Mo’s kitchen is started by Mo, a Syrian entrepreneur chef. He was born and raised in Aleppo, Syria. He came to Eindhoven multiple years ago as one of the 11 million Syrians who have fled their homes since the outbreak of the war in March 2011.
Mo left everything but his memories and his passion for Traditional food. Cooking his traditional food reminds him of his family, his country, and who he is. He started to cook when he was 16. He helped at his family business. They had an Arabic sweets shop and a catering service. Mo learned from his grandmother mainly. She taught Mo how to cook with very simple equipment using special skills.
When in the Netherlands, he started with making dinner for friends, who offered to pay him in return for it. Then he started recognizing that’s normal in the West Culture and the idea came up to make a business out of it.
Then, he started cooking for birthday parties and festivals. The vegan falafel meal was very popular! Finally, it became a catering company and got offers from the TU/e. Then, the covid measurements pushed him in another direction and he started collaborating with Social Deal.
Mo is specialized in Middle Eastern food. He makes main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. Later, he started connecting with vegan and vegetarian people. Only he found out that vegan food often lacks special flavors and taste. There his new concept developed: Tasteful vegan food from different countries!
His love for cooking and his willingness to share with the people mainly drives him. The big differences in cultures inspired him to share. When people were first trying his food they thought it was very special. Therefore, it’s not only about the food but also about the experience and the conversation.
Mo loved to cook Aleppo Cuisine, but he also prepared many dishes from Lebanese Turkish and Middle Eastern kitchens. His favorite dish is Hummus because it’s simple but full of flavor and always makes you smile, just like Mo.
