ABOUT SHAYMA SAADAT
Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Shayma is a Pakistani-Afghan with Persian lineage who grew up all over the world. She came to Toronto, Canada, via Rome, Italy, where she now lives with her husband and son. It is here that her journey began with Spice Spoon, rooted in the cooking traditions of the women in her family.
From humble beginnings, her blog grew and was selected by The Independent, UK, as one of the world’s 50 Best Food Websites. Spice Spoon has evolved and is now the embodiment of Shayma’s multi-ethnic heritage and international upbringing. Through her international cookery workshops, supperclubs, articles, speaking engagements and stories, Shayma hopes to inspire you to cook food from an often misunderstood part of the globe.
Shayma believes that in cookery, there should be no borders. Her mission is simple – demystifying Silk Route cuisine and inspiring you to make the food she grew up eating. Shayma would be honoured if you chose Spice Spoon as your gateway to Silk Route cuisine.
