I was born in Barbados, the second of three children. I spent my formative years in Trinidad and enjoyed going to cooking classes.
The family moved to America in the 80's! The 80's. what a time! I love the food! the tastes, the textures, the colors, where all the senses are working as a unit.
I have always enjoyed watching my mum cooking and baking, she makes the best meals, breads and she enjoys it! The family sitting around the kitchen table talking and peeling vegetables; we had to sit so as to keep out of her way; it was after all, her kitchen.
Watching the love she has for feeding her family and the care she shows as she puts a meal together is very inspiring. We were reminiscing one Sunday about our childhood treats; we decided to each try and find our childhood treats, mine is the Tamarind Ball! I searched and all I found were balls of sugar masquerading as tamarind balls. We were on a mission to once again enjoy our childhood treats. We started with the tamarind ball, combining our knowledge of what we wanted, how it should taste, and the texture were critical factors for the perfect Tamarind Ball! After many trials and errors, I am thrilled to state we have the best tasting Tamarind Balls available for sale online & at our PoPUP shops around the boroughs.
From that one need, we realized they were many childhood treats and tastes of home that needed to be filled. From that experience we formed MumsKitchens NYC! We have added Breads, Cookies, Brownies, Vegan & Gluten Free options are also available as well as Grand Mama's savory CodFish dish. Our menu has grown and we are proud of our delightfully delicious decadent product offerings.
Every time we are in the kitchen, we will strive to awaken all your senses, bringing the same love and dedication to every dish we prepare just like the OG MUMS!
