A centuries-old story
The recipe for our Tzigana sauce is inspired by the traditional Hungarian dish goulash, or gulyás.
The word gulyás is now known throughout the world, and originally means "herdsman".
Gulyás is actually a thin soup, flavoured with onions and bell peppers, which travelling herdsmen prepared on the plains when their herds were grazing.
The emphasis was on ingredients that kept well and were easy to carry.
Did you know that the word “paprika” (pepper) also originates from Hungarian? On top of this, it is also worth knowing that bell peppers are full of vitamin C and have a positive effect on our digestive system.
Pieces of fresh bell pepper combined with onions and gherkins create the unique flavour of La William’s Tzigana.
