Bahraini-born Noor is a chef whose international work experience eventually brought her to the Ottolenghi family. She developed recipes for the books Falastin and ‘Flavour’, as well as for Ottolenghis Masterclass series and other online Ottolenghi publications.

Having trained in New York, Noor became one of the creative forces at the heart of the Ottolenghi test kitchen where she’s been working since 2016.
