Peri-peri sauce from the Buttery ATL
Linton and Gina Hopkins have built an online marketplace that ranges from raw ingredients to fully prepared meals. One of the treasures of the Buttery ATL’s pantry is this house-made peri-peri sauce. It has the thickest texture of the three sauces we tried, flecked with tiny but discernable bits of garlic and pepper. It’s mildly spicy, with a definite garlic kick, and is mild enough to spread on sandwiches. We also liked it straight, as a dip for carrot and vegetable sticks.
$6 per 8-ounce cup. Available for delivery within a 4-mile radius, or for pickup at the Buttery ATL, 2137 Manchester St., Atlanta. butteryatl.com/products/peri-peri-sauce.

Peri-peri hot sauce from True Story Brands
The Anthonys of True Story Brands, owners of Atlanta restaurants 10 Degrees South, Biltong Bar, Yebo Beach Haus and Ski Haus, began bottling their peri-peri sauce back in 2012, because customers loved it and wanted to be able to use it at home. It’s so popular that each of their restaurants has it available as a side sauce order, so diners can splash it on anything they like. If you need inspiration for how to use your bottle of their peri-peri sauce, just look at the restaurant menus. Chicken, tuna, shrimp, chicken livers, lobster (with peri-peri aioli) and even popcorn get the treatment.
$7 per 9.7-ounce bottle. Available at all Biltong Bar locations; Ponce City Market, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta; Buckhead Village, 306 Buckhead Ave., Atlanta, and 700 Avalon Blvd., Alpharetta. biltong-bar.com.
