Message from

Rita Zahara

Hello everyone,

Please let me warmly welcome everyone to Che Zahara’s humble website. This is a special tribute to my dear grandmother, the late Che Zahara Noor Mohamed; my beloved late mother, Hajjah Zabidah; and my supportive father, Haji Mohamed Nazeer Alal Mohamed Rasull, about whom I am blessed and thankful that he may witness this milestone in my life.

This website will make the dreams of my late grandma and my late mother come true, as their recipes can now be shared with everyone. As such, it is also lovingly dedicated to my family, my sisters and all my loyal customers and supporters.

Through this site, you will find stories of Che Zahara, Hajjah Zabidah and myself, and of course about my cookies, food and latest cookbooks. You will get breaking news on special deals for my cookies and about when are my masterclasses with invited celebrity chefs will take place.

To my grandmother, thank you for leaving behind your legacy. To my mother, thank you for your love, compassion and guidance. To my dad, thank you for always inspiring me to do my best. To my loyal customers, thank you for your endless support. I hope you will continue to support Che Zahara and me in continuing to savour the taste of these cookies made with much love and joy.

Happy shopping and eating,

Rita Zahara Mohamed Nazeer
