Maffé Sauce: Brad's favorite

West African fast food.

Brad Hedeman is the scribe and one of the food finders at Zingerman's Mail Order. When we asked him about his favorite product, here's what he had to say:

You may not know this but I am the Leif Erikson of trends, a cultural trailblazer of food, fashion and fads. Humility prevents me from listing all the gifts I’ve discovered, but a partial list of my discoveries includes wearing Oxford shirts around the waist; saying "redic" instead of "ridiculous"; small batch bourbon. This year my great find was Maffé sauce. A regional sauce of West Africa, maffé goes by a multitude of different names depending on where you’re from and is enjoyed weekly by millions. Now it’s the darling of the culinary world, but it was me that gave Maffé its big break and made it the star it is today. At least that’s how I remember it and I'm sticking with my story. Regardless, when I “discover” a new flavor from a new producer, I want to share it. More than that, I want everyone to eat it. I’ve told everyone I know in the food world about maffé. Also people I meet on the street, in cabs and this is about the tenth time I've written about it in our catalog so if you have read about it and haven't tried it yet, it's high time so hop to it. It’s delicious and I want Jainaba Jeng, the woman who makes it, to quit her “real job” and create more great flavors we can spread around the country. It’s a dream, but a very tasty one and worth sharing.
