Recipe development - mother and son

Recipe development - mother and son

Steenbergs is very much a family business, not just Axel and Sophie and their children, but also the people who work for us find their whole family have become part of the wider Steenbergs family.  Sally Roberts, who helps with recipe development at Steenbergs, had a wonderful surprise when she was creating over the holidays...

I had a wonderful surprise yesterday, and the realisation that habits can be absorbed and implemented by the next generation! Having fed my 15 year old son some homemade sausage rolls, who has only had the cuisine experience of cooking scrambled egg or sausages for breakfast, he decided he wanted to make some spicy sausage rolls. Ingredients purchased (rolled-out pastry, Cumberland sausages, leek and coriander sausages rather than plain sausage meat as we couldn’t find any at such short notice!) I left him in the kitchen and went to an appointment.

Upon return, beautifully tempting sausage rolls (2 flavours!) were cooling, list of Steenbergs products used in his recipe recorded on paper and a photo had been taken of the finished product! ‘Next time, I will start with unflavoured sausage meat Mum’ he said! For George's recipes 1 and 2 click on the numbers.

Spice - season - savour.

If you would like to share your recipes with us, we would love to hear from you. Recipes can come from anyone - the only proviso is that they use some Steenbergs products and that you like the end result!
