Now you can have smoke without fire!

Schwartz for Chef has added Smoky Mesquite to the newly launched BBQ seasoning range, taking the total to four, enabling chefs to easily create a tasty BBQ menu for the forthcoming summer season.

James Millward, Commercial Director, McCormick UK Ltd; “This latest addition to the range coincides with Mexican Cuisine being named a ‘world intangible asset’ and our research indicates that it is still growing in popularity as consumers try spicier flavours. Mesquite BBQ Seasoning adds another dimension to the new range of BBQ Seasonings that we have just launched, giving chefs a very simple solution to adding a subtle smokiness to grilled food. Now you don’t even need a BBQ to create a charred effect and can offer outdoor eating indoors, no matter what the weather!”
