Did you know that Asian food is the UK’s fastest growing cuisine? With a market value of £3bn!* The rate of growth in popularity for this style of food is insane, but I can totally see why, because since I started experimenting with Asian ingredients (specifically Pan-Asian) I literally can’t stop.
It all came about when a few of my clients started manufacturing Pan-Asian ingredients and I began to research and find out more about this fascinating, absolutely delicious cuisine. I’ve always been a fan of a noodle broth but now I’m experimenting daily with more unusual (for me) ingredients. Edamame beans, miso, Sriracha, udon, rice wine vinegar, Gochujang, the list goes on.
And limes. I’m sure everyone agrees that limes literally make everything taste like a million dollars (but much less papery).
Next on my list to tackle – KIMCHI.
If you work as a caterer in the hospitality market I would massively encourage you to try Essential Cuisine’s new Asian range. So good. I never want my sample pots to end! Check them out here: http://bit.ly/1TMPVnB
