Let's Come Together to Cook

About Us

Let's Come together and Cook

My name is Cynthia, I come from humble beginnings.  Being raised by two parents and being raised in Upstate New York.  I spent a lot of time standing at my Nana's apron strings, watching her cook in the kitchen and bringing family and friends together.  I was very much inspired by how her food told a story, and centered around her roots, and especially how it brought people together. I quickly fell in love with creating nourishing meals and bringing people together.

I began my culinary journey in my very early years pursuing the art of cooking and obtaining my certification in Food, Nutrition, and Health. 

As I started on my journey as a Personal chef, I was introduced to individuals and families who had dietary restrictions of low to no salt intake.  As I encountered other individuals and families with the same dietary restrictions, it became clear to me that I was preparing and making special seasoning blends for each individual or family.​

I began creating my own seasoning blends with strong flavors that compliment different varieties of dishes, such influences from India to Africa.​

In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family and friends, and learning new recipes and updating myself on health and food, which drives my demand for nutritious food. Every meal that I create reflects these values, providing not only excellent taste, but also nourishment for the mind and body.
