My name is Francis Perez, and I have been living in Tennessee since my childhood. Both my parents were immigrants. My Father was from Sri Lanka, and my mother was from Egypt. I grew up with curry based food which had a lot of spices in them.
When I was about 12, my uncle gifted me a book about spices. I was so fascinated by them and spent hours and hours reading about it. This may sound weird, but my mother used to cook amazing dishes, and I thought I could help her with my knowledge of spices.
As I grew older, I became more accustomed to its uses and realized that Americans have many misconceptions about spices. Last year, I graduated in Culinary Management from the Art Insitute of Nashville.
During my time in college, I decided to start an e-commerce platform that sells spices from all around the world.
But first, through this blog, I want to educate people of the multiple benefits that spices have to offer. I also plan to share common American dishes which can make use of spices.
