Inspired by the aromatic dishes she ate while living abroad, Thea Samuel returned to the UK and launched her own business, Sri Spice Ltd, in 2015. Based in North Queensferry, the business sells Sri Lankan style curry kits and side dishes that are made to the 42-year-old’s own recipes.
How and why did you start in business?
Whilst living and working in Sri Lanka in 2007, I stayed on my own as well as with a lovely local Sri Lankan family. Amma (mum) cooked the most amazing curries on an open fire with clay pots.
