The company says caterers need to give their party offerings as much consideration as they do their Christmas menu, to ensure success and really drive profits. John McKears, Foodservice Sales Manager from Jus-Rol Professional explains:
“The big danger is that the party buffet menu may get overlooked in the festive rush. That would be a mistake as not everyone will want to sit down for a formal meal. Christmas is a great social occasion – one of the year’s biggest opportunity for a get-together – and a time when people really set out to enjoy themselves. This is when buffets really come into their own, providing an easy to eat, casual dining experience that won’t interfere with celebrations and socialising.”
No Christmas party buffet would be complete without winter warming pastry, especially vol-au-vents – the classic party favourite completes any offering and makes the perfect casing for a range of fillings.
Making and handling pastry in such high volumes can be a challenge, pastry can be temperamental at the best of times with no guarantee of the end result – this is where Jus-Rol’s pre-prepared pastry really comes into its own.
John explains, “Many caterers worry that in the Christmas rush the kitchen won’t have the time or experience to prepare party buffet dishes in high volume from scratch, and yet the offering needs to reach the same standard that customers have come to expect when dining off the main menu.”
“In such a hectic kitchen environment, it makes practical and commercial sense to use pre-prepared ingredients. Using Jus-Rol Professional will simplify and speed up the preparation process, leaving time for caterers to focus on other parts of their offering.”
For a classic festive dish that never fails to delight, Jus-Rol Professional’s Vol-au-Vents offer a fail-safe option. They are available in party, medium and king size and cater for a range of needs. The perfect accompaniment to Christmas party drinks, try filling with Brie & Cranberry, Red Onion & Goats Cheese or whatever takes your fancy!
Jus-Rol Professional offers a wide range of delicious canapés perfect for the Christmas party season from tempting Red Onion and Goats Cheese Tapas to tasty meat and vegetable. The entire range is made from quality ingredients –and of course features Jus-Rol’s famous pastry. As the canapés are frozen, they deliver a consistent and delicious result making them a must-stock item for caterers this Christmas.
