African Volcano is an artisan producer of premium Mozambique style peri peri sauces and marinades. The brand was launched in March 2012 and received a gold and double gold from the Great Taste Awards 2012 for the medium strength sauce and marinade respectively. 30pence from the sale of every bottle supports the initiatives of Habitat for Humanity South Africa in their Youth Project (Cape Town). Saturdays at Maltby Street food market in Bermondsey SE1 (London) I have a stall there where you can purchase the products, along with a variety of “street food” which showcases the versatility of the sauce and marinade.
What can FBC attendees expect from you at the event?
The menu will feature products I serve at Maltby Street on Saturdays
Tell us why you would like to take part in FBC5?
What inspired you to start your set-up? What are your future plans for it?
I am a classically trained chef and have wanted to produce the sauce and marinade for many years. The opportunity presented itself at the beginning of 2012. Future plans include “world domination” 😀
What does your set-up mean to you?
It is my business and I am proud of where it is going, since launching 13 months ago.
What makes the food/drink you serve so special?
The food is wholly different to the perceived “peri peri”. It is premium and focused entirely on the taste, heat and lingering flavours. Once you have done the “3 stage taste test” you’ll understand the nuances.
After yours, what other street stalls/pop ups/supper clubs out there do you think are really good?
I think Speckmobile and Tozino have got great products.
Do you have a food blog? Who is your favourite food blogger? What positive effect are food bloggers having on the country’s food scene?
I have a private blog. Favourite food blogger? I read a wide variety of them. Food and Wine Matcher (Fiona Beckett); Eatlikeagirl (Niamh Shields); Andy Hayler; Elizabeth Auerbach; etc
What’s your favourite new ‘trend’ on the British street food scene at the moment?
Seeing people eat well cooked street food, which doesn’t cost the earth
