SAY HELLO TO EDIBLE ADVENTURES BY THE PAISLEY NOTEBOOK
From magical pop-up dinners and campfire cookouts to edible adventures with foraged things and everything in between, I’m all about restaurant-quality food in unexpected places.
My Mum taught us that ‘your food is only as good as your spices’, that’s why we import non-GMO spices from India. It’s actually the only imported thing I buy for my pop-ups because Canada is oh-so-edible.
Edible Adventures by The Paisley Notebook is a set of small-batch, non-GMO blends using my own recipes. The idea is to make Indian spices less intimidating and more fun. Each 60g kraft packet has about 20 edible adventures living inside of it, so the idea is to create new food memories as we go along.
A percentage of sales is also donated back to anti-racism organizations to make a little change and keep the conversation going.

Fennel, coriander, cumin, a touch of chilli and no weird stuff (you should probably smell me, though). Try me with sautéed mushrooms, roasted veg or Pacific seafood to name a few.
A south Indian blend inspired by Kerala. Savoury with sweet notes from things like cinnamon, fennel and star anise. Delicious with seafood, chicken, pork and veggies.
Deep with royal roots, made using all the expensive spices. Red meat and a bit of heat are its partners-in-crime. Sprinkle when you season your steak or add to your burger mince.
A fragrant mix using Chai spices. The idea is to sprinkle into your favourite baking, fruit or cocktail syrup recipes to give it a little Indian vibe. Exclusive to The Paisley Notebook.
A dehydrated product to amp up camp food (or when you’re on the ski hill). Using organic BC lentils and gently smoked with pruned vines. Add boiling water and boom – instant daal!
SUPPORTING LOCAL ISN’T WHAT I DO, IT’S WHO I AM.
I’ve always asked a million questions with pretty much everything. When it comes to food, I like to ask questions about how our food is grown, raised or sprayed. Every farmer is different. So, until you’re comfortable to ask those difficult questions, here’s my little notebook of farmers and producers that I trust to pair with my spice blends.
