How did it all begin, what is The Saucy Affair?
As a child, when I was asked what do you want to DO when you grow up? My answer was simple ‘make a difference’! But if asked what do you want to BE? I had no idea… It’s taken me 20 years, dabbling in several degrees, brief stints in the media, police training at Hendon, a little time off the rails, a 10-year career in the energy industry, and a couple of children to find my calling…
In October 2015, I made the life-changing decision to leave the corporate world, and turn my focus to my young family and personal well-being. Once I’d escaped the stress of the “Commuter Mum” daily cycle, I was able to re-evaluate what I was truly passionate about – great food, cooking, the arts, poetry, but above all a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family.
“I was determined to unite these passions in a way that would somehow make a difference, helping the many other parents and career-driven individuals who face the same pressures that I did.”
Cue the Saucy Affairs 😉 and my movement into the food industry in a black dress and a mask. With a dollop of chef’s instinct and a dash of improvisation, I created a range of sauces made from raw ingredients that encapsulate The Saucy Affair Meal 1‘cooking from scratch in a bottle’. I wanted the sauces to make serving healthy, tasty meals almost effortless – perfect for people who, like me, love food and being healthy but lack the time to always cook from scratch.
In February of 2016, I founded the Dressquerade Company, now known as The Saucy Affair – Raw Sauces, and I’ve been pouring my heart into it ever since!
