5 Reasons to try The Fresh Sauce Co
In the first of our 5 reasons food posts Mark Robinson and Victoria Monaghan of The Fresh Sauce Co explain how their chilled sauces can turn basic ingredients into a restaurant quality meal (see my comment below on the one I've tried)
- We’re Victoria and Mark and we’ve been making a range of fresh sauces from our dedicated kitchen in Suffolk for 3 years. We started the business following a trip around Italy, wanting to recreate the delicious pesto we tried when we got back home
- We quickly worked out that using the best and freshest ingredients gave us the best tasting sauces. We’ve now expanded our repertoire to include Asian dishes such as Jalfrezi, Korma, Satay, Laksa as well classic Italian favourites like green and red pesto and Bolognese.
- In the last year, we’ve been focusing on online sales, which happens to be very timely! We deliver in environmentally-friendly insulated packaging, by courier, so that the product remains chilled while in transit to reach you in perfect condition. You can even specify the day of delivery.
- Our sauces can transform simple store cupboard ingredients into delicious meals from around the world in minutes with options for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores!
- We have a Limited Edition sauce each month - this month (April 2020) it's a classic sweet and sour sauce made with pineapple juice tamari and rice vinegar - so you can make your own Chinese takeaway at home!

I don't normally ask to taste the food and drink that's featured in this section but was offered a range of sauces to try and was quite intrigued by the idea that you could use them to jazz up basic meat, fish and veggies you might have in the fridge or freezer, particularly when the ingredients you might need to make more adventurous recipes could be hard to source at the moment.
So far I've tried the satay sauce which was absolutely delicious and really tasted as if you had spent hours in the kitchen. It was also dead easy - it cooked while I was making the rice to go with it - though I found you needed to add a bit more water than the 100ml they suggested. The sachets are ideal - and not expensive - for two but at £3.95 a pop might be a bit pricey for a family though obviously not in comparison with a takeaway.
They'd be ideal to order for an elderly relative or anyone else who is currently living on their own and unable to get to the shops - you could freeze half of what what you had made.
Disclaimer: I was sent a set of sauces as a free sample.
