About Yasmin

Yasmin Khan is a best-selling and award-winning author, broadcaster and campaigner, who is passionate about sharing people’s stories through food.

Her work sits on the intersection of food, travel and politics and her critically-acclaimed books, The Saffron Tales, Zaitoun and Ripe Figs use everyday stories to human connection to challenge stereotypes of the Middle East and celebrate beauty in places more commonly associated with conflict.

Yasmin is a regular media commentator, appearing on flagship shows as Newsnight, the Today programme and Women’s Hour, and has written for publications such as the Guardian, the Telegraph, the Financial Times, New Statesmen, Saveur, Afar, and Roads and Kingdoms amongst others. Prior to writing books, Yasmin trained in Law and was a human rights campaigner for a decade, running national and international campaigns on poverty and human rights.
