Project Description

 Project Description

BananaMama Co. founded in 2013 grew out of a passion for sharing flavors of the Caribbean to any savory dish. Growing up on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Dominica, my mom made this vegetable base recipe from scratch to use as a marinate in any chicken, fish, meat and vegetable dish. This marinate can also be used in rice as well as pasta dishes to get that taste of home, the Caribbean, that is. We are looking to bring this organic Caribbean flavor to all households nationwide as well as worldwide. We are seeking crowdfunding to be able to go into full production by utilizing a manufacturer and getting this product on the market to make your taste buds happier and share a bit of the Caribbean to your cooking. 

 

 A little History-Evolve

I grew up on the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominica where the fresh vegetables and fruits are in abundance. I remember my mom going to the market every Saturday to get all the fresh ingredients to make this marinate sauce. Saturdays was production day for this sauce which my mom would make enough to share with friends and family. I always wondered why my mom would get so many compliments for her food and it was all because of this special sauce. When I was old enough to cook, my mom showed me the ropes of how to make this marinate sauce. 
 

 

In 2013, I started this  side catering business, and always got so many compliments for my food, ( thanks to my mom) folks would say " It's not spicy, it's flavorful!" and that's what the sole purpose of this marinate and all purpose sauce is all about. Flavor! There's always ways to boost flavor in your food. It's not spicy, it's flavorful and this marinate sauce will boost that flavor.

 

 

Why is this sauce special?

Food is essential to human beings. We get most of our nutrition from the foods we eat. Food is also a social part of life as we sit and eat prepared meals over conversations with friends and family. We always remember a good meal we ate from a restaurant, or gathering. It could be a defying ingredient that brings out those variety of flavors and textures used to make the meal more memorable and more satisfying. 

BananaMama Caribbean All-purpose marinate is a vegetable based sauce made up of all organic ingredients. It's a traditional Caribbean marinate sauce which adds flavor in to any savory dish. It is gluten free with no preservatives. It's not spicy, it's flavorful. It's all about the flavor.

I realize that there are indeed a number of sauces on the market to give foods a bit of a kick, spice but there's hardly anything for flavor. So, if you want to transform your meat or fish or pasta or any savory dish into the most memorable dish full of flavor that would resonate with your guest or family then this is the perfect marinate sauce to use. Just add a little salt for taste or no salt at all. Flavorful.
