Farida began to cook regularly when, aged 25, she moved to California from her home in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Food is an important part of Azerbaijani culture and Farida found that the best way to eat the delicious Azeri food of her childhood was to cook it herself. Today her online Azerbaijani cookbook is so popular that she is working on a real world cookbook as well.

On her website you can learn to cook traditional food like Pilaff and Baklava as well as Azeri versions of soups, stews, eggs and many more delicious looking meals.
