We are so excited to introduce Brightland’s first Chef in Residence for Fall 2020: Meet Noreen Wasti. Noreen is a recipe developer, food stylist, writer, and content creator based in New York. Noreen attributes her love of cooking to her Pakistani heritage, childhood in Rhode Island and time abroad in the Middle East. “I love to cook, eat, and create. I am drawn to understanding and connecting the role food plays within culture and traditions,” she says.
Noreen cooks with intention, flavor and truly believes in the analog over digital (the Brightland ethos!). She will be conceptualizing special recipes for us each month which we look forward to sharing with the community, and will also share tips, how-tos and cooking demos. For her first Brightland recipe, Noreen has shared delightful Creamy Peach Popsicles with Olive Oil and Lemon Verbena. Read below for the summer treat you need to try.
“Pureed peaches with ALIVE is this delicious, bold combination that I found myself eating on its own with a spoon. Paired with creamy Greek yogurt, lemon verbena, lemon zest, and vanilla, this popsicle combo is fragrant, bright, and refreshing — exactly what I need on a warm summer day.” -Noreen Wasti
