The Craft Guild of Chefs gives its Endorsement to the Premium collection of freeze dried herbs from Schwartz for Chef

The Craft Guild of Chefs endorses only the finest. The Premium collection of freeze dried herbs from Schwartz for Chef has been approved for endorsement by the Craft Guild of Chefs by passing its “Fit for Purpose and Quality Assurance” assessment.

With five in the range, the Premium collection offers a range of specially selected herbs that have been freeze dried for a superior strength of flavour and a bright appearance; offering the closest alternative to fresh herbs. And because only the highest quality herbs are used, only a small amount is required to deliver maximum flavour.

Ideal for any busy kitchen, the Premium range gives improved visual appearance, with better shape and texture than regular dried herbs, and when added to liquids such as soups, sauces and even plain water, they rehydrate instantly.

James Millward, Commercial Director, McCormick (UK) Ltd adds, “We are delighted to have achieved this endorsement as it recognises the high quality of our products and the high added value of dried herbs in terms of taste, flavour and practicality. Dried herbs are a great solution and we are keen to engage with chefs to demonstrate how valuable they can be in any kitchen.”

Schwartz for Chef herbs and spices are heat treated for microbiological safety making them safe to use, even without cooking. By using the resource of its parent company, McCormick, Schwartz for Chef only supplies 100% pure and authentic products.

Recipes Mixes are available in Mediterranean Herb, Moroccan, Tex Mex, Indian Curry, Savoury Mince and Chilli varieties
