Farang head chef Sebby Holmes has launched a range of Thai-inspired cooking sauces

Called Payst, the 14-strong range includes dipping sauces, stir-fry sauces and “the only fresh Thai curry pastes” available in the UK, the brand claimed. 

The products, which are made in the Farang kitchen by Holmes and his team, have rolled into Harrods, Selfridges and Daylesford Farm Shop (rsp: £4.25-£5.95).

They contain ingredients sourced from “top farms across Thailand and the UK” and are free from preservatives and artificial ingredients.

The range provided “the perfect opportunity for Brits to discover the diverse flavours of Thai cuisine and experience authentic Thai flavours in the comfort of their own home”, said Payst.

According to Holmes, “Covid played a huge role” in the brand’s conception.

When the government-enforced lockdown was announced, Holmes offered customers with reservations at Farang the opportunity to collect their meal or have it delivered if they lived locally.

“We were very lucky that there was so much support from the local community. People kept coming and wanting more of our food,” said Holmes.

“Customers repeatedly asked if they could get our sauces as a side to use later in their own meals; and that’s how Payst was born.”
