We’d love to hear from you.
We didn't invent classic French stocks and traditional sauces. Their origin is in the countryside and villages, the kitchens and cafés, in France over a century ago. This was a time when meat was scarce (and not very good) and vegetables, herbs, and wines were plentiful. Stocks and traditional sauces were borne out of need and a desire for great tasting food. Through great trial and error cooks learned to prepare - from scratch - fine flavors through extracting, blending, and simmering pure food ingredients. What were once barely acceptable meals became more than palatable; good food became simply elegant, be it a common peasant stew or a duck confit. This great tradition that began over a century ago is still taught in the finest cooking schools in the world. Any chef worth his or her salt takes great pride in knowledge of the French sauce tradition. Fine chefs everywhere still practice the art of sauce making, either by using our pure stock reductions or laboring hours, with great patience and at great expense, to do it entirely from scratch. Some of the finest sauce innovations by acclaimed chefs have at their core the French tradition. Julia Child loved it. It is the essence of all good cooking.
At More Than Gourmet, faithfully honoring the classic tradition is our mission. We seek to protect and preserve it, by keeping to its culinary principles and by crafting authentic soup, stock, and sauce foundations in every product. As responsible stewards, this means that we must practice the classic techniques and culinary principles in every product we make for you. It means no shortcuts and no compromises. It means that we will not succumb to the modern day practice, used by many sauce makers, of imitating authentic by concocting flavor agents in a food chemists' lab. That is something we cannot do if we are to remain as honest stewards of the classic tradition. We take our stewardship seriously. It's who we are. It is our Sauce Heritage.
Cooking Stocks: Ready-to-Use Beef, Chicken, and Vegetable Stock
These cooking stocks are the real deal, and prepared for you as stocks are meant to be: with simple and pure ingredients that provide rich, robust flavors as they simmer in your recipe. The longer they cook, the more flavorful they become through a natural reduction. As your MTG cooking stock reduces while being cooked, the flavors become more robust yet do not dominate your recipe. Stocks as they are meant to be, from your stock experts at MTG. Many of you will be happy to know that these cooking stocks are gluten and lactose free and lower in sodium than most commercial stocks. Vegans love our pure vegetable stock. While we can't guarantee you'll love our cooking stocks as much as we do, we can all but guarantee you'll understand what's in the ingredient statement.
ALL of our stocks are produced with scrupulous care and uncompromising quality. Our chefs have high standards and are fussy about how our authentic cooking stocks taste. Great taste comes naturally, which is why our chefs created a cooking stock for you without excess sodium, without MSG, without artificial flavor agents, enhancers and preservatives.
