A little research and planning before you leave and you can ensure every trip, big or small,  becomes a dream vacation.

A Little About Me…

I come from an extremely diverse family with members from India, China, Indonesia, the Netherlands and the complete Caribbean diaspora. Learning about different cultures and food has always been of interest to me. I think it’s because I was exposed to so much as a child when visiting family would come or we would go to visit family in different countries. This interest grew and developed as I got older to learn even about cultures that weren’t in my family tree.

As the world has gotten smaller because of the internet and evil people have wreaked a lot of heartache and damage in the world, some people run to their corners out of fear or ignorance, I am the opposite. I don’t judge an entire culture of people based on the actions of a few crazy individuals, as I wouldn’t want to be judged as a representative of my country, but instead as an individual. I wanted to learn about people, culture, traditions and foods I knew nothing about.

As a trained chef, I wanted to use my experience and training to educate people about different cultures using the vehicle I knew best – food! Breaking Bread with international recipes and even better with people of different cultures is the easiest way to do my little part to break down biases and encourage tolerance.

I later became a culinary instructor and was involved in a program teaching culinary classes in an after school program. I was surprised how little exposure kids have to different foods, even in a city as diverse and multi cultural as NYC. I’ve met adults who have never tasted a mango! To me, this is part of the problem and what creates intolerance when people know nothing about each other.

This has contributed to my goal to educate about different people’s cultures and histories using the vehicle of food. What better way for both kids and adults to learn – than by taking a fun cooking class or trying a new recipe and loving it?
