Welcome To Uncle Wendells Gourmet Blends
Meet Our CHEF
Hi, I am Chef Wendell McPherson. I was born and raised in Guyana; South America (formerly known as British Guiana) Due to its similar culture it is often considered part of the Caribbean. I grew up on the East Coast of Guyana, my passion for cooking and baking stemmed from my childhood days growing up in a household where my mother was a professional caterer, which blossomed into my career path something I would never imagine 45 plus years ago. I fondly remember my mother telling me “when you are cooking do it from your heart”, which I still practice every day.
I quickly understand the importance of preparation, hard work, working from the heart and respect. I applied these values to my Endeavour by making an inventory of resources, planning my activities for efficiency, working on my goals every single day, and giving my body the necessary rest, it needed to operate. My upbringing has completely supported my development and I am thankful for it.
One notable thing about my Guyanese culture is that we have a very diverse food pallet, stemming from our rich history from being ruled by the Dutch, Spaniard and Great Britain who brought, Portuguese, Chinese, East Indians and Africans to the Caribbean along with our native Indians called “Amerindians.”
I enjoyed working in the culinary industry as a gourmet chef, preparing different types of cuisine from around the world.
I am proud of myself today, after looking back at long hike through the culinary industry from one end to another, I could see my destination platform, not only as a gourmet chef, most of all a small business owner.
I used some selected herbs and spices in my mixtures that has some very good health Benefits! You can check out the health benefits section on the website.
My goals are, to provide a unique line of products that will meet customer’s needs! Salt free blends, low sodium blends, and vegan blends, which I know customers will enjoy when cooking.
