Noor Murad joins us on Saturday for our weekend of vegetarian and vegan feasts at The Wilderness Kitchen

Noor Murad is a Bahraini-British chef born and raised in the Middle East to a Bahraini dad and English mum, meaning she loves tahini and Victoria sponge in equal measure. She has 16 years industry experience and has worked in Bahrain, New York, Hawaii and Germany before eventually relocating to London in 2016 to join the Ottolenghi family. Noor is the head of the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen and co-author of “Ottolenghi Test Kitchen: Shelf Love” as well as the second Ottolenghi Test Kitchen book, coming out this September. She has also developed recipes for Ottolenghi Flavour, Falastin, Ottolenghi’s Masterclass series as well as various other Ottolenghi online publications. Her Bahraini roots play a strong part in her cooking with Arabic, Persian and Indian flavours making a prominent appearance in her recipes.
