Madeira Sauce

Add another layer to our Madeira Sauce with some sliced and sauteed fresh mushrooms or grate a little garlic in the pan as you heat the sauce through.

While Madeira Sauce is a natural accompaniment to roasted meat, its sweet nuttiness also pairs beautifully with sausages, chicken or weeknight mushroom pasta.

Pepper Sauce

Lean into the piquancy of our Pepper Sauce by adding some green Madagascan peppercorns with a small amount of their brine and bring a brightness to your final dish or go in a different direction with freshly ground Szechuan peppercorns – your choice.

Pepper sauce is a classic accompaniment to steak, it also works perfectly with roast chicken, pork and game meats, jacket potatoes, sweet potato wedges and much more. This much flavour knows no bounds.

Red Wine Sauce

If you fancy unleashing your inner gastronome, in a small saucepan slowly bring our Red Wine Sauce up to 90 degrees, then take the pan off the heat and gradually add squares of cold butter squares into the pan whilst stirring. This classic French technique, known as monter au beurre, is used by chefs to add shine and another level of velvety mouthfeel to a sauce.

Red Wine Sauce loves the addition of chopped fresh tomatoes and is a go-to with all cuts of steak, a Sunday roast and game meats.
