Sugar, Butter, Marg, Lard….
As I child I remember these four items would appear at the top of my mother’s weekly shopping list – I’m not sure it has changed that much now but for me – my essential ingredients in my kitchen are aromes. Since discovering the sheer variety of aromes I seem to find a use in every dish I create. Passion Fruit, Hazlenut, Basil, Crab, Lavender, Wild Strawberry are just a few of the flavours available – there’s even Sea Urchin! Give an instant boost to any natural flavour!
The many advantages of aromes include:
Effective – only a few drops are necessary to enhance a sauce, just like using quality fresh ingredients
Economic – concentrated and can be kept a long time. No waste and no storage problems.
Easy to use – the bottles have a special dropper allowing perfect dosing
Always available – available all year round which means you don’t have to change your menu when certain fresh products are no longer in season.
Reassuring – easily rescue a bland dish just before serving it
Variety – a wide range of different aromas for every use and every taste
Convenient – the bottles are unbreakable and transparent like glass
Many chefs currently use aromes because they give them more creative possibilities, save time and guarantee results whether using them for simple preparations or gastronomic recipes.
These little bottles of loveliness are great for experimenting with flavours for icecream, make amazing cheesecakes, sauces, bread, coffee…anything and everything!
Cooking with aromes is easy – try one – it’s a shopping list staple! Check out the fantastic range of aromes here
