When we arrived in Aberdeen…
…we, that’s me – Dami and my wife Ify, missed the African sun, our family and our friends; but we brought with us the rich and exciting flavours of our Nigerian home cooking.
My mum owned a restaurant in Nigeria and I helped out whenever I could get away from school. When I left home I travelled the world experiencing different flavours. I returned buzzing with ideas, but still use my Mum’s amazing dough recipe to make family pies!
Ify also loves cooking and creating new flavours. She is an award winning Gospel singer. When she isn’t in the kitchen you’ll find her happily singing as well as looking after our kids, and our sauces!
In 2013, I left Aberdeen’s Oil Industry and we filled our kitchen with fresh vegetables and spices and hit on our special Dami & Ify sauces! In our street food business, we filled Aberdeen’s workplaces with our own ‘Shawarma’ wraps and sides, but people were super-excited about our sauces. So we scaled up production and got serious about sauce.
We are fine food producers of ketchups and sauces, inspired by the rich and exciting flavours of our Nigerian home cooking. We have chosen quality over volume. All our recipes are created to make taste tastier, and we believe you enjoy them as much as we do!
