Hi, I'm Simone
In 2014 our 5-year-old Autistic son was diagnosed with cancer, Ganglio Neuroblastoma. As parents, Stephen & I then embarked on a mission to make our family's diet healthier. We started clearing our cupboards of anything that had preservatives or additives in them.
Spice Mixes were a big part of our cooking and I threw out all the store brought ones as they had fillers, anti-caking agents in them - and a lot of other things in them that I didn't like the look of as I read the ingredient list on each package.
It was then I dedicated myself into making my own herb & spice blends for our family - not only did I love it but I also feel as though it saved me from myself and gave me a diversion from what was happening in our lives.
The tumor was removed and our son has now been in remission for 6 years. In 2015 I decided I wanted to share my creations with others, I got my food licence and started attending local markets where I lived at the time.
It amazes me that from a horrible life-changing experience I found my passion.
My goal has always been to create herb and spice blends using Australian grown ingredients - and it's a work in progress!
I either grow or source directly from Australian growers our ingredients. With the help of my family, we peel, grate, slice, and dehydrate garlic, turmeric, beetroot, ginger - whatever ingredient we need.
Our home smells amazing!
Hi I'm Steve!
The taste tester, guinea pig and on one occasion an unsuspecting victim of a very hot spicy meat rub.
We are a great team, Simone makes all the herb & spice blends and I make the sauces.
I'm also the one who gives the final thumbs up!
