Food is an essential part of our lives and cooking is one of the most intriguing characteristics of my culture. This passionate ritual takes place daily for the vitality of my family. All of my recipes have been passed down through the many generations of women before me. These spices and ingredients not only enhance the taste, they also stimulate all five senses, providing my family a satisfying and nutritious experience of each meal. I handpick every item, evaluating them with extraordinary care. The daily ritual of scrutinizing potential ingredients for every meal led me to produce these colourful closeups; each surreal in their uniqueness.
