Prenzel Botany

Real Prenz-ence.

prenzel There’s a lot going on for this company. They produce natural award-winning culinary products, have two stores in Auckland (Botany and Whitford), but the emphasis is on food as gifts. They literally have a basket for every occasion, but all products are available separately.

The range is substantial: infused salts (in both Garlic and Manuka), made using New Zealand sea salt; vinaigrettes, such as Citrus and Avocado, a dozen Infused Rice Bran Oils, which are exceptional in stir fries, and as replacements to standard cooking oils; a Vincon in both Red and White, which are a pre-reduced wine stocks for casseroles, marinades and all manner of sauces, and a Flambe to save you setting fire to dinner guests.

The dessert range includes Tipsy Cherries (Marlborough cherries preserved in brandy), and Tipsy Topping Mintymulu, a stunning liquid after dinner mint.

There’s also several (also) award winning liqueurs; the Limoncello is one of the best New Zealand varieties we’ve tried.

  • I made the Expresso bread and butter pudding, but had to change it slightly as I am Coeliac. In place of the Expresso Liquer, I used Double Choc dessert glaze, and left the Butterscotch liquer out. When cooked I mixed 1 tsp Nescafe coffee to the double choc dessert glaze and pored it over the puddings. Very nice!
