From the Arabian Sea to the peaks of the Himalayas, cuisine in Karachi is as diverse as its inhabitants and draws influences from across South, Central, and West Asia. The local food is bold in flavor, and comes in many forms including curries, soups, stews, wraps, pilafs, pies, and more. Internationally acclaimed Pakistani chef and educator Kausar Ahmed has curated and created unique, mouthwatering recipes in this gorgeous one-of-a-kind cookbook. Readers will discover a whole new world of flavor through the culinary arts of a multi-cultural region that sits at the crossroads of South Asia.

Kausar Ahmed is a food stylist, chef, and cooking instructor with over 20 years of experience in culinary arts. Since her foray into culinary arts she has served as a chef, food stylist, cooking show producer and host, and culinary instructor in Pakistan and the United States. She is best known for her work through Kitchen Craft, an organization she founded in 2009 that offers free nutrition and cooking workshops to women and youth in high-risk communities around Karachi, with the goal of promoting healthy eating and hygiene habits amongst impoverished families.
