Andy, our resident Innovation Chef, when asked where the innovation comes from, said:

Innovation can be driven by many factors such as seasonality, health, comfort, cost etc. In the case of Stokes Easy, the first product, Katsu, actually came from a memory of Rick’s [MD].

Rick remembered that he used to have Sausages with Mash and mild curry sauce. Katsu was a flavour profile that I think matched that memory. It’s mild, fruity and tangy; a sweet, really versatile Japanese-style curry, enriched with soy sauce, honey & coconut.

And he’s right – Katsu Curried Bangers ‘n’ Mash taste amazing.”

The hard work has been done

The hard work has already been done.

Each Meal-Making Sauce comes complete with a simple 3 x Step Recipe and tasty tips from Stokes’ Food Technician & Resident Chef, Andy.

For example: Mexican Shakshuka the EASY way

Salsa Roja is a Mexican inspired sauce of sweet red peppers, juicy tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and a little red chilli to create a rich ‘meal-maker’ with a gentle heat.

3 x steps:

  1. fry off to soften sliced red pepper and red onion.
  2. add the Salsa Roja, fresh tomatoes, kidney beans and simmer.
  3. crack and bake a couple of eggs in the oven and serve, garnished with avocado and feta cheese.
