Hey there! My name is Ilhaam Banoobhai-Anwar, I am a Wife, Blogger and Coriander Lover.

My food journey began when I decided to study Food & Beverage Management at the Cape Town Hotel School. Little did I know that I would one day end up working there. I have a Masters Degree in Tourism & Hospitality Management and am a full time Culinary Lecturer.

My recipes focus on simple ingredients that won’t break the bank. I love cooking these cuisines: Indian, Italian, Mexican and all types of Asian. Since I don’t have a lot of time when I come home from work, most of my dishes can be made in 30 minutes.

If you don’t know how to cook thats not a problem either – follow me on Instagram where I cook on my Instastories on a daily basis, showing you step-by-step recipes.

My recipes include tips and substitutes so you don’t have to go grocery shopping for that one item you don’t have in your cupboard.

The best part is they are all intuitive and can be made according to your preference. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
