Essential Cuisine launches stock exchange for chefs

As chefs begin to plan for autumn menus, Essential Cuisine is launching The Stock Exchange, giving kitchens short on inspiration the chance to swap out their existing product for full size pots of its class-leading stocks range.

The British producer is turning the tables on competitor products, with the view that once kitchens experience the Essential difference, they won’t ever go back.

With a scratch-made taste and performance that chefs from all walks of life love, the Essential Cuisine range has, for the past 23 years, built an impressive reputation for reliability and consistency.

Much of the 12-strong range is free from declarable allergens, while all are low in salt and high yield with an unmatched versatility, meaning they can be used at almost any point in the cooking process.

Perfect for rubs, marinades, pané, blending, poaching, dusting and braising as well as giving existing stockpots a flavoursome boost.

Jonathan Harvey-Barnes, Senior Business Development Chef for Essential Cuisine, explained why the range should be viewed as so much more than just a stock. He said, “From the most prestigious contract caterers, to schools, hospitals and care homes, right through to pubs and high end restaurants, our stock powders form the backbone of so many menus.

'These kitchens are united in the knowledge that a standalone stock is just the beginning, however. Essential Cuisine pots are packed with the potential to do more. We’re calling on kitchens to join the Stock Exchange, swap out their existing product for a free full size pot and see the difference. We’re supremely confident that chefs won’t look back.”
