From the start of our collaboration with Marco Pierre White, we've always been inspired by his creativity and his unique perspective on our range of KNORR ingredients for caterers.

Now, together with Marco, we have created a fantastic resource full of ideas to inspire you.

Visit our new site, www.makeitlikemarco.co.uk, and watch Marco talk exclusively about the day-to-day challenges of running a successful restaurant.  He offers advice drawn from his long and varied career; from the early days right through to the running of his international portfolio of restaurants. Marco talks honestly about his career, including his time running and working within the kitchen at Harvey's which he refers to as like a "brotherhood". T see the video click here. He also talks frankly about one of his greatest tips for success; the use of convenience products.  His view is simple. "˜If the product is better than you can make yourself and you don't have the resources to make it anyway, then use it.' It's here that Marco's advocacy of KNORR Bouillons and Seasonings really comes to life. Watch the video here.  Also on the site, discover Marco's 10 top tips for great steaks - starting with his "˜Steak Challenge', using KNORR Paste Bouillon as a steak seasoning. It's a simple 3 step process: 1)     Take KNORR Beef Paste Bouillon and add a little olive oil 2)     Mix into a fine paste and massage onto a steak 3)     Use the paste to season other side of the steak in the pan As Marco says "Many people have said to me that when they've tasted a steak seasoned with KNORR Paste Bouillon, that it's the best steak they've ever had in their lives. Everyone has their own opinion, all I'm saying is 9 out of 10 chefs who have tested my way of seasoning steak agreed KNORR gives a better taste" Try Marco's Steak Taste Challenge for yourself using the three steps above, and take time to look through the site and discover what makes Marco the successful restaurateur that he is and how he can help your menu, your business and your kitchen. Plus you will also find FREE recipes, tips and downloadable Make It Like Marco desktop backgrounds waiting for you and much, much more. It's all at http://www.makeitlikemarco.co.uk/
