The Inspiration Behind Farah Trading Co
The story of the original Farah
My grandmother, Farah, was born in Hong Kong to a family of Jewish Iraqi traders, importing and selling goods across the Middle East and Asia, tracing their roots to the Sephardic diaspora from Portugal.
After making her final immigration to San Francisco in the 1930s, Farah's dinner table was always surrounded with food, drink and stories from all of the places her family had traveled through.
This blending of cultures and nostalgic connection to places and people through food and wine is at the heart of Farah Trading Co.
