Traveling Through Mozambique

Traveling Through Mozambique

Traveling Through Mozambique Traveling through Mozambique is an experience I’ll never forget. We left Durban, South Africa in early January 2011 on an adventure that would take us over some of the most hectic roads we’d ever encountered, expose us to tastes, smells and sounds like no other, and bring us face to face with and angry malaria ridden local! The easiest way to get to Mozambique from South Africa is through Swaziland. We arrived at the Lavumisa (Golela) boarder gate early in the morning. We drove straight across Swaziland and into Mozambique through the Boane boarder gate. We never stopped along the way in Swaziland as our mission was Mozambique and we still had a very long drive ahead […]

Traveling Hot Sauce Blog

Traveling Hot Sauce Blog I’m so passionate about hot sauce and chili’s. I love hot sauce and I love traveling just as much. I also really like taking cool photos and I have a knack for writing. So I decided to put it all together and start the Traveling Hot Sauce Blog so that I can document all the fun I have and also get some kick-ass pics for promo purposes. I started my hot sauce brand in 2015 but only really started taking it seriously in February 2017. I started earning a full time living from my hot sauce brand in June 2017 after I quit another business venture of mine. It has been so much fun and I […]

South African Hot Sauce

South African Hot Sauce South African Hot Sauce varies and comes in many different shapes, sizes and flavours. The average hot sauce flavour here in South Africa is very different from the flavours found in the USA. Most American hot sauces are fruit based. In South African using fruit as a base for hot sauce is almost unheard of. It all has to do with pallet and what we in our designated countries prefer. I personally would love to get my hands on some American fruit based hot sauce. To me this is intriguing and very different. The Tastes and Flavours of Africa Our hot sauces are generally quite tangy. Some are oil based while some are vinegar and lemon […]

Making Hot Sauce Caveman Style

Making Hot Sauce Caveman Style Making hot sauce can be a challenge if you have very little and no money to get what is needed. Imagine trying to start a hot sauce business but really having nothing to work with. How would you grind chilies and mix the sauce together? This really got me thinking. The Man from Malawi There is a lovely man from Malawi that works on the property that I stay on in South Africa. He caught a glimpse of my chili plants one day and excitedly asked if he could have some. I was so excited to have someone around that was as excited about chilies as me, so I have him a bag full and […]

Chili Entrepreneur

Chili Entrepreneur

Chili Entrepreneur What does it take to be a Chili Entrepreneur? Well for starters it means disagreeing with society, even if just a little. I have been a free agent since I finished school. I couldn’t handle how mundane and irrelevant to life it was. After leaving school I had a few regular jobs but never kept them long. If there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s having a boss looking over my shoulder. Where I Began I started out by studying music and went into it professionally. I failed horribly at making money out of my love for music. I do still perform, write music and teach but I no longer have to make a living from it. […]
