The Original Curry Sauce produced by Leeds based Really Indian Ltd will be proudly displaying a coveted Great Taste 2012 logo after being judged by a panel of 350 of the nation’s most discerning food experts over 45 days.
Founded in 2011 by husband and wife team Amrik and Gursharon, The Really Indian Original Curry Sauce was created around the idea that a fresh curry can be simple and quick to prepare at home.
The Original Curry Sauce is made from a special blend of 15 different spices combined with fresh chillies, garlic, onions, root ginger and tomatoes and can be used as the base for all the curries in the range. The high quality ingredients are carefully cooked and blended to create a cooking sauce with maximum aroma and flavour so you can enjoy a taste that is Really Indian at home.
The sauces can be found at farmers markets, food festivals and other events throughout Yorkshire, or can be bought online at www.reallyindian.com. Really Indian also supply specialist food shops and can deliver throughout the UK.
To achieve Gold in Great Taste is a significant achievement for any food or drink producer and results are eagerly awaited. The scheme, run by the Guild of Fine Food, has been described as the epicurean equivalent of the Booker Prize and in 2012 a total of 8,807 different food and drink products were entered.
“Having entered an award for the first time and winning a Great Taste Gold Star within the first 6 months of us launching the Original Curry Sauce, we are very excited about the future of the product. The sauce will be recognised not only for its quality, versatility and health benefits, but also for its great taste. As a company Really Indian Ltd now looks forward to launching products of the same quality, and contributing to the growth of the Yorkshire economy.”
Of all the entries into Great Taste 2012, only 123 gained a coveted 3-star gold, with the Top 50 from those nominated for a Golden Fork Award, the highest accolade in fine food and drink which will be announced at the Awards’ dinner at London’s Royal Garden Hotel this September.
Judges this year included Masterchef winner and restaurateur Mat Follas, restaurant critic and Masterchef judge Charles Campion, food writers Lucas Hollweg and Xanthe Clay and over 300 food buyers from leading food halls, delicatessens and farm shops, including Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.
