Established in 2001, Essential Cuisine has already become one of the foremost suppliers of stocks, sauces and gravies to the UK’s foodservice and food manufacturing sectors.
Founder Nigel Crane trained under world famous chef Anton Mosimann at the Michelin starred Dorchester Hotel in London. As well as a distinguished career working in some of the country’s top kitchens, he has more than 15 years’ experience in technical product development.
Stocks are one of the cornerstones of a good kitchen, but whilst a good bought-in stock can deliver great taste in a chef’s cooking, a substandard stock can destroy it. These principles apply equally across catering and manufacturing.
Essential Cuisine’s chef led dedication ‘to be the best’ in terms of both taste and performance has set us apart as ‘the stock specialists’, based of a fusion of Culinary Skills, Technical Expertise and ingredient awareness.
We strive to supply you with the products that taste and perform like a chef’s own kitchen-made products, giving you the confidence to focus on the final dish.
With our wide range of Culinary Preparations, we hope you find something here that helps in your kitchen.
