Even famed restaurateur Vikram Vij was apparently starstruck when he first met Mrs. Noorbanu Nimji.
“I already know who she is,” he gushed. “I have her cookbooks!”
But 80-year-old Calgarian Noorbanu Nimji has sold over 260,000 copies of her books. It was Anderson who introduced me to Nimji. The two met in the ’90s after Anderson took one of Noorbanu’s classes at the Cookbook Company Cooks, and she’s been learning from her ever since.
It’s your time to write a cookbook -I told you some time ago !

Dear Noorbanu Aunty, Congratulations to you. Wow, you should be proud of yourself. I know I am .
Also, you don’t look like you are eighty years old! You look a lot younger. I am very happy for you. You deserve every bit of success and recognition.
Looking at your picture reminded me of my childhood when I used to come to your house and play on the swings with Nazlin. At least you were always kind to me. God Bless you with good Health, Happiness and lots of success, Amen.
Even Marco made Siro for me and it turned out very Good.
Lots of Love, Azmina
