Customer Testimonial



Hey Sandeep,

Just reaching out to say I am EXTREMELY grateful for your spice package. That is going to make the perfect present to a couple of my friends who like to cook. The garam masala is my favorite!

Your dedication to quality is inspirational. I've never had spices taste this good before. Especially the turmeric.

I will be sharing the warm soothing feeling I get from these with my friends so they can make amazing meals with them too. Last night I made veal liver and onions sauteed in your ghee, turmeric, garam masala, and cayenne pepper. I added some fresh rosemary from my bush in the backyard as well. All of my friends loved it! Couldn't believe I got them to eat liver.

In health,
Anthony Benedettini
