Fun, easy-to-use, and very economical, a drop or two of these flavorful essences transforms an everyday dish into something exciting and luxurious. They enliven everything from soups, salads, and main courses to ice cream, cakes, and mixed drinks.
Use these flavors to boost the intensity of ingredients like powdered ginger or fresh basil; substitute them for out-of-season herbs or unavailable spices; or think like a chef and layer other seasonings or Chef’s Essences and Sprays together to create amazing new flavor combinations. Be sure to try them in cocktails. The citrus oils (bergamot, grapefruit, lime, orange) should be kept in the refrigerator to preserve their flavor for many months. All other essences will keep indefinitely at room temperature.
