At Tropical Sun, we live by the motto: ‘Variety is the spice of life’. Our journey started in 1996 when we began importing a few specialist ingredients and daily essentials for the UK’s thriving ethnic communities.
As word spread, we began receiving requests for specific items from homelands far-afield: Spices, oils, drinks and snacks that helped people stay connected to their cultures. We loved that the food helped to bring people together.
Ethnic cuisine has been influenced by many and in times of old, most of the cooking was done outdoors. A solid and heavy pan, supplied with a lid, used daily in many West Indian households, it is known as affectionately as the 'Dutchie', in Asian kitchens it might be known as a "Pateela" - a traditional hard wearing metal pan.
Our round-bottom Dutch pots are perfect for slowly stewing or simmering to produce authentic dishes, full of flavour - somehow the flavours just come out even more when cooking using one of these - we put this down to the textured inside face of the pot that seems to soak up the various flavours and then infuse the meats/veggies that are cooking (we can't claim to understand the science, but can vouch for the taste!).
BBQ: we've had folks using them on their BBQs in the UK - literally you lift off the griddle and place it directly onto the hot coals (use appropriate protection when handling !), add in your spices, meat or veggies, a little liquid and really get cooking with it.
They're hard wearing and seem to impart a really authentic taste to whatever is cooked in them.
The magic is in the making!
