The inspiration for Funky Elephant

I have always loved cooking. Born into a Caribbean family, food was at the very heart of the family. My earliest memories of childhood revolve around food. I have fond memories of being in our kitchen with my mum, chopping, peeling, grinding and cooking. I was fascinated with the process of how  simple raw ingredients and spices would be carefully put together to create food bursting with flavour and some of the most wonderful aromatic dishes that I had ever tasted!

 

I fell in love with North Indian food at a late age, I was taught how to cook real Indian food by a restaurant chef. He showed me how to create freshly cooked and true to traditional recipes, which were light, wholesome, flavoursome and healthy, unlike the mass produced, greasy, fat laden commercial Indian food that we are accustomed to. I then went on to create a range of stir in sauces, spice rubs and marinades that can be used by anyone.

 

“Our mission is to continually produce both healthy and indulgent recipes that are bursting with delicious flavour.”
