I'm Marty Embry, your guide and host to this doorway to fantastic poetry books, original art work, cooking apparel, calendars, cookbooks, spices and cookware.
I have published 8 cook books with the 8th being released in December 2012. My spices were created because of my desire for flavoring foods with simple ingredients. I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago. Need I say how wonderful Chicago is to entice your palate to dance to the beat of its own drum by daring to venture to the restaurants in the city? After graduating from DePaul, I played professional basketball in Europe for 13 years and what better way to learn how to mix and match flavors, while creating succulent meals!
My cook books are virtual European restaurants on paper! Turkish delights, Spanish specialties, Belgium delicacies, simple Italian creations, delicious Japanese bites and please don't get me started on all of the southern cuisine that my mom, dad, wife and mother in law taught me! Wow, I just had a moment!
Please, for the love of all that is holy and sacred, take your time and enjoy your meal, enjoy your family and friends and enjoy how food can enhance your dining experience! There is nothing like slowly eating a home cooked meal and allowing your palate to be bathed in the wonderful flavors, but only after your nose has gone into overdrive! Did I mention to you that I really, really enjoy food!
The spices were created to emphasize my nearly 25 years of recipes. The idea was to create delicious and flavorful spices that could easily enhance any dish, whether it was from my cook book or one of your personal recipes.

Marty's Art website was created for the sole purpose of displaying and selling my art work. What a wonderful concept...ART! I am amazed that I actually created the pieces on this web site! I absolutely love art...any art and all art! I don't have a favorite period nor do I have a favorite artist.
I'm greedy and I simply enjoy it all. Art transports me to another time and place as I try to visualize how and what the true masters were thinking of as they created their masterpieces.
I played basketball at DePaul University and it was there that my love of art was truly born. Chicago is a virtual endless zone of wonderful, beautiful and exciting art and architecture. I would often walk from campus to Lake Michigan and take out my charcoal and pad and simply become lost in my own little world of art.
After graduating from DePaul, I packed my bag and went to Europe. I played professional basketball in Europe for 13 years. It was Europe that I honed my skills as an artist and chef. When you think about it, a great chef could easily make a great artist. Conversely, a great artist should make a great chef! They both create visually enticing pieces, whether it's on a plate or on a canvas. I happen to have an incredible thirst, love, lust and desire for both.
Take your time to enjoy my art because I certainly enjoyed creating it all. It is simple, thought provoking, beautiful and inexpensive. You'll find yourself mesmerized by a few of the pieces. Hopefully, you are going to fall in love with art just as I did.
