The Scotistani Cooks @the.scotistani.cooksFood connects hearts – I believe it is a way of expressing love and gratitude towards one another.

Growing up my mother was very big on ensuring we always ate home cooked meals. She believed that cooking was not only a lifelong skill, but also a way people connect and learn from one another.

My goal through my cooking and recipes is to ensure home cooking stays alive in a world where it is easy to eat what is convenience rather then an engaging in the experience of cooking and having a sense of achievement in presenting a beautiful dish.

I am a British-born, Pakistani woman who grew up in Glasgow Scotland and I am now living in Canada. For more easy-to-cook recipes, be sure to follow me on my Instagram food blogging page @the.scotistani.cooks.
