Hi There! My name is Safiya. I'm an author, food photographer, recipe developer and the creator behind Feast with Safiya. So glad you stopped by to learn about me and I hope you get to try some of my recipes. Here you'll find Modern & Authentic Indian recipes that I usually cook for my family. All the recipes I post are tested and perfected for many years. So, you won't be disappointed here ;). I promise!
I'm an Indian-American born and raised in a small town in India. I live with my husband and kids in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. I made so many wonderful friends from all sorts of different backgrounds here. Utah is my second home.
I'm a self-taught food photographer and food stylist. When I am not cooking or posting recipes, I'm spending time with my boys or calling my parents.
Cooking isn't Just a Hobby
I grew up in the kitchen. Whether if it was a regular day or a celebration, I was always a sous chef in the kitchen for the women of my family. I cooked my first meal with my older brother when I was in 4th grade. Therefore, cooking is beyond a hobby for me. I have created memories in the kitchen with my beautiful mother, my loved ones, my friends, and my neighbors that I will always cherish.
Yes, you will find recipes with a modern American twist here. I started experimenting with different flavors and cuisine after marrying my American husband. So you will find recipes that are more suitable for a Non-Indian palate. Like, Indo-American Meatball Curry, Hasselback Butternut Squash. Don't worry, all the fusion and modern Indian recipes are tested and perfected many times before I publish them. My American husband is a taste tester of all of my modern recipes.
Cooking with Clean Ingredients
I choose to cook with Whole Foods and Clean Ingredients as my Mother did. I like to incorporate a lot of vegetables and little meat and generous spices in my cooking. My love for cooking with nutritious and whole foods isn't just for a trend. It's a way of living I was raised on.
