I’m Hamed – a Persian chef, caterer and cooking instructor based in Melbourne, with years of experience in the kitchen.
I was born in Iran’s capital Tehran, migrated to Australia in 2012, and have called Melbourne home since. My life here still revolves around food and, in particular, sharing my Persian cultural and culinary heritage with the local Melbourne community.
I was previously running cooking classes with Free to Feed, a not-for-profit social enterprise cooking school that facilitated my first paid employment in Melbourne. Grateful for the support I’ve received from FTF and other like-minded initiatives, I have now launched a social enterprise of my own – Cafe Sunshine & SalamaTea – a cafe by day and restaurant by night, which employs and empowers other refugees, asylum seekers and new migrants facing the same difficulties I faced when I first came to Australia.
