Succulento started with our individual yet combined passion for cooking. When we arrived the United Kingdom, we settled in Aberdeen, Scotland. My wife and I missed our friends, family and the African sun. However, we brought along with us the rich and exciting flavours of our Nigerian home cooking.
My mum owned a restaurant in Nigeria, which operates as a family business, I helped out whenever I was home from school. After my education in Nigeria, I travelled the world experiencing different tastes and flavours. I returned buzzing with ideas and recipes, but still use my Mum’s amazing dough recipe to make family pies!
Ify (My wife) loves cooking and creating new flavours. She loves to try out and make new recipes. When she isn’t in the kitchen, you’ll find her happily singing as well as looking after our kids, and our sauces!
Our love for of Africa’s cooking heritage and passion for creating new tastes brought about the idea of Succulento.
In 2013, I left Aberdeen’s Oil Industry and we filled our kitchen with fresh vegetables, spices and hit on our special Dami & Ify sauces! In our street food business, we filled Aberdeen’s workplaces with our own ‘Shawarma’ wraps and sides, but people were super-excited about our sauces. So, we scaled up production and got serious with the sauce.
Succulento comprises of fine food condiments inspired by our heritage of home cooking using natural ingredients and our passion for good taste. With our fresh natural ingredients and recipes, we deliver an exceptional experience. All our recipes are created to make taste tastier, and we believe you enjoy them as much as we do!
