About Savory, Sweet & Spicy

About Savory, Sweet & Spicy

I started Savory Sweet & Spicy in 2012 when I decided to, once and for all, dedicate a year to working my way through the cookbooks and recipes I had obsessively collected over the years. At the same time I began immersing myself in cooking, I was wrapping up treatment for early-ish stage breast cancer and realized that this new hobby was not only a creative outlet, but also an avenue to eating well to live well.  Call it kismet: a nutritionist urged me to focus {as we all should} on consuming whole, organic foods with an eye toward those on the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant lists and I soon realized that most of the multi-cultural recipes I had been amassing over the years emphasized these particular foods. 

So this blog is more than just a vehicle to document the accomplishments {the tried and true good recipes} and share them with like-minded food lovers. It is a celebration of various cultures and cuisines that combine whole foods in utterly unique ways to produce healthful, flavor-packed dishes that are savory, sweet, spicy or a wonderful combination thereof.  

I hope Savory, Sweet & Spicy inspires you, as much as it has inspired me, to take the time to get in the kitchen, have a little fun and begin relishing the pleasures of homemade dishes from around the world.

About Jill

My professional career includes stints as a finance executive for an international bank holding company in DTLA, a marketing executive for a motion picture studio in Hollywood and an independent consultant. All along I have been obsessed with movies, music, interior design and food.  

My cookbook and recipe collection reflects a penchant for both fresh, inventive California cuisine and exotic international cuisines...a penchant developed through exploring American and ethnic restaurants in LA and New York and through travels to Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. 

A significant part of my sabbatical was Savory, Sweet & Spicy and it was great fun:  rolling up my sleeves, making my way through my library of recipes, enjoying each dish one bite at a time with husband, family and friends and documenting it all here. 

Thank you for visiting.
