You know that the key to some good food is the spice that you throw into it. Find your new favorite spice to bring your food to the next level at The Spice Suite where “Food is Fashion”. And who knows best how to spicin’ up some food than a black woman. The Spice Suite was created by a black woman named Angel who is also a mother, home cook, activist, and educator. Her love and expertise for food actually landed her in the Top 40 for Season 8 of MasterChef.
Her shop located in Washington, D.C. features a unique blend of fashion and food. She offers various gourmet spices, oils, and other “culinary delights” in her actual store. On the website, you don’t have access to all her spices, but you can try out one of her spice boxes that have a portion of different spices. There’s also kitchen tools and a cookbook available for purchase online.
The Spice Suite also interacts heavily within the DC community. Angel hosted 405 free pop up shops in her shop and she also started “SpiceGirlin’ Marketplace”. SpiceGirlin’ is a membership club filled with women that sell handmade or uniquely sourced products at reoccurring pop up shops at The Spice Suite. The members also have their products featured on the website. The club offers monthly education webinars, workshops, and seminars to the members’ knowledge of how to be successful in their businesses.
