About Us

Hadeem means “the echoes” in Hebrew. Hadeem represents a culture and cuisine of diaspora.


We are the echoes of families. We are the echoes of communities created and lost. We are the echoes.

We are Hadeem.


What is California Jewish Cuisine?

California-Jewish cuisine celebrates stories of adaptation and appreciation. California cuisine pulls seasonal bounty sourced from local farms dedicated to the craft. Not dissimilarly, Jews have always cooked what was available – out of abundance or scarcity – wherever they lived. These dishes evolved as the diaspora grew, much like an echo.


Hadeem is an echo of Jewish diasporic cooking expressed through skills learned in Bay Area kitchens. While we aren’t exclusively Jewish, nor claim ownership of dishes, our goal is to tell these stories the best way we know how: through food.
