WHO WE ARE
Maize Blaze was launched in Camden Market in 2014 by founder Ruth Christianson. Inspired by her early childhood growing up in Bogota, Colombia, Ruth is on a mission to popularise this wonderfully diverse cuisine in the UK.
The team has grown over the years to include hardworking creative chefs on the front lines and incredible freelancers that help to spread the Maize Blaze dream visually and socially.
Our logo was inspired by a gold figurine made by the indegenous Colombian tribe, the Muisca. Handmade gold items like these were rowed out into the middle of lake Guatavita and thrown in as offerings to the gods. You can now see many of these figurines at the Museo del Oro, Bogota or check out our Pinterest board for some examples. We think this particular one really captured our team spirit and we felt it was a natural representation of our joyful and mischievous natures!
