I was born and raised in Shiraz, Iran and emigrated to Canada in 1989. I completed my MA degree in anthropology from York University in Toronto and, for the past 15 years, have worked as a freelance researcher, a project coordinator, a trainer and a writer. I am passionate about writing, blogging and cooking, and I live in a house on West Island in Montreal’s suburbs with my husband, our dog, and a mind full of memories. A Sip, A Bite, A Mouthful is my first book-length publication.
A story of growing up in Shiraz of the 1960s told through memories of food and cuisine, A Sip, A Bite, A Mouthful contains an account of Iranian customs, passions and rituals; it depicts a vivid picture of life in pre- and post-revolutionary Iran; and it touches on experiences of Iranian expatriates and the migration of their favourite foods, feasts, tastes and eating habits to the west.
