Hi I’m Shu! I grew up in Sin­ga­pore and moved to Lon­don 10 years ago. To stem my home­sick­ness, I start­ed spend­ing all my spare time in the kitchen, with my mum on speed dial. I think food has such a won­der­ful way of mak­ing peo­ple feel good and bring­ing peo­ple togeth­er — and in my first years in this strange scary city, I found new friends through cook­ing for them! Many sup­per clubs and a cook­book lat­er, I start­ed Rem­pa­pa Spice Co. in 2018 while I was in between jobs. Here’s the story:

Rem­pa­pa comes from the word rem­pah’ — a fresh aro­mat­ic spice paste that’s the base of cur­ries and a whole host of dish­es. Because a long list of exot­ic herbs and spices go into mak­ing these spice pastes, and because it’s near impos­si­ble to find ready­made pastes out­side of the stan­dard reper­toire of Thai/​Indi­an flavours here in Lon­don, I would often make large batch­es of rem­pah and freeze them in serv­ing-sized por­tions. They were a god­send on week­nights. Or even on spe­cial occa­sions when I want­ed to impress my guests.

I realised this was a fan­tas­tic way to share these bold excit­ing flavours with curi­ous but time-pressed Lon­don­ers. I first start­ed sell­ing Rem­pa­pa at farm­ers mar­kets, and as word of mouth grew, we’re now stocked in some of the best delis and food­ie plat­forms in Lon­don and beyond — pip­pyeats for one! :)
