Our Story

  • Hi, I’m Maryan Carrillo, originally from Lima in Peru but I have lived in Britain for many years now. My extended family still lives in Peru where I was raised throughout my childhood and teenage years. My Mother and Grandmother are superb cooks with a strong passion for wonderful flavours and of course they taught me to cook their delicious recipes.


One of the main..

 ingredients in Peruvian cooking is chilli, a particular chilli called “Panca” an ancient name given to it by the Incas, and it has a unique smoke, sweet and spicy taste.

A couple of years ago all my friends urged me to start selling the food I was feeding them with. They had fallen in love with the rich and flavoursome cuisine of Peru, so I created Taste Peru, I made Rumba Peruvian marinade and Hot dipping sauces, using authentic chillies from Peru a mouth-watering range of authentic and exciting sauces with real and distinctive Peruvian flavours, using four varieties of home grown Peruvian chillies and our secret family recipe, handed down over generations.

I have now been selling the sauces at various food fares held in Yorkshire at Stately Homes, Organic Markets, Festivals and Garden Centres and of course direct sales to my friends and colleagues. I receive a lot of favourable feedback and repetitive orders which has helped to build my confidence in the quality of my products.

Our sauces are unique and versatile

I would like everyone to sample my sauces, they are reasonably priced and have wonderful fragrant and fruity flavours to add to rice, stir-fry and marinades for vegetables, meat or fish and they all marry nicely with a full bodied red wine such as Rioja Tempranillo!


Remember “Saucey Variety” is the Spice of Life! x

The most delicious tasting Peruvian food! Highly recommend their varied menu. Something for every taste. You will keep going back for more! I know I do ?”


I was lucky enough to have some food from Taste Peru this week. It was so tasty and it looked beautiful. I have been wanting more of everything ever since I tried it! The pastry was perfect, the potato cake was heaven and looked like a work of art. Everything was full of flavour. I’m looking forward to visiting the wool market and taking my husband and friends!”
