Let's Spice Things Up
It's all about flavor.
At Voodoo Spice, it’s all about the taste and the WOW factor. We’re always in search of what’s new and interesting in the world of flavor profiles. This search can sometimes lead to something we like, but often times we wonder if we can make it better by adding something else, and that’s when the magic happens. That’s what we call having fun with what you love to do.

Like a lot of people, I had a dream, a vision and a burning desire to make people happy, and when I can make people happy through my food, that’s when I am the happiest! So, over the years I have perfected my art of cooking learning what people like, learning what makes them happy and listened to them as I put my heart and soul in everything I make.
So where did it all begin? I would say in the kitchen with my Mother, watching her make dinner, helping her and her teaching me the basics. As I got older, I ventured naturally into the restaurant business, from fast food to fine dining I learned the trade.
My next level of learning I owe to Chef Ken Davis. He was the executive Chef I worked under at a very high end restaurant, this is where I learned about spices and what they do to food. My first day I was instructed to taste and smell every spice on the shelf, and when I did I needed to know what all was in that can, this taught me what spices would and would not go with each other and it also taught me to understand the different flavor impact each spice would have. With that background, I still to this day, when I eat anywhere, I slowly try to learn the flavor profile the chef has created and determine what spices were used and to think about the thought process that went into that dish.
