Ashanta Sellers


Ashanta started her love for cooking when our mom got sick. She wanted to find ways to make her food more flavorful w/o the salt and because of the diabetes. So, 2001 she quit her basketball coaching job to stay at home and fix mom health options. Watching the food channel she started altering recipes and out of that her passion grew. We were invited to support a friend she was being honored by “ women in business in Baltimore. Women began sharing things about their businesses so Ashanta was gently forced by sis (Cikeithia) to get up and share. Cikethia started by saying how wonderful Ashanta sauce is and that she needed help to get the business to the next level. Well that’s when Malaika (dreadz and headz said she could help. Ashanta told her she wanted to put mangoes in her barbecue sauce with scotch bonnet peppers and Strawberries in another one. Malakia right then and there said “ who puts those two together?“ Shanta expressed that people should be willing to try different foods and flavors. Later that evening Malaika stated the name of the sauce should be “TrySumtin Nu. Three weeks later we rolled out our sauces. Ashanta treats people's food the way she likes to eat. With every bite you will experience the love of her creativity!
