Throwing Together Quarantine Meals w/ Hawa Hassan

Overwhelmed by cooking but still want to enjoy flavorful meals at home? Today we’ll be talking about throw-together quarantine meals for nourishment and flavor. We also talk with Hawa Hassan, the founder of Basbaas Sauce and author of In Bibi’s Kitchen, about what she’s been cooking during quarantine and her favorite key ingredients for flavor. 

Hawa Hassan is the founder and CEO of Basbaas Sauce and author of the forthcoming cookbook, In Bibi’s Kitchen from Ten Speed Press. Inspired by the women of Africa, the book is a collection of recipes & stories from the kitchens of bibis, or grandmothers, from African countries and beyond. In 2014, Hassan’s line of small-batch, hand-crafted organic condiments was born. Inspired by the flavors of her native Somalia, Basbaas’ product line includes a dark tamarind sauce that defines sweet and sour, and a nubbly cilantro chutney with herbal, citric depth and just the right amount of heat.

  • Throwing together quarantine meals for nourishment.
  • How Hawa came into the food and entrepreneurship world.
