Hi - I'm Noor!

I'm an international development practitioner, food and culture enthusiast and a perpetual daydreamer.

I am from Bangladesh but grew up internationally living across half a dozen cities (including Dhaka, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Moscow and Los Angeles) before settling in New York. Cooking, photographing and writing about the culture and cuisines I love are some of my biggest passions, what fills much of my free time, and what this space is primarily dedicated to.

I enjoy creating new recipes that particularly reflect my Bangladeshi background and global upbringing, as well as recipes that represent my husband's Sri Lankan roots. I host a monthly supper club in New York focused on these two cuisines in particular and love to showcase them at every opportunity through speaking engagements, collaborations and pop-ups.

I am also a founder at Cue-rated, a company based in NYC that crafts unique events promoting South Asian art and culture, including culinary events.

Feel free to contact me with questions and collaboration ideas, follow my work on Instagram and keep an eye out for my upcoming events.
