What's special about Food?
Besides using our Food Items below to raise funds for our 2nd Chance Job Foundation, Food is a great Ice-Breaker, a great unifier and an effective control weapon many smart mothers secretly use to keep the family within the fold. I know what large families are like- coming from a large family of 10 siblings there was much disagreement and strife, but not at the dinner table which was declared a no-anger zone! It wasn't much fun for me as the only Pescatarian Vegetarian, but I got used to my 'feast' of just rice and lentils at Christmas and other celebrations. Early on in college, I took a cooking course conducted by female instructors trying to get out from under the control of their wealthy husbands- the ruling class of privileged Nawabs of Hyderabad! It's where I developed a special 'nose' for blending and mixing ethnic ingredients and creating Guilt-Free Fusion Food creations that cater to your 5 senses. They are highly aromatic, linger on your taste-buds and are my very own concoctions from a complicated heritage- a blend of North, South, East and West -Indian culture, with a hint of British, Asian, Jewish and 2 centuries of exotic rich Iran/Arabian/Pakistani/Mughlai cuisine thrown in- .
Its Food like you have never tasted before!
Although I'm a lifelong pesca-vegetarian, you WILL find a few gourmet meat and poultry recipes here- but know that having never tasted, touched or handled any meat- especially after watching animals being slaughtered in our own backyards- I only distance-cook by directing the process like an orchestra conductor!
It will take many tries to perfect these gastronomic creations, but even though you may have ALL the ingredients, if you don't have the right weather conditions or the right pots and pans- forget any good outcomes as I guarantee it will not turn out the same! But watch out for my SpiceQueen Cook Book in the works but coming soon...
Instead of trying out my recipes, I suggest you order a sample first- you will relish the rare gastronomic experience, enjoy the rich aromas, and read delightful memories and stories of people and things past AND more importantly, we set aside 50% of the profits to my new 2nd Chance Job Foundation!
For starters, feel free to Order my Fragrant fresh Plant-based Chutneys, 'Just Heat 'n' Eat' Curry Masalas, Special Veggie Foogaths, delicious Mango & Fruit Lassies (local Marin County only), traditional Spicy Party Poppers & the special Xmas treats my entire family waits patiently for but don't get until the end of each year!
Food is full of natural and exotic colors and we view food as central to weaving together the value of community, health, history, culture, lineage and the environment. - From Potatoes to Okra to Eggplant, Coconuts or Beans, we invite you to share the various ways you prepare foods with ingredients readily available in your own pantry and family stories you would love to share.

Bon Appetit, Healthy & Happy Ice-Breaking, Spread the Peace, Enjoy your Differences and remember there is only one Race with multiple colors- The Human Race!
