You will enjoy Tina’s family recipes that have been passed down for generations. From grandma’s sugar of love, to my father’s pinch of wisdom, with insanity hugs and a drizzle of kisses from my loving son, Adam, makes Tina Hassan’s kitchen a whole lot of fun to cook anytime.
For many years, cooking has been my passion. Since a little girl growing up in Carthage, Mississippi, I always enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and helping my grandmother. We would prepare food for all types of events, you name it, and we were there bringing delicious meals.
Approaching college, I could not figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Did I want to be a nurse, teacher or lawyer? I wanted to help people and I loved to entertain so I knew I wanted to reach people, but in what way? During my freshman year is where cooking became my therapy. Being away from my grandmother’s hot meals, to eating fast foods was devastating! I began to cook for myself and my fellow roommates. This is when I knew I wanted to become a cook and share my unique style of flavors and recipes.
After becoming a top 6 finalist on Season 12 of the Hit Series Hell’s Kitchen I began to focus on different types of gourmet appetizers, meals, and desserts. Each one of these recipes was inspired by different experiences in my life. I hope you enjoy and thanks to everyone for their influences and continuous support!
