A story straight from the heart, with pure recipes only
At sixty years of age, our father Shahzad Kazmi is in the prime of his life. After decades of being a host at multiple reputable restaurants and hotels, while at home cooking the most wonderful dishes, we helped to make his biggest dream come true: to open his restaurant, together with his kids. Hills & Mills became a crowded little gem where Papa’s guest fall under the spell of his modern, Indian cuisine. The idea of Papa Kazmi’s pure cook book is to bring a little bit of that magic into people’s homes. Guided by our most precious memories, we will take you on a trip to show you these wholesome, healthy and delicious recipes.
