About hameds persian kitchen

Meet Hamed Allahyari, the founder of Hamed’s Persian Kitchen.

Hamed was born in Iran’s capital, Tehran, migrated to Australia in 2012, and has called Melbourne home since. His life revolves around food and sharing his Persian cultural and culinary heritage with the local community.

Hamed previously ran cooking classes with Free to Feed, a not-for-profit social enterprise cooking school. It was his first paid employment in Melbourne. Thanks to this experience, he was inspired to open up a similar enterprise to empower refugees, asylum seekers, and new migrants facing the same problems he did when he first arrived in Australia.

Hamed is sharing some of his favourite recipes. These are some of the most treasured possessions he took with him when he left Iran and settled into his new life in Australia. These recipes are Hamed’s connection to his past and his future in this beautiful country.
