Maja Tomic │ Founder
Born in Bosnia and raised in Canada, my love for food began in my mother’s kitchen. She instilled in me the value of cooking with all-natural ingredients, focusing on quality, and not necessarily quantity. Meal time was always a special time, no matter how busy life got, and I remember how much passion she put into her home-cooked dishes. Food has always fascinated me: its ability to enchant all of our senses, to delight, surprise, and unite us. A plate can tell a story, draw us in and make us fall in love.
My love for exceptional cuisine matured when I moved to Italy in 2007. In a place where food is a religion, I came to appreciate ingredients, preparation methods, aromas, flavours, customs and traditions on a whole new level! I was captivated by the Italian foodies, their passion for the raw materials that make up their meals and their desire to locate the best of the best.
After completing business school and working in sales for a few years, I decided to pursue my dream: to bring rare and precious foods to my home country, Canada, through the identification, selection and distribution of the highest quality products. And so, I founded Taste for Luxury in 2013.
My products come from small suppliers who rely on exceptional environmental conditions, all-natural ingredients and original production methods to produce the highest quality products in existence. My mission is to find these products and get them to you!
Initially, Taste for Luxury’s distribution catered mainly to five-star restaurants and gourmet food shops. Today, I also seek to provide unique products to all you chefs and foodies at home – those who search for and appreciate exceptional quality ingredients for use in your culinary masterpieces.
I invite you to shop my online store, and contact me for any inquiries. Follow my journey to bring you amazing food items on @TasteForLux social media sites and feel free to share your recipes, anecdotes and photos using the hashtag #MyTasteForLux.
