My wife and I have known Bina for 40 years and have been fortunate to put our knees under her table on many occasions. She is a a phenomenal cook and hostess. If it weren’t for the fact that we live 1,500 miles away, we would be there for every class. You live closer. Do yourself a favor and attend one of her classes. You will love it!

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Bina’s food for many years. Not only did it nurture my taste buds, but it nurtured my soul. I am thrilled and excited to have these recipes, so I can experience Bina’s cooking in my own kitchen. I have been spoiled because I cannot enjoy Indian food in restaurants any more. Thank you, Bina, for sharing these recipes that touch your mind, body, and soul.

Bina Mehta’s exquisite style of cooking is of sublime quality, arousing the sense of awe and wonder with curiosity for the next bite. This tantalizing culinary experience invokes the essential nature of emotion in Ayurvedic cooking known as the rasas.

Spices Testimonials

[Bina] began cultivating her recipes and changing them into healthier options long before it was fashionable. [She] was on a journey that wasn’t obvious to the casual observer. … By writing her story through recipes that span four-plus decades of sharing food with family and friends, … [she] became a healer. And with and through her unique blends of spices, traditional food is elevated to the sublime.
