Orriss & Son - Fresh Tendrils (Jalapeño & Nettle) - 200ml
David Underwood, founder of Orriss & Son, has been a chef for over 20 years. He has travelled extensively, cooking in some top kitchens in London & Melbourne, before settling back in his hometown of Cambridge in 2014 as co-owner of burger sensation Steak & Honour. A fleet of ‘street-food’ vans, an eponymous restaurant opening and a packed events calendar followed, but David’s focus has always been the building blocks of flavour; the layers of taste, tang and heat that can transform a simple meal into a culinary experience.
After 6 years and a national lockdown, David knew the time was right to devote his full energy to this pursuit of flavour. At home with his family he developed and refined an idea he had been working on for the past decade; hand-crafted, fermented chilli sauces made in small batches: plant based and minus junk. They were to carry his grandmother’s family name, ‘Orriss’ – one rooted in the East Anglian region. A personal touch for a bespoke product closely tied to his memories of the flavour-filled family meal.
David has produced a range of sauces that are really quite exceptional. We love a good hot sauce, but it has to balance that heat with depth and complexity of flavour. David's range of sauces do just that, and more so due to some of the more unusal ingredients used, as with the Fresh Tendrils featuring Nettles. I never thought I would be able to suggest using a hot sauce on something as delightfully delicate as Salmon but thanks to Orriss & Son and Fresh Tendrils, I can.
