Our story starts a few years ago, during a visit with my friend Fatthi to our home country to Yemen in 2014 – Fatthi’s mom baked the most unforgettable date cookies, the same kind she had made many times throughout Fatthi’s childhood. With each bite, we could taste the familiar flavours of home, and we lamented that we couldn’t find anything quite like these cookies in Canada.
Date cookies are a popular treat throughout the Mediterranean, often prepared for special occasions or to share over tea and coffee when friends and neighbours visit.They are baked with love by mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers (and fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers too!), and family recipes are passed down from generation to generation.
In 2017, we launched Fateel with the hope that everyone, everywhere can truly enjoy our delicious cookies, home-baked in wood fired stone ovens using rich, wholesome ingredients found in the Mediterranean.
Each flavour has been carefully developed, using inspiration from old family recipes.
We’re proud to share our cookies with you, and – whether you’re trying them for the first time or grew up eating your family’s beloved recipe we know you’ll love them as much as we do.
