Harlem EatUp! : Spread-mmms®

I moved to NYC – Harlem specifically – while attending grad school. Many years later, I got seriously hit by the travel bug, so I up and joined the Peace Corps! Uncle Sam sent me off to Paraguay where I had the chance to meet & learn from many amazing entrepreneurs!

While I was away, my friends missed my tapenade & I was urged to return to NYC and start selling this delicious stuff. This one tapenade quickly launched a whole line of sassy savory spreads.  I love creating intense & interesting flavors – and I am so proud that others are enjoying these Spreads as well.
