Originally from Ilam, a Kurdish city in the western part of Iran, Tayebeh grew up with a fusion of influences from her Iranian grandmother and Iraqi mother. Tayebeh’s work and studies traverse architecture in Iran to child-care here in Melbourne, but her true passion is to share her traditional Kurdish cuisine with fellow food-lovers. As an experienced cooking instructor at social enterprise, Free to Feed, Tayebeh teaches Persian food and culture, taking guests on a journey through the cardamom filled streets of Iran whilst sharing her creative and delicious Vegan menu.
