Our Inspiration

Growing up my parents loved hosting dinner parties that were typical of lavish Mediterranean hospitality. Endless feasts were crafted in our kitchen, rich menus of the most refined dishes ranging from Asian, Middle Eastern, African and European cuisines that my mother prepared from scratch. Leading up to dinner, was my father’s part, the drinks and cocktails which were always accompanied by a selection of healthy and delicious snacks, one of them being my favourite. Nuts. By the time the guests arrived, my sister and I would have depleted the bowls of our favourite nut - cashews! Roasted and salted in Lebanon, these were of the highest quality. Though Lebanon does not produce/farm nuts, we somehow mastered the art of roasting them. They accompany every lemonade on the beach side, drink at a bar, snack between meals as well as late night munching. And so, my sister and I developed an exigent palette for natural, healthy and homemade delicacies. 

By the time the guests arrived, my sister and I would have depleted the bowls of our favourite nut - caSHEWS!

Upon my arrival to NY, I failed to find comparatively good nuts, thus proceeded to make my own, a mixture that I had discovered on a trip to Sri Lanka which consists of cashews and fresh curry leaves. I perfected the recipe and adopted it as a staple in my menus at every brunch, gathering, bbq and dinner party I hosted. It was met with tremendous success and so the idea was born to launch Kaaju, an environmentally and socially conscious social enterprise that makes Earthy Tidbits (TM).  - Alia, Co-Founder.
