A perfect spread is a combination of many things: great ingredients, amazing texture, and the ideal mix of flavors. But creating the perfect spreads didn’t happen overnight, it took years to polish these recipes and make our dream products come to life.
My name is Sara, and I create everything from scratch. That's where Sarai’s gets its name.
My kitchen is like a lab where, through trial and error, I craft something delicious. In every jar, there’s a little piece of me: my love for food, wellness, and a healthy lifestyle. I’m always striving to improve, whether that means tweaking a recipe or connecting with my customers.
The art of making spreads is akin to life: you have to step out of your comfort zone, try different things, seek balance, and maintain a positive mindset. Every spoonful is imbued with purpose. And I can’t think of a better gift than sharing that purpose with your loved ones.
That is what Sarai’s is all about.
I was born in Mexico City into a family of food lovers. That’s why all of our significant moments are celebrated around a table. Both of my grandmothers were amazing cooks. Emilia made the best desserts, and Sara’s house — who I’m named after — was always full of delicious Arabic food. So, from a young age, I was creative, curious, and always sticking my head in the kitchen.
When I was a little kid I had two favorite hobbies: making crafts and baking cakes. I would make soaps, add glitter and beads to the pockets of my jeans, or spend entire days covered in chocolate and powdered sugar. What I loved the most was sharing my creations with others. My neighbors remember me sitting outside my house, ready to sell whatever I had made that day.
When I graduated high school, I thought about becoming a nutritionist or a chef, but while I enjoyed learning the theory, it was nothing compared to getting my hands dirty. That’s why all of my recipes are born out of learning from my mistakes. This is the philosophy that guides my life, inside and outside of the kitchen. If I fail I try again, make myself improve, and always give one hundred percent.
From bags to cakes, and macaroons to spreads, this is who I am. I love to try new things. After marrying Edu, my greatest adventure yet, I felt like I was starting a new chapter in life. While trying to figure out my next project, I started experimenting in my kitchen. One afternoon, I ran into a friend who told me there were rumors that I was making delicious all-natural spreads. I was only making them for my family, but I asked her if she wanted to try them. That was the first spread I sold, and the rest is history.
