Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Pronounced "kuh-min", Cumin has an unmistakable flavor that is spicy-sweet, aromatic and somewhat bitter undertones. Cumin has only recently begun to be recognized as a popular spice in this country, but world wide, it is one of the most consumed spices right behind chiles and pepper. For cooks in Central America, the Far East, Mexico, the Middle East and North Africa, cumin seed has long been a signature spice and is a key ingredient in curries, Garam Masala blends, Coucous and many bean, meat and rice dishes.
Native to the Egyptian Nile Valley, Cumin Seeds are now also grown in several hot regions in China, India and Turkey. In our ongoing effort to satisfy the most discerning home chefs we have searched out the highest oil content in our Cumin that we can find. Our whole cumin seed is grown in India.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
Chef David has been in the culinary industry for over 25 years. His first job was at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. After that he was hooked on the industry. He would continue to work with food whether it was in the back or front of house, in positions from entry level to managerial. In 2010, Chef David enrolled in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Chicago and then graduated in March of 2012 with an Associates Degree in Culinary Arts. He then began working at fine dining restaurants in Chicago, amongst them were, Bistro Bordeaux, Fork and A10. In 2016, He moved to Lawrenceville, Georgia and began working at restaurants there, then eventually switched over to Private Chef work before starting A&H Provisions.
