Food lovers who want to treat their palates to the tastes of different countries or cultures every so often can do so by subscribing to Spice Madam, a subscription service for spice kits.

Founded by Meghana Moya and Kim Simithraaratchy, two friends who are food lovers themselves, Spice Madam is an exotic spice subscription service that sends customers a box of curated spices every month.

Each month, the spice kits are put together based on a country or culture. Each spice kit includes three to four spices as well as a few recipes that make use of those spices and an information pack about the spices and their country of origin. The recipes include appetizers, side dishes and main dishes so customers can create full meals around the theme for the month. There are recipes that can be easily followed by beginners and there are recipes for more experienced cooks.

The spice samples come in amounts that are more than enough to make a few dishes.

The spice subscription service offers three options for customers. They can subscribe monthly for $20 a month, sign up for six months and save $10 on the fee, or sign up for a whole year to get one month free. Customers can also choose to send a spice kit as a gift. Spice Madam gift options include one-month, three-month, six-month and one year subscriptions.

Spice Madam donates 5 percent of the proceeds of each spice kit to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children as a way of giving back. The startup has currently partnered with Dallas-based restaurant and culinary training facility Café Momentum, which offers post-release paid internships for juvenile offenders to help them get back on their feet and re-enter the community.

Along with their monthly curated spice boxes, Spice Madam also creates and posts cooking videos on their YouTube channel to help customers prepare the dishes that are included in the spice kits.
