Orriss & Son

Lovingly created by David Underwood – chilli enthusiast, globetrotting chef and former co-owner of Steak & Honour in Cambridge this trio of sauces bring to life his passion for well-rounded, balanced flavours to enrich any cooking and eating occasion. Produced in small batches to ensure maximum freshness and recipe integrity, NEW Orriss & Son is a deliciously punchy, specialist collection of fermented chilli sauces, that are vegan and gluten free.

All in all, these three carefully crafted chilli condiments combine authenticity and deliciousness with ultimate convenience and health benefits. Choose from:

‘Even Flow’ - the one that started it all. Orriss & Son’s original recipe hot sauce, based on fiery and fruity habaneros plus red and smoked chillies, tomato and apple juices to deliver that defined ‘hit’. The hottest of the range and seriously addictive…

‘My Wave’ takes inspiration from the heat of the classic and now familiar piri-piri seasoning. Fresh and dried chillies are combined with red peppers, tomatoes and cider vinegar along with the traditional lemon, bay and garlic, to bring a fresh piquancy and balanced salinity to a host of dishes. You always need more piri-piri!

‘Fresh Tendrils’ is based on the subtle heat of fresh green jalapeños, balanced with green peppers, apple juice, earthy nettle and mint to impart a vibrant acidity in a tasty green sauce. We think of it as a gentle heat… transforming into a big tang!

NEW Orriss & Son Small Batch Sauces retail at £7.25 for a generous 200ml glass bottle and are available online from or directly from the Orriss & Son website

The Woolf's Kitchen

Everyone has a staple hot sauce. The one that is repeatedly purchased and never far from your hand. Well, your new staple hot sauce has arrived in the shape of The Woolf's Kitchen.

If you are looking for a sauce to add to mayo for a cheeky chicken burger, a dipping sauce for fish and veg, or just a flavour hit to add to any meal, then we recommend the Hot & Sour sauce. Fiery enough to know it is there, not too fiery that it alienates your "lemon and herb" friends. It is perfect.

Created by Dominique Woolf, her range of sauces also include sweet & tangy Tamarind Ketchup based on her Thai Aunt’s recipe and Jalapeño + Lime

a spicy, zingy sauce packed full of flavour and a taco.
