Some people read auras, I read spices.

A SPICE BLEND

" Time and Taste in a pinch"

Spices are a reminder of selflessness. You roast them, toast them, chop them, pound them, fry them and selflessly they give up their flavor, like Mother Nature’s unconditional love. 

There is something very special in creating a spice blend! It evokes connections to emotions, senses and people.One is recognizing the characteristics of each spice , then matching and balancing it with others to birth the blend !

WHAT BLEND ARE YOU?

When meeting with people to create their special blend we connect on a deeper level. Sometimes a certain spice will bring back a strong memory. One client rubbed a few fennel seeds in her palm : The licorice aroma reminded her of her grandmother.

At a typical spice whispering session, an arrangement of 9 to 11 different spices are presented in a spice mandala. One is encouraged to smell, touch and taste the various spices. Soon a feel about the person and their connection to food is established.

 Within two weeks their individual blend is created and delivered.

THE COUPLE BLEND

Bridal couples, family reunions and weddings are inspiring and fun. The spice blend becomes a cherished memory and event.

Spice Whispered couple blends as wedding favors are unique. Like a fingerprint , no two people are alike; each has a specific combination of elemental energies that they need to respect in order to achieve balance. A great way for new beginnings!

SPICE UP MEETINGS

The Spice Workshop is innovative, educational and fun. It is a great way to break away from monotony and keep the team inspired. It helps create focus and concentration by providing employees a creative boost. At the end of the day every one needs to slow the mind so that one can recharge and renew their energy.

MY INVOLVEMENT IN...

EDUCATION

I have been a culinary teacher for more than three decades, teaching classes that were inspired around plant based, sustainable and health conscious cuisine. 

Being a certified yoga teacher helps me connect with people on a deeper level. 

Honoring The People and Moment is the basis of my life, food and teaching philosophy.

NON PROFIT

I have had the opportunity to be part of CHEFS, a program dedicated to fighting homelessness through employment in the food services industry.

In the 80's through the YMCA in San Francisco, I helped launch a food service training program which assisted refugees from different parts of the world like Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Ethiopia and Afghanistan to settle in the States.

 

HOSPITALITY

I have been involved with the food industry for about four decades. I grew up in India in an amazing family with a wonderful balance of the old traditions and the modern. 

A graduate degree in catering technology and applied nutrition from The Institute of Hotel Management in Mumbai, India kicked off a deep interest in foods, nurturing and nourishing the body, mind and spirit. 

I focus a lot of my current time in the art of blending spices and its use in daily life.

Spices, they resonate with me. They heal. They flavor. They whisper through food.
