When she passed away in 2019, I promised myself to keep Maman Noussi's legacy alive through some of those recipes; thus, Noussi Foods was created. Noussi foods is a brand that produce multi-purpose Hot Sauces.
NOUSSI FOODS' FOUNDER
My Aunts and Grandmother will always cook with fresh spices/herbs. Cooking traditional African foods was a must in the house. My cousins and I will often gather around the kitchen table to assist in the preparation of the meals. The meals would take forever to make as everything was done from scratch with local ingredients. When we would get any ailments, the women in the house knew exactly what we should drink or eat.
Today, I embrace cooking for my family and friends. I enjoy making those traditional meals; I take pride into cooking my meals from scratch with spices I grew up with. There is a sense of nostalgia when I'm in the kitchen preparing those Cameroonian dishes.
My kids have never been to Cameroon, but they do appreciate and love those local meals. I am so thankful that in a way, I am able to share with them a part of my childhood.
I created Noussi Foods all-purpose hot sauces, to not only keep Maman Noussi's legacy alive but also to share with Y'all a small piece of my childhood.
