My name is Dil Afroz Sayda. I have loved cooking ever since I was little. I have a special interest in baking & desserts. I work as a culinary artist in several TV programs.
I’ve worked as a Culinary expert and recipe writer as well as in cooking reality shows and a oven and microwave workshop. I received “Gunijon Shonmanona”award as a culinary artist from Bangladesh Cultural Forum.
I’ve already made a facebook page and website called Sayda’s Kitchen where I organize my recipes through albums.
I want to establish a cooking institute in the future. I want to preserve my recipes for the future generation. I intend on doing that by making a youtube channel and publishing a book. I sincerely hope people can benefit from my recipes.
Currently I’m doing a Diploma in Culinary Art & Catering Management at Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation (NHTTI). I completed M.Sc. in Related Art under Dhaka University.
I did Food Hygiene & Sanitation course from NHTTI. I also completed Cake Decoration course from New York Cake Academy and passed Food & Beverage Production (Cooking) and Food Processing & Preservation under BTED.
