Chef Belinda Smith-Sullivan

Belinda Smith-Sullivan is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, with a degree in culinary arts.  She has lived in France, Kenya and South Africa and has travelled extensively throughout the world experiencing the foods and flavors of multiple cultures.

Belinda started experimenting with spice blends when she was a personal chef, creating “short-cuts” for herself, based on flavor profiling.  Soon clients, neighbors and friends started asking where they could buy them.  When told they could not, because the blends were her private creations, they demanded them even more. Giving in to their pressures, a business was born!

Also a food writer, several of Chef Belinda’s articles have been featured in regional magazines throughout the southeast.  She is the monthly food contributor to South Carolina Living Magazine and Aiken’s BELLA Magazine. She is the publisher/author of The Flying Foodie Blog; and former co-host of Cooking with Madjon & Chef Belinda, a weekly television cooking show based in Aiken, South Carolina.
