. My hope now is to not only share my story through my recipes but to inspire others to translate their own into meaningful meals.
