Noor is the author of the light-hearted and amusing travel memoirs ‘Big Cities and Mountain Villages’, ‘Falafels and Bedouins’ and ‘Christmas Lights and Carnevale’. She loves the simple things in life - good food, good company and a house full of fur-kids. When she’s not waiting hand and foot on her cat and dog (who must have been emperors in a previous life), Noor likes to try new recipes. Amazingly, her husband tries them all. Even if they don’t resemble the pictures in the recipe books. Between writing, playing with the fur-kids and experimenting in the kitchen, Noor successfully avoids doing housework.
