Reema Islam

Reema Islam has two main interests in life: healthy food and archaeology. Armed with a degree in Environmental Sciences, Reema works in sustainable heritage tourism while promoting conservation of the archeological heritage of Bangladesh. Reema’s hobby is cooking healthy food with local products, hosting grand dinners and feeding her hapless friends healthy food, which they gobble up despite claiming they don’t like health foods. Having grown up in the Mediterranean city of Benghazi, with a Pakistani mother and a Bangladeshi dad, Reema’s childhood platter was a diverse mix. She writes two columns in national English newspapers and a number of international magazines about archaeology, healthy food and the origin of regional ingredients. Reema loves cats, steaming cups of Indian chai (sans sugar!) and mystery novels.
