Welcome to Love And Other Spices!

Hello, I’m Farwin. Happy to “meet” you! A little about me and what you’ll find here in this space…

I’m the cook, photographer, and voice behind Love and Other Spices. Originally from Sri Lanka, I’ve lived in Dubai, Qatar, Ireland, and now call Ontario, Canada home with my husband and 3 sons (2 teenagers and a 4-year-old).

My cooking style reflects how I approach life, blending love and spices to create meals that are both delicious and cherished. Spices play a huge role in my cooking, influenced by my upbringing in Sri Lanka.

My recipes are globally inspired by my experiences living in different countries, offering a vibrant mix of cuisines from around the world as well as classic comforts. On my site, you’ll find simple, easy, fresh meals with loads of flavor, made using everyday ingredients that are budget-friendly and healthy-ish. I also have a major sweet tooth, so there will definitely be desserts!

I want to show you how to make vibrant recipes with everyday ingredients, reflecting my passion for cooking.

I love using modern appliances in my cooking to make meal times easier and faster. I’m a huge Air Fryer fan, and you’ll find loads of Air Fryer Recipes on my site. I’m so glad you stopped by Love and Other Spices and I hope you continue to come back and hang out.

If you want to collaborate or contact me, email me at [email protected].

Add a dash of
love, with spices in your recipe.
