The Origin of Taste

The Origin of Taste is a small family owned business located in Nairne in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

We strive to provide curry pastes, a satay sauce, a chilli sauce and oil, and pickled jalapeño based on the origins of South East Asian cuisine enhanced by the freshness and the taste of locally sourced produce.

Our range of pastes includes vegan varieties that use gluten free miso paste.

All of our pastes are free from artificial preservatives and flavours and have no added sugar.

Just full of goodness for you to create many memorable dishes for family, friends, or yourself.

Our ingredients come from our friendly local suppliers.  As well as other small to medium businesses located in the Adelaide Hills and around Adelaide including:

    • Garlic from the Adelaide Hills
    • Kaffir lime leaves grown in Nairne
    • Lime juice from Kanmantoo
