Pervaiz Shallwani is a Brooklyn-based journalist and classically trained cook whose work straddles the worlds of food and hard news. Sometimes, the two cross paths.   He co-hosts the New York CHOW Report on NY1, and writes frequently for The Wall Street Journal. He has worked as the Food Writer at Time Out New York, a Staff Writer at The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., and a reporter for Newsday. His work has also appeared in The Associated Press, Gourmet, The New York Times, New York Magazine and Rolling Stone.    Born in Toronto and raised in Chicago, Pervaiz Shallwani comes from a Pakistani family that takes pride in its cooking. Unfortunately, Pervaiz spent his childhood bypassing his mother’s nihari in favor of assimilating with fast food and quick meals. Then he took a home economics class at 11, got a journalism degree at the University of Missouri and a culinary one at the French Culinary Institute. Since, he has been experimenting with cooking and promises to eat anything (edible) at least once.
