It’s a time for comforting, satisfying fayre, and a mix of innovative dishes alongside the traditional festive flavours that customers know and love.
This year, ensure your Christmas menu and party food hit all the right notes, with help from Prep Premium – it’s fantastic for adding depth of flavour to your menu throughout the festive season.
British scallops are at their absolute best over Christmas, and they’re ideal for a premium party canapé.
Wrap individual scallops in smoked streaky bacon, then brush with a little Prep Premium Smokehouse. Season with pepper, fry in butter until slightly caramelised on all sides, then serve on a cocktail stick – it’s a seasonal scallop pop!
Oriental inspired chicken wings are another guaranteed winner for the Christmas party menu. The aromatic garlic combines with the savoury sesame oil and salty soy sauce in a moreish finger-food that will have people coming back for seconds.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the centrepiece festive roast. The turkey reigns supreme, but for 2017, it pays to branch out and add some alternative meats to the menu.
Goose or duck are natural alternatives that customers will love. Roast the birds until the skin is crisp, then shred the meat, before drizzling it with orange & smokehouse dressing and serving in a wrap. Zingy and smoky, the dressing will add festive flavour and cut through the richness – ideal for putting a festive twist on a duck wrap for the lunchtime crowd.
Hearty winter dishes make excellent additions to the festive menu and you can’t go wrong with slow roasted pork shoulder or beef brisket. Serve simply with mash, seasonal veg and gravy. Brush the meat with SmokeHouse for extra depth of smoky flavour.
