Hi, I’m Shaheen, born and raised in a gastronomic family where every conversation revolves around food and cooking is most relied on approximation and eyeballing the ingredients or ratios and proportions for measurements. A die heart foodie and a physiotherapist by profession.
Married to a banker and a mother of a 8 year old sonny boy. I simply love eating sweets and…….. sweets. Simple and straight forward, love to speak on loud and clear and just can’t tolerate double faced people. Friends know me as a ‘No Nonsense Woman‘. I am short tempered hence i eat a lot to release my anger. I strongly believe that ‘Life is short, eat dessert first!’ hence i not just love eating but also love to feed my family and friends at any odd hour of the day with a smile on my face. Cooking completes me, it’s not just a passion, it’s a therapy for me. I feel incomplete the day i don’t get inside my kitchen. Some times my family wonders if i had explored other parts of my house or not … Lol
Spoon Fork And Food was created on a lazy summer afternoon in the fall of 2014, initially in an effort to keep my sanity in check but gradually blogging became a motive to pen down my experience of learning and refining in the journey with food from home and the world beyond, from street food to the fine dining, from mom’s recipes to Chef’s talk. This blog is a collection of good food and fond memories that remind me of my mum’s home cooked food, those that transport me to distant moments of childhood or shared happy times with loved ones, friends and family. Recipes here are a reflection of me, my roots, who I was, who I am and who I will be as I evolve with the foods I discover, embrace and make them my own!
Blogging gave me a platform to discover the real me inside. Photography is one such achievement. Being a Home Science student i always had an artist inside me, undiscovered and unexplored. Food styling and photography brought that artist out and presented in front of the world. From blogging to styling and photography, I am a self learned person. I strong believer in hard work and honesty, any person who is honest and hardworking can reach the highest. All you need is to trust yourself!
