Our partnership with À la table by Hanna reinforces our commitment to being your go-to destination for all your culinary needs. From everyday meals to special occasions, we are here to make every moment delicious and memorable, especially during the holidays.” – Judith Fetzer, President and Co-founder of Cook it

À la table by Hanna: The art of holiday hosting

À la table isn’t just about food; it’s a masterclass in food styling and creating grazing tables that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate. Their menu showcases top-quality cheeses, delectable cured meats, seasonal fruits, honeycomb, and an array of artisanal crackers and nuts. With a background in floristry, they seamlessly blend floral decor into their creations, turning every grazing table into a captivating work of art, perfect for any festive occasion.

“À la table is a brand that has grown through passion, hard work and an immense love for cheese. When I first started the business, my close friends and family thought the concept of cheese and charcuterie as a meal was definitely unique. Over the past 7 years, we have surpassed many milestones of growth, all while staying true to the essence of the business: food styling, hosting and eating lots of cheese!” – Hanna Hajilou, Founder of À la table

Hanna, the culinary genius behind À la table, is a proud Montrealer whose love for food and bringing people together is nothing short of inspiring. Raised in a family that treasured both food and togetherness, Hanna’s culinary journey began early. While most children awaited Saturday morning cartoons, she eagerly tuned in to Julia Child’s “Cooking with Master Chefs” show, drawing inspiration from culinary icons like Lidia Bastianich and Jacques Pépin. But it was the incomparable Julia Child who truly captured her heart.

For Hanna, food isn’t just about flavours and aromas; it’s about the vibrant colours, decadent tastes, and delightful scents that fill the air. Surrounded by food, flowers, and candlelit dinners throughout her life, Hanna decided to turn her passion into a profession. Her mission: to create stunning, colourful spreads of delectable food that bring people together, fostering moments of celebration, sharing, laughter, and love.
