When + why did your business begin?

'Mondo Mama' was born in 2008 out of a desire to marry together my love of good food, a career spanning 15 years in the hospitality/food industry, with my new role as Mum. As mother of two gorgeous boys I juggle my love for all things food with family life. A 'Mondo Mama' market stall seemed like the perfect option.

What’s most important to you about the dishes you create ?

Quality, flavour, enjoyment! Food starts with quality ingredients, quality means flavour and food is not just for sustenance but for enjoyment also.

What’s your favourite thing about what you do?

I love to share my 'food love'. I'm a woman who is thinking about dinner at breakfast and more often than not will curl up in bed with a cookbook instead of a novel. Hearing positive feedback on the food I like to prepare is a fabulous feeling.

Favourite produce to work with?

Definitely home grown. It is inspiring to think about what is in season and therefore at optimum quality & flavour. Having a 5 month old isn't necessarily conducive to an overly productive garden at the moment however, one constant and productive favourite is our free-range eggs. Our lovely chooks, (Dizzy Dora, Ginger & Princess Kiev), provide all eggs for us at home & for the Market goods. The eggs are divine and the yolks the brightest you've ever seen. I 'm loving our abundant Moroccan mint & self seeded cherry plum trees.

What can customers coming to the market expect to see at your stall?

I'll be doing a mix of sweet & savoury brunch & lunch fare. I'm excited by fresh and zingy 'deep' flavours at the moment such as mint from the garden & preserved lemons that have been macerating for months. I'm really into the marriage of salty, savoury, sweet as well as texture - crunchy, nutty, creamy. The weather has just been superb of late, so expect yummy Summer salads, tasty tarts and slightly wicked treats! All great for a munch whilst shopping at the market or taking over the road to enjoy picnic style in St. David's Park.

Favourite treat you make?

Bomboloni (Italian citrus doughnut). Made from a yeasted dough, proved over-night, cooked quickly in clean hot oil and dredged in sugar. Perfect with coffee or hot chocolate. Yum!
