We are a company powered by world travelers, chefs, and storytellers who have come together as "tour guides for your taste buds." Mezze is for those with a big appetite for life - people who want to experience the full vibrancy of this beautiful world and all of its people.
On our trips around the world, we break bread with locals, dive deep into the culture, and meet with food producers. Our focus is on understanding the core elements of the local cuisine and then finding ways to share them with you. Origin Spices are carefully curated collections that capture the culinary essence of our favorite regional cuisines.
Whether you aspire to expand your palate, or to truly master global cuisines, this is the perfect place to start. Be ready - once you open the door to a new culture, it never closes.

OUR FIRST JOURNEY
THE MIDDLE EAST
From the smell of freshly baked pita bread, to that first sip of Arabic coffee, this region is a paradise for the senses.
Crista Aladjadjian founded Mezze Spices out of a desire to share the rich culinary heritage of her Armenian-Arab roots. After cutting her teeth as a chef in Los Angeles for over 14 years, she grew to feel stuck within the borders of the flavors and ingredients she was given to work with.
Hungering for more, she set out into the world with her partner, looking for a deeper understanding of the cuisines of the world. They were welcomed into countless homes, humbled by the generosity of so many people sharing the origins, nuances, and traditions of their culinary heritage.
Upon returning, she pored over the videos, photos, and notes they had taken, recounting all the precious memories and friends made during many incredible meals. At that moment, she realized that it was all too good not to be shared with as many people as possible.
