My aspiration is to bring people together through conversation, connection, and friendship around our communal love of food.

Hawa Hassan, a James Beard award winner is a culinary triple threat: dynamic chef, TV personality and entrepreneur. She's the founder of Basbaas Sauce, a line of condiments inspired by her home country of Somalia, a fast-growing brand that has been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, Eater and more. Her first cookbook-meets-travelogue, In Bibi's Kitchen, shares recipes and stories from grandmothers—or bibis—in eight African countries, bordering the Indian Ocean.
