About us

We have been cooking, travelling, experimenting and recreating the flavours of our adventures for many years, to the general contentment of friends and family. Though happy to be fed by us, over and over we heard the same common complaints and misapprehensions and misconceptions.

  • Always thought spices meant chilli heat
  • Spices are too hard to find
  • Do not know how to use strange new ingredients
  • Spices are too difficult to use

So the light bulb moment came and we decided to try and address all these issue and put our money were our mouth was.

Cardamome& COMPAGNIE are Nathalie Duvelleroy, Anindita Roulet, and Philippe Roulet.
