I first tasted Cuban food about 12 years ago when a Cuban/American friend of mine made me a Cuban Christmas lunch – I’ve been interested and inspired by Cuban food ever since. Cubanos’ food is a mix of classic Cuban flavours and recipes mixed with a few new ideas to keep it interesting – if you see me come and try it!
Risis Ices was set up by Mark and Joe’s great-grandfather, Antonio Risi, who emigrated to Newcastle from Italy at the end of the 19th Century. Antonio and his family left Monte Cassino, in the province of Frosinone between Rome and Naples, travelling more than 1,500 miles to seek a better life in the UK. The family settled in Byker and opened their first ice cream factory there on Wilfred Street in 1898. Now their main outlet is a stone’s throw from the Tyne Bridge on Newcastle Quayside, with others in Jesmond Dene and Paddy Freeman’s Park.

I was cooking for a friend and decided to make seitan sticky ribs. After tasting them, he said ‘you need to sell these’. And Sun of Seitan was born.
