“When I opened the Spice Monkey six years ago I wanted to share my love of the amazing culinary traditions that circle this globe we call home. My earliest love for the aromas and flavors of herbs and spices came from my grandma’s kitchen in Cambodia.
“As I grew I had to explore the seeds, roots, leaves, flowers and twigs that infuse the dishes of many lands with wonderful flavors. Tasting the foods of diverse peoples and cultures is a wonderful way to increase acceptance of the diversity that makes up our human family”
Kanitha Matoury, Co-founder & Executive Chef
