Wood Street Sauce Co. is a Bangalore-based range of small-batch sauces and condiments, made by Karan Upmanyu.
A chef by occupation, Karan has worked in a number of leading restaurants around the world, picking up techniques and interacting with new ingredients. He moved to Bangalore for work in 2017, and fell in love with the city and its food culture! He loved that Bangaloreans are excited about food and open to trying new things. When the pandemic hit and restaurants shut down for months together, Karan’s restlessness to keep cooking led to the birth of Wood Street Sauce Co. Now, any spare moment that he is not at the restaurant is spent in his home kitchen, just off Wood Street, making large pots of sauce!
Inspired by iconic condiments from around the globe and made with locally sourced ingredients, our offerings work as both ingredients to cook with, and as sauces that you can simply spoon out of the jar and eat along with a snack.
Note: Our products are handmade and homemade, so while strive for consistency there may be slight variations from batch to batch.
Ours is a small team of three. Supporting Karan and his sauce dreams are Shivani and Devyani. Shivani Unakar, a freelance food researcher and writer, spends her free time working on Wood Street's communications. Devyani Maskeri works in talent acquisition by day and moonlights as Wood Street's logistics manager and all-round support system.
