What We Do

We specialise in high quality, bespoke, sous vide cooked food production. Using water bath technology, precise temperature controls, and culinary creativity; we sous vide cook a wide range of products to meet customers’ specific requirements.

All our recipes are bespoke and individually created. No conveyor belt assembly lines here! Each product is carefully made, cooked to precise times and temperatures to achieve optimum eating quality. We then chill and hand pack in readiness for delivery.

We supply to various customers from home consumers, to semi-skilled chef, to top-end chefs alike. The aim is never to de-skill, but to provide busy chefs with a product that eases some of their daily stresses in the kitchen and on the pass.

Let us do the hard work, and keep yours as the finely skilled work. What grubworkz offer is a product that gives chefs more time and resources for you to do less of what you have to do, and more time to express their culinary innovation.
