About Zahra Cafe

I see cooking as my calling, my life’s enduring passion. It all started many years ago, when my husband would host business dinner meetings at our home. These meetings were very important for the future of his company, so I had to work extra hard to make sure that whatever I put on the table would leave a good impression on all. Although I didn’t have a lot of experience at the time, I was eager to keep on challenging myself. Eventually, I set for myself a goal and resolved to meet it on every occasion: all my guests would have only the best of homemade cooking.

I had the passion and the drive to learn and to develop myself, but knowing where to start wasn’t easy. Luckily, support from my family was right there whenever I needed it. My sister was also interested in cooking and suggested some great resources for me to learn from, such as The Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker and the cookbooks of Betty Crocker.
