Sylvia Orlando with husband Luiz E Orlando outside their restaurant Braza
Chef Sylvia Orlando has developed four new sauces using her grandmother’s recipes as a foundation.
Sylvia, who owns Galetos in South Street and Braza in Arcade Place, spent around a year working on her recipes and has now unveiled her flavours: coriander and lime, garlic and herb, capsicum, and volcanic.
“When I was young, I was always next to my grandma who loves cooking. I was always looking at what she was doing, asking a lot of questions until I became passionate about cooking,” she told Time 107.5.
The sauces don’t contain artificial preservatives and can be eaten by vegetarians and vegans.
It took Sylvia a year to perfect the recipes and she has been offering them to diners to taste at her peri-peri chicken restaurant Galetos.
“I asked some of the local customers to come and test the sauces so I could develop what I was doing. Once it was ready I finally put it in the bottle,” she said.
They told her they “overwhelming loved” all the sauces and asked her to start selling them.
Sylvia has contacted Costco about selling the sauces and she is also planning to approach various supermarkets.
The sauces are being produced in a factory in Romford.
