Origin Story

Our Story 

Yo Prep is a culinary brand that allows you to cook and entertain with confidence, whether you are a chef or not. Anyone can be known as a good cook just by using Yo Prep products. Yo Prep is convenience at your fingertips, saves you time, and money, and avoids the mess! 

The Yo Prep dough recipe has evolved over years of family gatherings and celebrations. Our family has an annual tradition where we meet to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other milestones. Fried dumplings and festivals are considered must-have delicacies for our family gatherings during these times. 

Our children enjoy fried dumplings by themselves, as well as with scrambled and fried eggs; fried chicken, jerk chicken, barbecue chicken, as well as fish, (just to name a few!). Adults also enjoy fried dumplings and festivals with any meat and vegetarian substitutes, such as ackee and saltfish, callaloo and saltfish, and the list goes on. 

This Jamaican dough inspiration is loved by all, regardless of nationality. Yo Prep fried dumplings and festivals also go well with tea, hot chocolate, and soup. This product has been on the market for over three years and the demand for this fried dumpling and festival has grown tremendously. Yo Prep endeavours to afford families more time together, making and remembering memories over a scrumptious meal, and less time labouring in the kitchen. Because we believe that a family that plays together stays together.
