In Southeast Asia, curries and a whole host of dishes begin with a fresh spice paste – called rempah in Malay. A long list of aromatic herbs and spices go into rempah, along with a fair bit of elbow grease.
Because rempah is such a pain to prepare, and because it’s near impossible to find readymade pastes outside of the standard repertoire of Thai/ Indian flavours in London, Shu Han Lee, Rempapa Founder, 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 she wanted to impress her guests. She realised this was the best way she could enjoy and share the flavours she grew up with adventurous but time-pressed Londoners.
Label.co.uk often attend trade fairs/shows to spread the word about their great labels! Rempapa attended the Specialist Fine Food Fair in London a few years ago and met with label.co.uk. ‘We loved what we saw’ commented Shu. She continues ‘ We particularly loved the textured paper and hot foiling features – which added a beautiful artisanal feel to our spice labels’
