Announcement: Tayybeh Sponsoring Immerse Gala
In less than a year since its first pop-up dinner, Tayybeh, a social enterprise that supports newly-arrived Syrian women in Vancouver, has taken the city by storm. With glowing reviews in every media outlet–from The Globe and Mail to The Georgia Straight –Tayybeh offers beautiful and authentic dishes from across Syria while giving the women chefs access to an income and financial independence. All while doing something they love: cooking delicious homestyle Syrian food!
The word “tayybeh” in Arabic is the feminine term for “kind,” and in the colloquial Levantine dialect it means “delicious.” So far Tayybeh have lived up to this name. In fact, the dishes are so delicious, Western Living Magazine presented Tayybeh with the “Foodies of the Year” Award for 2017.
We are delighted to present you with some of our favourite Syrian dishes! If you’re familiar with the cuisine, you will know this is an occasion not to be missed. And if you have not tried the Middle East’s most delicious food traditions, this is your chance.
