In the pursuit of great flavour, we’re going to going to extraordinary lengths as your inspiring cooking partner.
To make great tasting meals, you need to have a lot of love. Love enough to select your ingredients carefully. Love for the warm glow of the stove as things start to heat up. Love for the people you’re feeding, so they can taste in every mouthful how much you care. To make great tasting meals, you really have to love everything about food. And we do. At Continental we love food in the same way you love food.
Great flavour starts with great ingredients
Flavour. It’s the difference between a decent dish and mouth-watering meal; every forkful should be exceptional. That’s why we go to extraordinary lengths in pursuit of great flavour, because we know it means a tastier meal for you and your family.
And to get the best flavour, you need the best ingredients. We go to great lengths to ensure the vegetables we use are packed with flavour. In fact, we work closely with many farms to nurture the best quality produce to ensure that the vegetables we use in our products are the pick of the crop. Sometimes, we go further afield to source rare ingredients, like the sweet, smoky Espelette chillies from the Basque country in Spain’s Pyrenées.
A passionate bunch of chefs
Using their instinct and expertise, our chefs take these beautiful ingredients and skilfully evolve exciting recipes. They’re a creative bunch, professionally trained to the highest standard, with vast experience in real kitchens, many of them in highly awarded restaurants.
Each finds inspiration in experiences old and new, and from other cultures too. Take Luigi Carola, who’s visited 67 countries in search of new ideas and flavours. Then there’s John Doyle, a proud Irishman who’s greatly influenced by his national cuisine; who creates interesting takes on tasty, traditional recipes with all the flair and flavour you want from home cooking.
There’s always more
Extraordinary lengths. Two important words we use to describe how we make delicious food. Two words that mean always going the extra mile, not accepting mediocrity, never giving up – an attitude shared by everyone at Continental, from our hard-working farmers to our dedicated chefs. That’s why we’re always looking for new ways to satisfy your curiosity and your hunger to put different dishes on the table. We bring flavours from around the world to our kitchen to create recipes you can serve up at home.
Not only that, we’re working hard to make our impact on the planet as small as possible – and yours, too. We’re implementing sustainable farming processes, working to reduce and recycle the packaging we use, cutting back on our greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing our focus on nutrition. All of this is better for the environment, which means better food for you.
A little help we’re delighted to give
We know how you value good, nutritious, flavourful food, and authentic home cooking. It feels good to cook and even better to bring pleasure to the ones you love, through the food you serve up. Therefore, rest assured; whether you’re a seasoned chef or casual cook, Continental will be your cooking partner. It’s a little help we’re delighted to give.
