With Far East flavours seeing huge interest across the foodservice spectrum, Country Range has bolstered its product portfolio with the addition of an authentic flavoured Katsu Curry Cooking Sauce and Panko Breadcrumbs.
- Country Range Katsu Curry Sauce – 2.3kg tub
A fantastic addition to the Country Range global cooking sauce range, the new Katsu Curry sauce is a sweeter, Japanese style curry sauce that is now widely seen on the high street. It’s suitable for vegans and great to accompany a wide array of vegetables or meat.
- Country Range Panko Breadcrumbs – 1kg and 10kg packs
Often the breadcrumbs of choice in the world of fine dining, panko breadcrumbs absorb less oil than regular breadcrumbs ensuring a lighter, supremely crunchy, golden finish every time. Brilliant for classic Japanese dishes like the Katsu Curry or deep-fried shrimp, they are just as good in scotch eggs, chicken Kyiv, fish cakes, croquettes, onion rings and lots more.
Created for the makers, the new duo are fantastic when used to make the classic Japanese Chicken Katsu Curry, where chicken is coated and fried in panko breadcrumbs before being served with the curry sauce and rice. For a vegan option, chefs can replace the chicken with a variety of vegetables or meat free alternatives.
The Katsu and Panko launch follows the roll-out of an exciting brand refresh across the award-winning Country Range own brand portfolio including a new logo and branding, vibrant new packaging designs, eye-catching photography and the introduction of a new premium tier of products, under the Country Range Signature brand.
Rachel Porter, Country Range Group’s Marketing Manager, said: “Many caterers just don’t have the time or space to make sauces from scratch constantly so ready to use sauces are key if they want to offer authentic tastes from around the world. Our new Katsu Curry Sauce recipe has been specially developed to ensure it is packed with the flavours and spice profile of the Japanese original. As well as being ready to use, it’s also a versatile ingredient to use across a whole host of recipes, such as a base for fragrant coconut curries or as a delicious filling for chicken Kyivs and rice balls, coated in our new Panko Breadcrumbs.”
