“Cooking with Tenderstem® is an absolute joy, due to its ease, unique flavour and texture. The mild, yet vibrant flavours provide a wonderful cooking canvas for any flavour or accompaniment. It can be used in a range of different cuisines and brings the best out of the ingredients. Its tenderness means it is perfectly suited for refreshing summer dishes.”
