Award-winning purveyors of fine Jamaican fayre, Marshall & Brown, are marking the 99th birthday of the late ‘Mama Brown’ – a larger-than-personality and the inspiration behind the upscale brand – on May 20, by offering customers 20 percent off any of Mama Brown’s rum cakes.
Spiced with rum and available in six mouth watering flavours – choose from Coconut, Chocolate, Key Lime, Pineapple, Banana and Golden original – these decadent, ultra-moist cakes are named after Mama Brown, the vivacious late mother of Marshall and Brown founder, Dr Carlton Brown.
Mama Brown, who sadly passed away in January 2021, moved from her native Jamaica to the UK in 1962 with a passion for cooking and baking, but never forgot her Caribbean roots.
Announcing the special discount on Mama Brown’s delectable rum cakes, in honour of his late mother’s birthday, Dr Carlton Brown said: “My mother was such a wonderful, warm, welcoming person and the place I remember her best and – that holds the most precious memories – is the kitchen.
“I used to love spending time in my mother’s kitchen watching her whip up rum cakes and other Jamaican staples.
“Mama Brown was also well known for her energy and zest for life – she was still hitting the dance floor in her 90s.
“When Marshall and Brown launched at the Jamaican High Commission in London, on January 30, 2019, she relished showing off her moves and burning up the dance floor to Bob Marley – a picture of Mum made the next day’s edition of the Metro newspaper!”
“Even in her mid-90s, she always led from the front. In honour of my late mother and to celebrate her remarkable life, we are delighted to offer our customers 20 per cent off any Mama Brown’s rum cake purchased on her birthday: May 20.”
