About Pat & Pinky’s

Pat and Pinky’s is on a mission to bring the taste of Guyana to the UK (and the world!) with its unique range of Wiri Wiri chilli sauces, chutneys and condiments.

Pat and Pinky’s is named after Pat Hinds and his late mum, Pinky. Pat’s parents moved from Guyana, the small former British colony on the north-east coast of South America, to London in 1959 and settled in Lewisham, where Pat and his sister Yvette were born and grew up.

Pinky was a great cook and passed her passion for food on to Pat, who has always loved cooking for friends and family. After a successful 25-year career running his own marketing company in the UK, Pat came up with the idea for Pat and Pinky’s during a trip to Guyana to visit his father who retired to his homeland.

Pat realised that the much-prized Wiri Wiri chilli, which is an essential part of Guyana’s vibrant cuisine, was actually little known elsewhere and he decided to give it the attention he felt it deserved. Using the distinctive cherry-shaped chillis, along with local herbs and spices, he created his own delicious, spicy sauce recipes, and Pat and Pinky’s was born.

Guided from above by his beloved mum, Pat is putting Guyanese food on the map. Its mission is super simple: make authentic Guyanese, Caribbean premium products that look great and taste even better.

“As a growing business, having the opportunity to share and showcase my Guyanese & UK culture is amazing. It’s what it’s all about for me.” – Pat Hinds
