Essential Cuisine, the chef-led stocks and sauces company, is set to launch six new street-food inspired seasonings on Stand F730 at the forthcoming Hotel, Restaurant and Catering show (HRC), under a bold new sub-brand ‘Street Food Chef’.
In a distinct departure from its classically-inspired range, the new seasonings take inspiration from global street-food trends, allowing chefs to unleash their creativity and offer diners a taste of the most popular flavours from around the world.
Held in the kitchens at Exeter College and inviting chefs across the region aged 19-24 to cook in the bright spotlight of competition, the rules were simple; 90 minutes to create three courses for three diners, using three compulsory proteins; partridge, Dover sole and mussels.
We recommend ‘Essential Book of Soups’, ‘From Garden to Kitchen’, and ‘The Essential Book of British Classics’.VIEW ALL RECIPE BOOKS >
