About MAMA TEAV
Say hello to the magical lady behind Mama Teav's Hot Garlic. It wasn’t until friends and family begged Mama Teav for her homemade Hot Garlic that she started jarring it up and giving it out to the people. Now, Mama Teav’s famous Hot Garlic can be yours too. But don’t fool—this is no ordinary mama.
Mama Teav came to America in 1979 as a Cambodian refugee with little to nothing. War and genocide had destroyed her past life forcing Mama Teav to escape the only country she ever knew and forge a new life in America.
One thing Mama Teav did hold onto was her love for cooking. The kitchen was her comfort zone, and food was Mama Teav’s way of showing love. She often made dishes from scratch—from pickled vegetables to her famous Hot Garlic.
No matter what mama cooks or who she cooks for, she does so with a sense of love, pride, and style. Come take a seat at mama’s table. There’s always room for one more.
