Whether it’s a case of preparing a mid-week dinner on the double or spoiling ourself with a long slow weekend indulgence – the Bay Tree’s new range of Slow Cook Sauces give consumers the freedom to rustle up a substantial, hearty dinner with minimal effort.
Created on the wholesome principle that ‘there’s nothing nicer than sharing a special winter warmer with your loved ones’ – The Bay Tree’s latest range is designed to make every day magic possible. Recognising that creating regular cosy suppers to enjoy by the fire can sometimes be impractical and improbable, Slow Cook Sauces deliver scratch cooked meals without the fuss. And coming from The Bay Tree, the range has been carefully honed, refined and perfected by trained chef and founder, Emma Macdonald.
So as the nights draw in – the only sensible option is to stock up on these store cupboard essentials. There are five timeless, comforting recipes to tempt consumers. These can be prepared in various ways, depending on the time available and the ingredients available.
- Hearty Beef Bourguignon – A fulsome French classic
- Zesty Orange Casserole – Add some citrus zing to chicken and pork
- Classic Minted Hotpot – Bring on the dumplings
- Rustic Cider and Apple Stew– A true harvest supper
- Comforting Cacciatore – Italian for ‘hunter’
Each ambient pouch weighs 350g and retails at £2.99; making the Slow Cook Sauces an appealing, cost effective way to feed the family.
Another added bonus is that the sauces can help reduce food waste by providing a tasty mealtime solution using up any leftover meat and vegetables.
Slow cooking is also ideally suited to cheaper cuts of meats such as ribs, ox cheek and shin of beef or neck of lamb.
The long and slow cooking process allows the meat to tenderise and impart its flavour throughout the stock. Using these often overlooked cuts also means that slow cooked foods are even more pocket and tummy friendly – providing economical meals that taste a million dollars.
Emma explains; “Convenience is such a huge driving force in the food
sector at the moment. However much we like to watch people creating or
posting online about their amazing meals, there is often little time to
replicate this at home for our families. Realistically, we all need a fall back
option from time to time. I firmly believe that this doesn’t mean having to
rely on popping a pizza in the oven. I hope that the Slow Cook Sauces encourage people to indulge in truly hearty, nourishing food. That’s the aim of the range – to take things slow and squeeze out a little more enjoyment from our meals.”
The Slow Cook Sauces range is now available.
