The chili and garlic sauce

About us






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


However 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

then 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 in order

to bring back togetherness, conversation and confidence in families.


We want to shine a light on our cultural differences but most importantly

to celebrate them in a playful way.


We believe in the joys of diversity and tolerance.





more than just

a Chili and garlic sauce




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 food, art and craftsmanship.
