    but the name escaped me at that time.It has helped me a lot
    to learn more about cooking after what I learnt from the family.

  4. Dear Noorbanu, Sept. 30, 2007

    I am interested in purchasing your A Spicy Touch Cookbooks Vol. I, II and III, if you could let me know where in Toronto, in which Indian grocery stores can I find these books, or if you can suggest to me where I can buy them from.

    Your response will be much appreciated.

    Thank you.


    1. Not sure if you got your answer. The books are available at the following grocery store.
      Famous Cash & Carry & Halal Meat  Address: 1871 O’Connor Dr, North York, ON M4A 1X1
      Phone: (416) 755-5425. Hope this helps. I think Vol II is sold out.

  12. Aunty Noorbanu,
    I am an Ismaili, and I would like to buy your book (Vol 3) because I learned to cook all of my favourite foods from my childhood from your books (Vol 1 and 2, which I have). My family all use your cookbook – it is indispensable. I just realized that you have vol 3 and would like to purchase it – please, let me know if you could send a book to me by mail if I can send payment by cheque or another method. You can reach me at Many thanks….I look forward to hearing from you.
