Gravies, Sauces and Soup Mixes
The Chef's Companion® line of dry mixes deliver made from scratch taste with the convenience of Speed Scratch preparation. Choose from one of our original recipes or our new "Full Flavor" MSG and Trans Fat Free products to enjoy time and labor saving gravies and sauces that consistently outperform your expectations.
Simplicity and flexibility is the key to their success as each can be prepared either instantly or in a two step stove top method. Both perform equally as well and bring out that hearty savory taste that until now, only "made from scratch" possessed.
Use them alone as a classic topping to your center of the plate or side dishes or customize them by adding your favorite ingredients. Or, have some fun creating new serving applications like sandwich spreads or a layering them in a tasty rice bowl.

BBQ Sauce
Use our zesty BBQ sauce straight from the case or as a base to make your own secret recipe". We have the right blend for you and your customer's delicate BBQ taste buds.
