Asil Rashid is a Sudanese-born Canadian, who has lived most of her life in Dubai, U.A.E. Having worked as an environmental and sustainability consultant for most of her professional career, she has always maintained a love of writing. A food network-taught cook and a new mother trying to come to terms with this crazy ride called motherhood. Asil is also a budding gardener, a lover of Italian food, and a big believer that anything can be made from scratch in the kitchen. When not running after her daughter, Asil can be found in her patio garden having a much needed cup of coffee, or making a batch of almond milk. Check her blog: www.thebountifulnow.com.
