GUIDE: Aisha Silim
GUIDE BIO: Aisha Silim is a food-obsessed writer based in Toronto, and is originally from the Yemeni diaspora of East Africa. Her ancestors left Hadhramaut, Yemen in the mid-20th century because they got tired of the food shortages, and have been global nomads ever since. In her previous career, she was a Middle East journalist and came to Toronto via Kenya, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and England. Aisha has an interest in issues of food, race, and gender; and loves showcasing the restaurants of immigrants and people of colour on her blog at www.saltandsaffron.com.
