Hi — I’m Noor!

IMG_20171023_022858_441I’m a microfinance & international development professional, supper club host, food blogger and a perpetual daydreamer. Cooking, styling and photographing food are some of my biggest passions, what fills much of my free time and what this blog is primarily dedicated to.

I grew up living in seven countries before settling in New York, so I (naturally) love exploring food from all over the world. And there’s nothing I enjoy more than connecting over food while sharing my culinary heritage with others — whether it be at my table or through my shared recipes and food stories. I love crafting new recipes that reflect my Bangladeshi and my husband’s Sri Lankan roots, and I also occasionally host pop-up events in New York that are focused on these two cuisines in particular.

I tend to cook hearty, home-style dishes that are often vegetarian, seasonal and influenced by my travels and a nomadic global upbringing. Through my recipes and events, I hope to introduce you to some of the amazing dishes that my husband and I have grown up with and still enjoy in our Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi home.

I’m currently developing this site to function as an index of recipes that I have created and curated, which I look forward to sharing soon.

In the meantime, feel free to contact me for questions and collaborations, follow my work on Instagram (@noorieboorie) & Facebook and keep an eye out for my upcoming events.
