Bukayo Saka teams up with Nando's to create PERi-PERi Saka Sauce

Bukayo Saka has teamed up with Nando's to create his own Peri-Peri sauce.

The Arsenal star has collaborated with Nando's food team to create PERi-PERi Saka Sauce, which combines his love for smoky BBQ with the restaurant chain's distinctive PERi-PERi.

The winning sauce is sweet and fiery with a little (free) kick and is made with tomato, garlic and smoked paprika. It comes in at medium on the famous PERi-ometer and is a definite crowd pleaser.

The England international has a history with Nando's as he stole the show with his side-eye in the eatery's 'This Must Be The Place' TV advert last year, while the chicken restaurant even hosted his Dad's birthday party in the past.

Saka said: "The sauce mixes sweet, spiciness and smokiness.

"I love it and can't wait for everyone to try it. I've been going to Nando's since I was little so to have my own PERi-PERi sauce in every restaurant in the country is quite mad!

"My family's really important to me so I wanted to make sure they liked it, too. As soon as my Dad said he was a fan, I knew it was the one."

You are unlikely to miss the sauce as the bottle is a feast for the eyes. It has been designed by the artist Reuben Dangoor – who is known for his viral illustration of Gareth Southgate and the artwork that wraps the Emirates Stadium.

To mark the launch, Saka stepped into the kitchen to encourage a team of chefs to bring his creation to life. The football star features in the mini-film 'Yes Chef' – a playful take on a high-intensity kitchen setting.

Fans can experience the worlds of food and football joining forces at Nando's Holloway Road restaurant in London from 20th March.

PERi-PERi Saka is available at all restaurants across the UK and Ireland from today (19.03.24) for a limited time and can be found at the sauce station.
