Essential Cuisine goes gluten-free across entire range

Essential Cuisine has removed the gluten content from its entire 50-strong range of products, recognising the marked growth in coeliac diners and those actively choosing a gluten-free lifestyle.

To celebrate the landmark move, the British manufacturer of stocks, sauces, gravies, jus, glaces and ready-to-use sauces, has created a gluten-free recipe book. Gloriously Gluten-Free is available to download now and showcases just some of the Essential Cuisine chef team’s best loved gluten-free recipes, created using its class-leading range.

From Classic Fish Pies to authentic Pork Cochinita Tacos, there’s a range of recipes to suit all levels of culinary expertise. Also included are handy hints and tips from the Essential brigade to help chefs give dishes a personal twist.

Essential Cuisine Senior Development Chef Jonathan Harvey-Barnes, commented, “The growth in coeliac diners and those choosing to live a gluten-free lifestyle has exploded in recent years with one in 100 now identifying as coeliac.

'As chefs, we know that it’s a subject that working kitchens take incredibly seriously. In a recent survey by the Change Group^, almost nine out of 10 chefs (89%) said they were taking food intolerances into account when planning menus and at 94%, gluten was the allergen given the most consideration.

“Kitchens are time pressured places, which is why many of them turn to high quality pre-made stocks as the perfect base of countless menu items. Stocks with no declarable allergens** provide much needed consistency and peace of mind for chefs, which is why we’ve moved to make our range entirely gluten-free. I

't’s one less thing for working kitchens to worry over. The new recipe book has been lovingly created to help chefs across all sectors craft great tasting, gluten-free food that absolutely everyone can enjoy.”
