Harvest Community Foods Gives a Supplier Shout Out to Tayybeh Syrian Food

Scout works with a lot of local restaurants to get the word out about the cool and delicious things they’re doing, but they couldn’t do what they do without access to awesome ingredients. To get what they need, culinary creatives depend on personal networks of passionate artisans, farmers and producers who often work hard without ever seeing the glory they deserve. Since it’s always good to recognize those who have your back, we bring you the Supplier Shout Out!

Today, we hit up neighbourhood grocer and noodle spot, Harvest Community Foods, to find out about how one local supplier stocking their shelves is making an invaluable impact on a entire community of women…

Which one of your suppliers do you want to give a shout out to? Tayybeh Syrian Food.

What does this supplier supply you with? Their Mhammara Sweet Red Pepper Spread is available to purchase at Harvest Community Foods.

What do you suggest pairing with this particular item? Pair it with fresh veggies!

What makes this supplier so special? We love what founder Nihal Elwan is doing. She is putting Syrian food on the map for Canadians. Tayybeh Foods is a catering team composed of female chefs from Syria. With goals of providing women financial independence through employment and social integration in the community, Tayybeh does all this through serving up delicious homemade Syrian eats using local ingredients and family recipes.
