Zubaida Tariq laid to rest in Karachi – Zubaida Appa Death

KARACHI: The famous cook, kitchen expert and television personality Zubaida Tariq passed away on Thursday night here in Karachi.

His brother Anwar Maqsood confirmed the sad news and added that the famous professional cook had been indisposed for a while.

Tariq’s funeral prayers were offered at the Sultan Mosque in the city’s Defense area after Friday prayers, after which she was buried in the nearby cemetery.

She achieved fame by doing culinary shows on television and writing cookbooks. His regular segments of culinary advice on several television channels were so popular that Zubaida ‘Aapa’ became a household name throughout Pakistan.

With a formal name that sounds like Mrs. Zubaida Tariq, Aapa made her television debut in 1996 when she was over 50 years old. His first program  Dalda Ka Dastarkhwan soon became a very popular evening engagement.

 

Tariq never wears an apron over her impeccably ironed saris, and she doesn’t test her recipes anymore.

 

Aapa had nine brothers, among them the playwright Anwar Maqsood, the author and poet Zehra Nigah, the designer Sughra Kazmi, and the late Fatima Surraiya Bajiya, a theater writer.

Aapa used to say that right after her marriage, from there on she moved to Lahore, she had no idea of ​​cooking, so the first meal she cooked at her in-laws’ house was ruined.

Curiously, she had tried to make karachi, a dish of chickpea flour, without the critical ingredient, yogurt, and threw it away.

To disguise her failure, she dressed and convinced her husband to take her to Chinese food, independent journalist Saba Imtiaz wrote in November 2017.
