We make our French Onion and Beef soup with Essential’s vegetable stock and use the fish stock in our most popular starter, mussels. The stocks are consistent and enable us to make our own creations with no requirement for a sauces chef. We could be scratch making for up to three days, but with this stock, we can make anything from a couple of dishes to 300 portions in 20 minutes. They are the closest to natural you can get, while other pre-prepared products on the market have bits floating in them, look greasy and don’t have the right consistency.
