Wajida is the co founder of Kitchen Cultures. Based in Ontario, Canada. Their website specialises in mixing it up and sharing what they know about food. At the get go, I am going to ask you guys to check out their website. Such a great website with colourful pictures of food. They do everything from inspiring you to cook what you have in your pantry, to cooking for a crowd. In my opinion, They epitomise the idea of uniting people over food.

- Biryani, Eid and why I love them
- Ramadan and what my take on abstinence
