A Little About The Chef Eemy
Chef Eemy started during the beginning of the pandemic. Emaan Rawji is the owner of Chef Eemy. She was supposed to be in a hairdressing school in London, but due to covid her plans changed and she was quarantined in Karachi. She comes from a family of AMAZING cooks and was scared thinking that her food will always be compared to theirs.
Although, being stuck at home left her with no option but to explore the kitchen and finally learn how to cook.
Due to the fact that there was so much time, she had the chance to experiment with cooking for her parents and brother. She started off by making biryani, then made crepes and pizza and documented it on the personal Instagram page. Because of all the praising, from friends and family, Eman created an official page where she posts all of her recipes. Almost a year and at least a hundred recipes later, Chef Eemy has managed to become an easy go-to cooking blog.
It started as quarantine comfort food and now it isn’t afraid to explore unique cuisines. Through Chef Eemy’s Instagram, she shares recipes for special occasions, holidays, and much more. All of this is because of the encouragement she gets from her followers, friends and family. Her goal is to provide even the most difficult dish in the simplest way possible.
