Hi, I'm Haya Bishouty
I'm Palestinian by blood, Jordanian by nationality with a bit of Greek, Emirati and Egyptian by residency.
I'm the proud daughter of THE best parents, the best friend of the greatest sister, the aunt to an incredible nephew, the wife of the coolest dude, and the mama of 3 beautiful cats!
I've officially been given the honorable title of the community Teta (grandma) who loves to feed everyone. A title I hold very close to my heart.
How did Haya's Kitchen begin?
At the heart and soul of it all, Haya's Kitchen is an educational concept that creates awareness for all the beautiful flavours of Palestine (both known and unknown), and continues the stories of our ancestors.
It all began with my sufra dinners, with the aim of spreading the tales and traditions of authentic Palestinian food. People came together around the table to meet new faces, listened to the stories of Palestine and tasted the flavors of the homeland. The dinners are still going strong.
In 2020, Haya's Kitchen expanded with the Makhbaz and Mouneh collection, which celebrates all the ancestral traditions of baked goods and preserves. And in 2022, interactive pop ups, cooking workshops and community experiences came to life.
New paths continue to develop each day and I can't wait to see where Haya's Kitchen is going to go.
