Here are the finished Nokshi Pitha - #bangladeshi pastries made with a cooked rice dough, which is handcut into intricate patterns then fried & soaked in syrup. Made by mum with a little help from us! Crunchy deliciousness! 馃槏#pastry #traditional #FridayMotivation

I love your food tweets 馃挄. They are always so delicious looking! I am fasting for Muharram today so I really wanted some Bangladeshi Bhorthas. I made an aloo one, a white fish one and a tomato one. That combination of red onion, coriander leaves & finger chillis is irreplaceable

Nothing beats a Bangladeshi Dawat/feast. Cousin鈥檚 came over so we enjoyed classic fish curries, lamb & potato curry & my fave - chicken roast with pulao. Sister in law cooked everything & I made Firni (ground rice pudding) for dessert! #bangladeshifood #weekend

Freshly steamed Choi pitha (ground rice dumplings) with ghur - date molasses is one of my favourite things ever. You can find out more about pithas - rice based sweets & savouries, in my article in @whetstone_mag new S Asia mag Rasa. #bangladeshifood

Mezbani Mangsho all done, after slow cooking for two hours. This Chittagong classic beef curry is excellent with plain rice, or porota. Developing recipe for a special project. Will share soon! #bangladeshifood #chittagong #weekend

From recent experiences of being on the other side of the interview process, I cannot emphasise enough how much homework can steer the course of interviews. Put in the work and your interview will shine. Not enough and your disrespect is obvious.
