A loan of $10,000 helped me launch my spice line and to share my passion with the world.

Kanitha's story

Growing up in a communist country, life for me was plain, with rules & order.
‘Monkey around’ was always in my mind !

Bay area was an inspiration with diversity charm, & uniqueness.

A Native of Cambodia, The thing that makes me happiest, is cooking and making my own spices. The smile on someone's face after enjoying something I make, is the best feeling in the world. My daughters are 5 and 7, and I try to give them the same experience of food I had growing up.

I grew up surrounded by different cultures, I was lucky enough to be introduced to a variety of flavors & food. This has always made me want to cook for others, & have them feel the same joy I felt. Having a home cooked meal is hard when you have a busy day to day life. When I was a kid, I was invited to my friends homes & their parents would cook for me. One day I was eating Afghan food, the next day I was eating filipino or middle eastern cuisine. It is my turn to give back to my community. You won't have to just come to my restaurant to experience the cultures around the world. You can pick up my variety of dressings & spices I make on my own. You can also enjoy the food with my homemade teas I make as well. Spicy Mint & Black lavender are two of my most popular items. Many customers have asked to take some to go. I want to share that with everyone all over the world. I started with my community, now its time for me to bottle my love & send it off. No better way then having you help me start this adventure.
