COOKING & WRITING
Hi, I'm Maryam. I'm a Mauritian-American-British twenty-something living in London. I was born in Mauritius, a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. It's a gorgeous tiny island nation that deserves to be better-known and celebrated, with a cuisine that I call the "OG Fusion" because it combines African, Mediterranean, and Asian cooking into its own authentic cuisine. With my mom, Parvine (aka Mrs.T or Mama T), we are saving what I believe are deeply meaningful and important parts of my own culture and family history. I am lucky to have help from relatives in Mauritius and friends from around the world who also provide me with recipes and stories from the homeland.
PHOTOGRAPHY & EDITING
My father, Shawkat (aka Dr.T, Professor Toorawa) and my sister Asiya are the amazing artistic and editorial support for this project.
