Heena  Pistachio Meringue Stack with Rose Cream and Strawberries

Heena grew up in Bombay, India and now works in Waterloo, Canada as a technology/business analyst -- she calls her desk job yawn-inducing but we say: if it inspires this sort of gorgeous cooking and photography off hours (on her blog Tiffin Tales and here on food52), we'd like to meet more analysts. And get them to make us Tiramisu Crepe Cakes.

Clearly Heena has a knack for sweets, like the beauty above (her winning strawberry contest recipe Pistachio Meringue Stack with Rose Cream and Strawberries -- doesn't it look like cherubs should be hovering nearby, waiting to serve you a slice?). But she's also won us over with savory dishes like Lamb Kebabs with Mint Chutney and Slow Roasted Tomato and Mozzarella Galettes, both enthusiastic Editors' Picks. See more of Heena's recipes and fan her here.
