United Kingdom based grocer Waitrose recently launched its new line of Private Brand frozen foods, Waitrose Frozen. The new products will allow customers to whip up a delicious meal in minutes, straight from the freezer, with no need to defrost. Customers may choose from meals for one, or create a feast for the entire family with risotto and pastas.
Using techniques found in five-star kitchens, the dishes are created using sous-vide process, which literally means ‘under vacuum’; they are then cooked long and slow in the sealed bag. The dishes include Beef in Ale, ox cheek slow-cooked in a Boddingtons ale sauce, Beef Goulash, tender Lamb Tagine and Pork in Cider. Frozen risotto and pastas are individually frozen to allow for single servings. Innovative and ingenious single-portion frozen sauces will include Green Pesto, Tomato Ragu and Cheddar Cheese Sauce.
