Female Foodpreneurs: Fareha Raida Islam on her love for chocolate and cheese

Awestruck by the popular movie ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ as a child and engrossed by my love for chocolate and cheese, I had dreamt of opening my very own chocolate and cheese factory one day.

I invested that year in culturing my...

Female Foodpreneurs: Sumnoon Humaira on her love affair with the kitchen and Boxed

My love affair with the kitchen began at an early age. I began baking at the age of four, and by the time I was in middle school, cooking had become both a hobby and a stress reliever for me.  In 2009 when I moved to the US with my family, I automatically became the resident cook. I enjoyed cooking but at the beginning, I took on the role mostly because I didn’t want my...

The story of Crumble begins in 2016, right here in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in my home kitchen.

I enjoyed preparing baked goods for my friends and family, and soon people who were invited to my home, started requesting I bake for them on different occasions and that led to the birth of Crumble. At first,...

Hello, I’m Nashra! Spending time with loved ones, eating good food, keeping fit, helping people and being a valuable member of community are some of my top priorities in life.

Female foodpreneurs: Fareeha Chowdhury on building Sugarrush Cupcakery

  My journey with food started early on watching my mom bake and cook. Born in Bangkok, a short stint immigrating to the States and back, along with a whole bunch of travelling later, these experiences heavily influenced my palette. Plus, having an extended family full of enthusiastic foodies surely helped. I was always the one cooking for friends as a teen and the designated desserts baker for family dawats.  After finishing my undergraduate degree...
