Essential Cuisine Raises £2000 for the Culinary Ability Awards

We’re proud to say we have raised £2,000 for the Culinary Ability Awards, the not-for-profit social enterprise that champions people with disabilities working in the hospitality industry.

The Stock People raised the sum over four days at the Hotelympia 2016 during the launch of the new range of Asian stocks. By pledging £1 for every Asian sample pot it gave away to chefs and caterers at the event, the company raised a grand total of £2000.

The funds will now go directly to the Culinary Ability Awards, as the organisation begins to realise its long term goal of becoming an official hospitality training provider for people with disabilities.

Nigel Crane, The Stock Father of Essential Cuisine, said: “It was another great year for us at Hotelympia, with our stand proving popular across the four days. This is evident from the number of sample pots of the Asian range we gave away, and the total we raised for the Culinary Ability Awards as a result.

“We could not be more proud to be associated with the Culinary Ability Awards, a fantastic charity which is close to all our hearts. The work they do helping individuals with disabilities break into our industry is admirable and goes to show that everyone deserves a chance to shine in this fantastic industry.”

With three distinctive flavour profiles, fragrant Aromatic Stock Base, rich and meaty Master Stock Base and traditional Miso Broth Base, Essential Cuisine’s Asian range is the latest in the company’s wide range of high quality stocks, providing chefs with an easy to use base without compromising on quality.
