Having recently tried your Asian range of stocks they are very authentic stocks close to the real thing, great for Ramens and Noodle pots. I visited Japan last year and especially enjoyed the flavours which your range has replicated, but the Asian range has so many uses rather than just Ramen broths as marinades and glazes. These fit perfectly for the current BBQ trend in the foodie scene.

We’ve been using Essential Cuisine now for 8 years, and when they came on the market, I thought they filled a niche very well. Their basic stocks and jus are extremely “essential”. The No1 gravies are absolutely perfect if you run a good gastro pub as, like the rest of Essential Cuisine’s products, they are near perfect. They have a rich depth of flavour and a very good viscosity and shine, as close to kitchen-made as you can get.
