At the age of seven, Hawa Hassan, a former model, fled Somalia and was separated from her family as a result of the Somali Civil War. Fifteen years later, she was finally able to reunite with her mother and siblings and cook the meals she remembered and missed from her childhood. From this came the inspiration for Basbaas, a line of sauces inspired by traditional Somali flavors. By turning her love for Somali cuisine into a small business, Hawa has created a daily reminder for both who she is and where she came from.
