Kirsten Helle Sandoval
Before she formally studied cooking, Kirsten Helle Sandoval relied on salty, dried packet spice blends, or sugar, salt- (and often chemical-) laden sauces to achieve the global flavors she loved and admired. Once she was a chef, she found that fresh vegetables and fruits combined with pure spice blends allowed the flavors to really "bloom," creating something quite special and delicious. She found that to achieve the flavors she was going for in a healthy, authentic way, she often had to prep tons of ingredients, and spend a small fortune on pure spices and herbs.
She became a professional cook for professional athletes. After cooking all day, Chef Kirsten would come home and wish she had these cooking sauces and flavor bases in her cupboard, for making quick, healthy, and tasty meals for her own family. She knew she wasn't the only one with this need. So she started her own company to create them.
