"I have always enjoyed using Tenderstem in my recipes and have been a fan for many years. When I was asked to develop some recipes using Tenderstem, it took very little convincing to get me on board! It is such a wonderful product; highly nutritious, very sweet and tender and such a versatile ingredient. It is the perfect green vegetable accompaniment to any dish and can be used in so many ways to create delicious recipes.”
