A TASTE OF BORNEO FOR ALL THE FAMILY
LAUNCHES AT ST FAGANS FOOD FESTIVAL

The boom in home cooking caused by the COVID-19 lockdown inspired an entrepreneur to launch a range of sauces which she hopes will get the whole family cooking together.

Abergavenny-based Sorai is launching its new range of cooking sauces, Aroma, at the first virtual St Fagans Food Festival on September 12 (Saturday).

Founder Maria Stella (pictured above) drew on her life growing up in Borneo to create the sauces. She said: “One of the big things about living as we did in Borneo is cooking and eating together. It’s such an event, a time when families get together and can share cooking skills and stories and laugh together. I noticed during lockdown that families were coming back together to cook here too, so I wanted to give them sauces which will keep that trend going after the pandemic ends.”

“Cooking from scratch is also healthier for us as we know exactly what’s going into a dish. I had been thinking about making cooking sauces for a while and decided this was the time to do it. These sauces are designed to be an integral part of a dish from the start, rather than being something
added to it at the end.”

“The new sauces aren’t as intensely spiced as our other sauces because we want people to add items such as chilli, salt, or pepper to make their dishes to their family’s taste.”

The plant-based cooking pastes can be used in a marinades, stews, casseroles, soups, and stir frying. They join nine other sauces sold under the Sorai banner.

The new cooking sauces are:
– Rendangerous – Addictively enticing with warming aromatic spices.
– Tribal – Wholesome herbs, no-nonsense humble warm tribal flavours.
– LaksaRomin – Rich, aromatic, and infused with 25 ingredients to ignite your taste buds.

Maria said: “I had worked in the public and voluntary sector in England for decades, but when I moved to Wales, I was looking for something different to do so I could continue to spend quality time with my children. So, I created my business with products derived from many years of recipe development having served them to family and friends and at community and corporate events.”

KAPOW SAUCE // PRODUCT REVIEW

The lovely people at Kapow sauce recently reached out to us & gifted us with a bottle of their fantastic, versatile sauce. The sauce at first glance doesn’t give much off in the sense of what flavour it is or what it is meant to resemble, however upon further investigation (looking through the website https://www.kapowsauce.com/), you will discover that the sauce offers a sweet, smooth taste followed by a spicy kick.

With the sauce being so versatile, you can use it in many ways, such as a dipping condiment, to a marinade or even a pasta sauce. At Essex Foodies, we are keen to try it in as many ways as possible, so we will have a post to follow displaying in the many ways in which we have tried it, for the time being here is what we have used it for/with thus far

First off, we tried as a dipping sauce paired with M&S’s Meat’zza & garlic baguette. The dip was perfect with the meat’zza and gave it the oomph & kick that it lacked.

A solid 10/10 paired with the Meat’zza – cannot wait to have this again!

Keep your eyes peeled to see what we will be trying Kapow with next.
