Pepper and Stew Ltd is delighted to announce that its gourmet range of African inspired products are now available to purchase at Harrods, one of the world’s most famous luxury department stores.
The London-based company hopes to spice up Harrods Food Hall with its authentic and versatile premium cooking sauces and spice kits which will allow shoppers to recreate African traditional dishes in their homes.
The sauces available at Harrods come in three delicious varieties: Jollof Sauce, a hot and spicy tomato mix; Cape Malay Curry, a sweet and savoury sauce which contains an array of spices and apricots; and the award-winning Egusi Stew. This smoky tomato-based sauce cooked with unrefined palm oil, won a Great Taste Gold Award in 2012.
Three aromatic spice kits, Cape Malay Curry, Kelewele, and Suya, are perfect for summer to use as marinades for meat, fish, chicken and vegetables for barbecues, salads and other light dishes.
All the products are 100 per cent natural products, are gluten free, have no artificial preservatives.
The UK based company’s collection of premium products taps into the popularity of hot sauces, spicy food and the consumer trend to re-create ethnic cuisine at home thanks to seasoned travellers, ‘foodies’, and people who love the idea of trying hot flavours.
Pepper and Stew’s products aim to capture the imaginations of UK consumers in the same way that Indian, Chinese, Thai and Mexican foods have, while offering exotic and authentic African alternatives for quick and simple meal time solutions.
Racquel Mafura, Pepper and Stew’s founder, said: "We saw a gap in the market, there were no products to make African dishes quick and easy to make. Our products are based on authentic African recipes and come with easy steps to make the dish, but can also be used to spice up classic family favourites such as chillies, barbecues, pasta dishes, stews and curries.
Foods of the world category is something Harrods have been reviewing recently and are launching Pepper and Stew products along with a number of other selected lines that will increase visibility of this category within their food hall.
Racquel Mafura, owner and founder of Pepper and Stew, said: “It is a great honour, and we are delighted to be representing African food in London’s famous Harrods. We are proud that the quality of our products meet the high standards of this famous luxury department store and hope this will go a long way to help achieve our dream of bringing African food to mainstream UK.”
Pepper and Stew’s sauces and spice kits are located on the ground floor Food Hall – the Gourmet Groceries shelf.
