The Nando’s PERi-PERi story

While we’re not going to give you the exact recipe, we’re happy to let you in on a couple of secrets. We are a PERi-PERi sauce, and not just another hot sauce.We start off by cooking our fresh ingredients instead of fermenting chillies (a process used to make most other hot sauces).
