About Us

Spice Ladle creates fresh wholesome gourmet food with an Indian touch, using natural high quality ingredients.

The ‘Spice Ladle’ Way:

At Spice Ladle, we create the kind of food anyone with a palate for good flavor would wholeheartedly appreciate. In our kitchen, we like experimenting with the versatility of India’s smorgasbord of regional flavors to create recipes with more global appeal and a healthy touch.

We are particularly nit-picky when it comes to the ingredients that go into our dishes. Spice Ladle sources the freshest produce, organic lentils, all-natural meat, and freshly baked bread which comes to us right from a local bakery. We are always looking for ways to keep it organic, or as natural as possible.

For one of the most critical aspects of our cooking – we source organic spices from 24Mantra; drop by their site and read the inspiring ways in which they are changing the life of farmers in India using sustainable farming methods.

A combined 24 years of hospitality experience, especially in food and beverages, helps us in this journey for consistently showcasing our creativity in the kitchen, as we turn classical authentic flavors into simple-to-eat meals. Travels through much of Asia and Europe for work and pleasure have lead to interesting global food experiences, that get reflected in our food.

When it comes to corporate meals, we’ve both been there, working the corporate life. As foodies, we know how a good lunch, or better yet, a company event with really good food can brighten the work day. So we’ve taken on the job of solving your problem with boring office lunches that lack flavor, and turn your mundane meal into a taste-sensation.

You’ll find our culinary creations and travels on the blog ‘Peri’s Spice Ladle’ and in our cookbooks ‘Spice Up Your Celebration’ and more recent ‘Tikka Tikki & Spicy Bites’ both exclusively available on Amazon.

What’s the ‘Ladle’ all about?

Both of us have fond memories growing up in India and seeing our parents, grandparents and the many super-chefs in our family, dole out curries and daal using a simple kitchen tool – a ladle, a magical wand that dishes out warmth, love and deliciousness.

One might say, the hand that holds the ladle, rocks the food!

Meet Peri & Rohit

Peri Avari

Peri is a Parsi Zoroastrian and a native of cosmopolitan Mumbai in western India. The stunning flavors of simple home-cooked Parsi meals (that’s Indian food with Persian influences) set the stage for her love for good wholesome ‘real’ food.

Peri follows her passion and promotes the versatility and adaptability of India’s varied cuisines on her blog Peri’s Spice Ladle, by creating simple recipes that appeal to a global palate.

Rohit Kapoor

Rohit grew up in a Punjabi family – as the son of an Indian diplomat, he spent an interesting childhood, moving every three years to different countries around the world. This helped him develop a love for food and travel, which continues to this day.

Rohit went from hotelier-to-techie; and is now back to follow his passion for food, with a clear mission to turn mundane corporate lunches into a taste sensation.
