Syrian cuisine is one of the oldest and most revered culinary traditions in the world, with a vast range of rich and flavourful dishes. Our unique social enterprise is only made possible through the impressive talents of our incredible newcomer Syrian women chefs. We aim to empower these remarkable women while highlighting the delicious, healthy, and unique fare of their homeland.

With the support of communities across Vancouver, the first women-run social enterprise employing Syrian newcomer women has beaten all the odds for business success in 2020. Despite the collapse of the catering industry, Tayybeh launched a line of packaged products, forged new partnerships, delivered fresh and frozen meals, and served over 5500 meals to the vulnerable in the Downtown Eastside and beyond.
It’s often said that kitchens are the heart of the home, and at Tayybeh this couldn’t be more true. While the kitchen plays an intrinsic role in our success as a catering company, its significance runs deeper than just simple necessity.
The Middle East is home to some of the world's most delicious dishes, and Syrian cuisine is the crown jewel of regional specialties. The diversity of Middle Eastern food doesn’t fall under one definable cuisine - it crosses borders and blends cultures. While many people associate Middle Eastern food with meat-heavy dishes - in particular lamb - in Syria, our dishes are actually very much the opposite.
