During the uncertainty of COVID while not having social functions and gatherings at Jamatkhana, Zed and Karima (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), decided to put their new found free time into creating their cookbook, A Hint of Spice: East African Indian Fusion Recipes which represents Ismaili heritage and their East African/Indian roots.
Zed and Karima both absolutely love to cook! The inspiration for this book came from each of their mother’s cooking and their family and friends. The book contains recipes that have been passed down multiple generations within their families. Zed and Karima wanted to create something to share with their children and pass along to many more future generations.
Recipes in the book include Butter Chicken, Fried Kebabs, and Beef Cutlets, to name a few. When creating the book, Zed and Karima worked to simplify recipes to make them easy to follow for anyone.
