This week we celebrate the 24th Annual Curry Week which takes place from the 3rd – 9th October 2022. It has been a difficult year but for one week only, let’s talk about curry instead of the economy!

Since the 1970’s curry has become a staple in ready meal consumption, with millions consumed every single week!

One way Food producers can keep up with this high demand of ethnic ready meals is by using the BCH Cook & Vacuum Cool solution with the FlexiChef Recipe Manager System to create the complete high-performance system for the production of sauces and rice.

Another popular method for the production of ethnic meals is the BCH Bratt Pan, which can be utilised for a wide range of cooking functions including shallow or stir frying, braising, boiling, steaming, poaching or stewing. This versatile pan is also used extensively in the ethnic ready meals industry for cooking basmati and pilau rice using the total absorption cooking methods, as well as for the production of curry sauces.

This processing method is most popular for Food Producers who want to ‘Develop the Flavour’ – as the Bratt Pan allows rapid sealing or searing of meat and vegetables.

Our various  technologies  guarantee foods are cooked and cooled rapidly with repeatability, whilst benefiting from a smaller footprint and all with reduced labour and energy costs!

It has often been said that curry is the new national dish of Britain and it’s certainly easy to see why!
