Q: So are your sauces and marinades caribbean ?
A: There is Caribbean influence in all our marinades and hot sauces, however we use them in different dishes to add that extra bit of flavour. In particular our Natural green Marinade is a base for cooking any delicious meal, from Indian curries, to Italian Spag Bol. We use it to marinate and flavour our meat, tofu and fish before cooking a dish. You can see our products are Caribbean influenced. Although the food we cook are Eastern Caribbean infused.
We sometimes use it like a flavour pot.
Q: How did the company start?
A: It started with Granny Yvonne! We moved to the U.K. where we continue to share our family recipes.
Mama Jacq's had dinner parties within her home. Neighbours and friends were invited. Word quickly spread throughout Watford, Hertfordshire that there is a lady who makes amazing food. She then began cooking for events held in Watford. These events ranged from church ceremonies to a family day in local parks. During these events Mama Jacq's would be questioned on what she puts in her food to make it so delicious. Her answer was always "I use plenty of love". Of course we knew this was only part of the truth. She also used what we now call Mama's Fragrant and Tangy Green Marinade and Cook'in Sauce.
