HEAD COOK: Zahra (Leili) Malakooti Khah
COMPETITION: World Recipe Championship
A little about me… I love to cook since I was a teenager.
Cooking for me is an art and learning is my motivation fuel to act. I love pushing myself to be creative and go out of my comfort zone. This part of my personality guide me toward creating my fusion recipes. The main characteristic of my food is deliciousness, health and beauty. When I want to create a recipe, I think as a check and painter. I am very passionate to compete in food champion. I am sure I will learn a lot from other competitors and bring something unique to the table. My mom who was The master of cooking and baking is base of my inspiration.
My creations are inspired by the rich, delicious and healthy recipes from my culture and birth country, Iran. My baking and cooking style developed over last 15 years based on a different region that we lived. I grasp a delicious taste, a unique technique and different use of spices from each culture we pass by. Each culture has different experiences of a thousand years history background. I have a tremendous joy when I cook and bake recipes from different part of the world.
One of my skill is converting everyday recipes to a keto-friendly recipe. The magic part is still rich in flavor, mouth-watery, eye-catchy and tasty.
