New brand of fine prepared foods debuts on cable TV shopping network
Ever So Saucy Foods by Chef Frank, the new brand of handmade, all-natural and tradition-inspired fine prepared food line, debuted on QVC Jan. 21, 2015, presented by creator Chef Frank Tramontano. Ever So Saucy fine foods range from hors d’oeuvre such as Filet Mignon Wellington Bites, Crab Tarts and Gorgonzola & Apple Palmier Crisps to large format main dishes serving up to six, including Maine Lobster Lasagna, Wild Mushroom Truffled Mac n’ Cheese and Rigatoni Bolognese. All are prepared in Chef Frank’s Yaphank, N.Y., state-of-the-art FDA approved kitchen facility, where they are hand packed and then fresh frozen by a proprietary blast freeze process at minus-25 degrees F. The first Ever So Saucy product to premiere on QVC was Chicken Parmigiano Explosion, Chef Frank’s riff on a chicken parm “hero” (a.k.a. sub, hoagie, grinder or wedge) with large chunks of white meat, Chef Frank’s marinara sauce made with tomatoes imported from Italy, toasted semolina bread slices and mozzarella. At two-and-a-half pounds, it serves up to six after being re-heated and will be sold in a two-pack format – two of the two-and-half-pound dishes for a total of five pounds or up to some 12 servings.
