Fabrice Muamba and wife Shauna launch charity cooking sauce
Fabrice and Shauna Muamba to launch their new Caribbean cooking sauce.
Former Bolton Wanderers player Fabrice will join his wife to introduce the new Mrs Muamba’s Caribbean cooking sauces at Booths in MediaCityUK.
The idea to create the sauces was born following Fabrice’s near-death heart attack aged just 23 in the middle of an FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur at Whiite Hart Lane in March 2012.
The midfielder survived despite his heart stopping for well over an hour, thanks to the availability of a defibrillator at the ground.
A small donation from the sale of every jar at Booths will go to the Arrhythmia Alliance (Hearts and Goals) charity – a cause campaigning to increase the availability of defibrillators.
The Mrs Muamba’s five-sauce range includes Caribbean Curry, Sweet & Spicy, Caribbean Brown Stew, Caribbean BBQ Sauce and Jerk.
Shauna said: “I grew up in Jamaica and it was here that I fell in love with how food was prepared. I’ve picked up my cooking skills and inspiration from family and friends, and from the meals I have prepared over the years for Fabrice’s teammates, and so set up my own Caribbean catering company.
“My business was performing well – so I knew people would appreciate having the authentic flavours of the Caribbean in their own home, sauces created in my kitchen without all the artificial nasties”.
“It is fantastic that my range of Caribbean sauces will be available in Booths and that their customers will be able to experience the true flavours of the Caribbean. Also importantly a small donation from the sale of every jar will go to the Hearts and Goals charity which will help increase accessibility of defibrillators, which will save lives.”
