Chef Gabriel is the Western Regional Chef for Bonewerks traveled through Monterey with Brian Isaeff, Territory Manager on the Central Coast for US Foodservice San Francisco.

Bonewerks, originally called CulinArte´, was founded in 1998 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The company offers chefs a world exclusive—a line of pure and all-natural traditional stock reductions, providing them with the luxury of having the foundations for great sauces at their fingertips.

The foundation of any great stock is the bones. Bonewerks starts with fresh bones and oven roasts them to perfection. After adding the perfect blend of fresh vegetables, herbs, and spices, our chefs carefully monitor them in Bonewerks' state-of-the-art kitchen. The process of simmering, skimming, and reducing takes more than 24 hours per batch!

Our Glace line is true to form, using only a single species of bones. They are 100% pure, all natural, with no salt, wheat-free, gluten-free, no added gelatin, no artificial coloring, no added flavors, no dairy, no extracts, fat-free, trans fat-free, and carb-free.

Reduced, first-draw stocks thickened and seasoned for convenience and consistency. Use these premium sauces as is, or add your own distinctive signature.

The finest quality lamb, pork, duckling, and beef are oven roasted and infused with our premium Classic Demi Glace then slow braised for hours to achieve a perfect profile every time.

This economical, ready-to-serve sauce can be turned into a signature small sauce by simply adding an ingredient such as horseradish, mushrooms or peppercorns.
