I had some fun yesterday, it was the first day of summer and the first time this year that I have used the ESSE Firestone!

As always, it was brilliant. It was a reasonable day for it but I don’t mind whether it’s raining or beautiful sunshine – any weather is the weather for cooking on the Firestone!

About ESSE:

ESSE is a proud British company, manufacturing a huge range of high quality Stoves, Range Cookers and Firewalls. ESSE is based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in the Ouzledale Works, which is steeped in stove-building history. Each ESSE stove can trace its ancestry all the way back to 1854.

Arguably the UK's longest standing stove manufacturer, ESSE counts some extremely famous names among its client list including pioneering explorers Shackleton and Scott, the 'lady with the lamp' Florence Nightingale and, more recently, the famous team at River Cottage.

ESSE's mission remains the same today as it has been for more than 150 years: to provide stoves and range cookers which are built around energy-efficiency and affordability.

The selling points of James Smith's original brochure also hold true over a century and a half later: “Great economy in point of fuel, great economy in point of cleanliness.”

Every product is hand-built with care in Britain and designed to last a lifetime.

Another succesful cooker demo day at W&H Supplies

clip_image001On Wednesday 23rd February we welcomed Daniel Blewitt, ESSE Southern Sales Representative, back to our store for another successful cookery demonstration day. Guests were able to see an ESSE range cooker in action, learn about all the features and sample some delicious food.

“I am happy to say the day was a great success. We had some lovely visitors join us to see the ESSE EL13 AMP in action.” explained Lucy Lewis, Sales Assistant at W&H Supplies.

One guest commented that it was “wonderful to be able to see the ESSE in action and that the food was delicious” while another said “The food was delicious & it was great to be able to get all the answers I needed before I make my purchase, it’s a brilliant way for people to see what these range cookers can really do.”.

Guests were treated to braised flat mushrooms with soft polenta & dressed shredded greens together with spicy mushroom wraps with garlic & cumin yoghurt inside homemade tortilla breads.

The ESSE EL 13Amp is an impressive range cooker which offers the best of both worlds. It combines the classic heavy duty, reliable ESSE design with excellent energy efficiency, electric power, low running costs and a variety of modern colour schemes. Read more about it here.

W & H Supplies would like to say a huge thanks to Daniel for hosting another great event at our store. Our next Cooker demonstration is on Tuesday March 15th from 2PM to 5PM.

Looking for the perfect pancake recipe?

blueberries-919029_1920The beauty of pancakes is that they are a blank canvas. Sure, everyone has their favourite fillings but there’s no end of different toppings that you can experiment with. So whether you’re looking for sweet, savoury, health conscious or totally indulgent pancakes, there is bound to be something out there for you.

However, whilst the best filling for a pancake will always come down to your own personal choice, there’s no denying that range cookers are one of the best tools for the job. Here, Gill Meller of River Cottage talks us through how he uses an ESSE  range cooker to prepare her pancake day treats and also offers some inspiration for unusual toppings and fillings.
