Hey, I'm Madeeha Anwar!
How was 'Now Delish' Born?
In addition to my own bakes, I also share authentic Pakistani recipes that I inherited from my mother, reflecting the rich culinary heritage of my upbringing. Be sure to try my ghee cake, nankhatai or cakerusk.
Behind each recipe shared on this blog lies a tale of trials and triumphs, marking the evolution of my culinary skills. I take great pride in every recipe you'll find here, and I hope they bring as much joy to your kitchen as they do to mine!

Some Common Questions
No, I haven't. I've acquired knowledge from my mom, friends, extensive travel experiences, and my extensive collection of baking and cooking books. I constantly experiment with recipes from these sources and have learned a great deal from them. In summary, I consider myself a self-taught baker and cook, lacking formal education in the field.
I am the photographer responsible for all the pictures on the blog, and I absolutely love it. The entire process, from arranging the food props to setting up the lights and capturing the images, is truly mesmerizing to me.
I utilize two Sony cameras for my photography: the primary Sony A7C camera for main shots and the secondary Sony ZV-1F camera for process shots. To illuminate my scenes, I rely on artificial light, specifically the Godox SL200 W II LED light. Additionally, I edit my pictures using Lightroom.
Absolutely! I value your input and am always eager to tailor my content based on your feedback. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected] with your requests, and I'll do my best to accommodate them.
It's definitely not easy to manage a full-time job and run the Now Delish blog simultaneously. Both roles demand different skills, expectations, and goals, making it challenging to juggle between them. Feeling overwhelmed at times is completely natural. However, I'm incredibly grateful to have these talents and opportunities. Journalism is my passion, and baking is my love. I can't imagine doing anything else in life!
That's an intriguing question! The majority of my food prop collection comes from thrift stores, as I find the items there to be truly unique and priceless. I also enjoy scouring online stores for old and antique utensils. Occasionally, I can't resist picking up pieces from regular retail stores as well (regardless of the price tags). In short, I have a weakness for fine crockery and can't resist adding to my collection whenever I find something special.
