Creed Foodservice’s Christmas 2021 range unveiled
Experiences to share with loved ones are on the menu for Creed Foodservice’s Christmas 2021 range.
The Country Range Group member’s product list for this year’s celebrations include an array of festive classics with a twist, as well as alternative mains.
Sharing food designed to cater to lots of tastes and preferences is also set to be popular, and is represented in Creed’s range.
And with consumer research from KAM suggesting nearly 30% of consumers intend to visit restaurants more often this Christmas – even compared to pre-Covid levels – there’s going to be a big demand.
Among the sharers on offer from Creed are a host of flavours and textures from around the world, including colourful Japanese gyozas, spicy corn fritters and macaroni bites from the southern US states, to red velvet prawns.
This point of difference extends into the mains, with alternatives to the usual turkey dinner available in the form of skin-on sea bass fillets, and vegetable wellingtons in butternut squash and beetroot, and carrot and spice marmalade.
It’s not all different, though, with the classics also represented. Hot sandwiches and fully-loaded burgers can be decked with pigs in blankets and Christmas condiments such as homemade sprout and carrot slaw, jewelled with dried cranberries, melted Brie and cranberry sauce. Whilst the traditional turkey dinner can be brought to life with an array of incredible vegetables and a range of meat cuts, from pork belly, through to stuffed turkey joints.
Tasty desserts such as a Jaffa Mountain Cake and a Black Cherry Chocolate Cake complete the new-look range and Creed’s Executive Development Chef Rob Owen believes it stands out from the crowd.
“Christmas this year is about bringing back the magic for diners, to create an experience that everyone remembers,” said Owen.
“But, it’s not without a certain amount of caution that operators will go into this season. We’ve worked incredibly hard to make our festive range spectacular, introducing an array of new products and dishes, whilst ensuring it works for groups of all sizes and with different dietary requirements and preferences.
“We’re looking forward to supporting our customers this year and are happy to advise on the best way to structure menus to give the wow factor, whilst ensuring they remain manageable for many operating with reduced staff numbers.”Christmas Country Range Group Creed Foodservice
