Who says you have to make curry with curry? Not us!

When my friend and mentor Julie Kramis Hearne approached me to co-author World Spice at Home, I was thrilled to accept. Julie’s book vision was compelling, and it perfectly matched our mission at World Spice.

Using spices in everyday cooking with confidence, creativity and ease is what this book is all about. We’ve all experienced the lure of an exotic spice blend and wondered how to use it, and World Spice at Home provides the answer.  Julie and I selected our favorite spice blends and set out to show just how easily you can use each one, and in so many different ways! Creating World Spice at Home has been an amazing collaboration- with one recipe idea sparking another, and more often than not there is something new for dinner.
