Cardoz is the son of the late, world-renowned chef Floyd Cardoz, who taught him everything he knows. Cardoz’s parents immigrated from India and always kept spices at the forefront of their home meals. Cardoz is now the owner of a cannabis consulting company called Cardoz Blended Gourmet, which specializes in formulating products for licensed cannabis manufacturers, as well as educating and inspiring home consumers to create their own products and blends. He recently launched his own line of CBD infused culinary products focusing on the flavors of hemp, including truffle and chili finishing oils.
Since the passing of his dad, Cardoz finds himself supplementing what he learned from his father with America’s Test Kitchen videos. Winning America’s Test Kitchen: The Next Generation would mean so much to Cardoz, who never got to work alongside his father. Winning would help launch his new cannabis-focused culinary program, and enable him to reach more people who could benefit from the products.
