'The more you cry, the more she laughs

About us


In all cultures, food brings people together to share stories and traditions.

But in the modern world, when we struggle for the time to make those

connections, we hope Bad Mama will give you a chance to slow down

-to heat up- and reconnect with those around you.


When you sit across the dining table from a stranger, and watch them

add just a little too much Bad Mama to their lunch, you know that in

a few seconds time, you will be laughing as friends. 


We want to share the authentic tastes and attitudes of Chadian culture,

to bring back togetherness, conversation and confidence in families.


We want to shine a light on our cultural differences and celebrate them

in a playful way.


We believe in the joys of diversity and tolerance.






Attitude and Diversity

We represent many different cultures and embody pride in our differences, 

all with a mischievous sense of fun.


Cultural strength

We look to the whole world for inspiration for our recipes.



We share real stories of real people in a lively, honest way, especially

highlighting local art and craftsmanship.
