What is Rempah?

Rempah is a complex spice blend that imparts intense flavor to a dish and is the backbone of cooking across the Malay Archipelago. Various spices are pounded with a pestle and mortar into a wet paste and fried over a gentle fire until fragrant. This paste, known as rempah, is used as a base for cooking delicious dishes.

At Homiah, we do the back-breaking labor of making rempah for you. All you have to do is grab a spice kit and choose your protein and veggies, so you can make delicious, grandma-approved Southeast Asian dishes in minutes.

A Message from our CEO & Founder

A Message from our CEO & Founder

Homiah means "to live the good life", expressing love and care, often by cooking for someone.

Homiah began in the 1940s in Penang, the culinary capital of Malaysia, where my grandmother Nonie was a famous cook, and one of the first to codify local Southeast Asian "Nyonya" recipes. Nonie's recipes became family heirlooms that I grew up cooking with. When I moved to America, I began sharing my cuisine and culture with friends. This passion for making others “homiah” became the basis for founding Homiah.

Today, I personally craft Homiah’s products based on Nonie’s recipes, working alongside small producers in Malaysia and using only the highest-quality, wholesome spices. For me, Homiah is more than about food. It is deeply personal: it is about the ability of food to comfort and connect people to the world around them. Thank you for joining me on an exciting journey!
