Tanabel is a catering and events company that employs refugee women with exceptional talent in the kitchen. We host gatherings that celebrate the rich and sophisticated cuisine of the Middle East and offer guests the opportunity to get to know the food and people of countries that are often objectified and misunderstood. These authentic, generous and delicious meals allow our cooks to share a taste of home with their new communities and provide them with meaningful and empowering employment.
Hannah believes in the power of food to connect us to memory and family, to overcome cultural barriers and to unite us in our shared appreciation of the delicious. A classically trained chef, she’s worked at Michelin starred restaurants in New York and Paris, as a wine and cheese importer, a food writer, editor, consultant and entrepreneur.
