The inception of Homevyte
Azad Tayar, one of Homevyte's original co-founders, was just eight months old when he immigrated to the US. His mother maintained much of our cultural customs of sharing, regularly cooking extra food to give away to our neighbors. Kurdish food was new to these neighbors, but they loved it so much that they often asked her if they could pay her for the authentic dishes.
In 2017 Azad came up with the idea of making and selling homemade food and we immediately saw the potential in connecting communities through the sharing of food. Although Azad was initially reserved about inviting strangers into our home for meals as we did in Kurdistan, sharing and experiencing the culture and authentic home cooking is in our blood. Sharing food and conversation could be our contribution to the growth and interconnectedness of American communities. We hope to bring everyone together as a people and a country once again! We offer pickup and delivery, but we encourage Trusted HomeCooks to invite guests into their homes; hence the evolution of the name: homevyte from home envyte.
