Another on-location review as they go stateside to try a mainstream chilli sauce from Nando’s. This time we try the Peri Peri Medium sauce, so how do we like it?

The Oxford Dictionary records that ‘Piri Piri’ is a foreign word meaning a very hot sauce made with red chile peppers and ‘Peri Peri’ is the South African term for piri-piri.

Ingredients: Water, White Vinegar, Onion (11%), Salt, Lemon (4%), Vegetable Oil (Sunflower Seeds), Serrano Chilli, Spices (including African Bird’s Eye Chilli), Garlic, Stabilisers (Xanthan Gum, Propylene Glycol Alginate) & Antioxidant (Calcium Disodium EDTA).

Made and available by: Nando’s In the UK and USA

The 125g bottle is available at an average price at £1.99 (Price correct at time of publishing) from Supermarkets like Waitrose, Asda and Tesco’s

Filmed on location:
Main Street Park, Brooklyn, New York
With The Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan sky line including the new One World Trade Center.

Hi Chilli Padawans!! Well, bugger me this review has been a long time coming…after about 6 months of down time I am finally back on the horse, covered in chilli sauce and whistling dixie! (well, everything except those last couple of things!) And this is a *cracking* sauce to do a comeback with too!

This sauce is made by the Powers family of mexican/american-british descent on the Isle of Wight using a recipe that originated in California that was handed down through the generations until it reached the current producers of the sauce, where it has evolved into a blend of the finest ingredients and including fruits and chillis to make the sauce that I’m reviewing today!

Ingredients:Tomatoes, Onion, Mango, Vinegar, Mango, Habanero peppers, Chipotle, Garlic, Lime, Cilantro (coriander), Agave nectar, Salt, Spices.

So, if you all know me well enough, you know that I LOVE chipotle sauces, in fact I don’t think i’ve tasted a bad one yet… (aside from cottage delight, that stuff was rank) and as such, I doubt I’m going to dislike this either! But lets have the sauce do the talking!!

Its in a beautiful skull shaped bottle proudly adorning a label on the back of its head that simply reads “Bloody Hell Hotsauce” the main label is attached to the neck of the bottle by string, which itself has the logo wrapped round it also, so you’ll be hard pushed to forget the name of this sauce!

Right, I’m waffling on, lets get down to the nitty gritty eh padawans?

And there you have it, for £13 delivered this is an absolute STEAL, especially considering the sauce itself is bloody gorgeous *and* you get 400ml of it!! You couldn’t find a bargain like that anywhere, I urge all of you to get a bottle of this and post your own thoughts in the comments below, I personally found it lush, so get yourselves over to www.bloodyhellhotsauce.com and get a bottle bought!!

Right, thats it for this week my Chilli Padawans, keep your eyes open next week for another review, and until then…may the sauce be with you, always!!

Here at Chilefoundry, we have quite a big workload, and with more and more companies requesting a review of their products, this workload is increasing. Whilst we would all love to review full time, we all have real jobs to pay the bills so reviewing is our hobby and passion. So to try and share the load I would like to introduce and welcome James Fowkes, or Jamopepper as some will already know him on Twitter, to the writing team, and here are James’s own words on his chilli history and why I got him involved.

“I was never a fan of food when I was younger, but my first curry was a vindaloo then I discovered nacho’s with jalapeno at the cinema. After that chillis became a regular part of my life and I am now a well travelled adventurous eater.

Its not just about finding the hottest pepper for me, if you want heat its easy to find and not too hard to make. I am a complete foodie and appreciate the full taste experience and balance of flavours, as well as that endorphin rush from a good chilli hit!

For over a decade I have also grown chillis, starting from my kitchen window to several chilli grows and a larger plot in my garden. In partnership with growing I have been a regular attendee at the Westdean chilli fiesta for nearly 10 years in a row now, even help out on some stalls at other events like the Fiery Foods Festival and Shoreham Chilli Fest.

My love of travel has led me to some interesting places and spicy discoveries. I have spent 2 months living in Mexico tasting and testing chillies as part of my fascination and fondness for Mexican food and culture, including good tequila! Travelling across places like South East Asia and Costa Rica has further introduced me to not just hot chillis but the variety of spicy cuisine which I bring into my own cooking at home.

As a result, my regular chilli stash has representation from many small UK producers and well as several international and authentic Mexican products. I have also been very lucky to be involved in pre launch hot sauce tasting and product design for a few producers too.

My chilli community and obsession continue to grow and now I am happy to be invited into the ChileFoundry review team. You can also find me on twitter @jamopepper”

So there you have it, James has already been hard at work and his reviews will be published soon.
