Why Cooks Love Us

Why Cooks love us

To be honest, it hasn’t always been love at first sight. It’s human nature to be skeptical when someone claims their products are authentic, especially in the culinary world where there are so many imposters masquerading as the real deal. We get it. We’re up to the challenge and accept the burden of proof good cooks demand. Chefs who once dismissed us are now dear friends and great customers. We view each chef we serve as someone special, not just another customer but a real member of the MTG family. Our family keeps growing each day.

It’s a privilege to serve chefs, one we have to earn. There are some challenges to overcome when we first meet: chefs wonder who and what MTG is (perception vs. reality), there's a natural fear of change. There are many questions to answer, for example: “How can you have a high quality product if it saves time and money? Seems like a contradiction in terms.” (Yes, it does; no, it isn’t.)  “How can a short cut to convenience be culinary?"   "Isn’t the industry moving away from the classic tradition?" (Yes, it has, and no, it isn’t.) The fundamentals of good cooking apply to all cuisines, classic or contemporary, Asian, French, Italian, Indian, or Mediterranean. And the need for the profound skills of a saucier aren't going away. To quote Saveur magazine, “the ancient art of the saucier is alive and well in the kitchens of Paris and beyond."  Here’s a statement we hear often: "Commercial bases have artificial ingredients, and that’s not culinary."  We agree.  When we say our products are Culinary Grade® we mean it. But don’t take our word for it, simply read the label.
