Meet David of Orriss & Son

Orriss & Son sauces are a product of my professional background. I’m a chef, with a varied skillset and these condiments were developed over a few years in a Cambridge burger business I owned, Steak & Honour. I feel fortunate to live in Cambridge, which has a thriving independent food scene and champions local producers, of which there are many!

The sauces are all chilli based and are fermented for maximum depth of flavour. The blend of chillies and peppers is then cooked in small batches, with herbs and other ‘hero’ ingredients specific to each sauce. Most relevant to the sauce we make is the ability to recycle or reuse every aspect of the bottle and packaging. Shopping local, reduction of food miles and minimising carbon footprint will help lessen the huge impact currently happening to the environment. I am also looking at ways to get the range to become zero waste and closing that loop!

I have really enjoyed creating the product, from development to the beautiful branding of our creative director Jon, at Collaborate-London. Our labels feature maps, music, design and travel; a nod, if you will, to a few of the driving forces that have inspired our journey together. It helps hugely that the contents are a delicious way to improve (almost) any food experience.

I decided to turn my focus to the sauces last year, as I wanted a change of career. I was missing seeing my kids grow up so thought I’d change my life!

What’s the first restaurant you’re going to visit? The first place you’ll travel to?
The first restaurant I have booked is Wild Honey in St. James. Love the food. Travel wise my wife and I love Italy, so there, fingers crossed!

Where is your happy place?
Among family and friends, in the sun, music on, sharing food, wine and conversation

What’s the strangest dish someone has used your products for? Have you tried it?
A couple of chocolate recipes have been spotted with Even Flow… they are not necessarily that off the wall, but I haven’t tested it in a brownie yet!
