Craft Guild of Chefs Awards Aviko Mini Gratins
Aviko’s new Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke and Mini Gratins with Asparagus & Parmesan have been awarded with an endorsement from the Craft Guild of Chefs – a testament to the consistently high quality they offer.
Following in the footsteps of Aviko’s Mash, Roast Potatoes and Cream & Cheese Gratins; the newly endorsed products offer caterers hassle-free premium sides which can be served up within minutes meaning operators are able to focus on other elements of their menu. Their superior long holding time – in excess of one hour – also makes them perfect for banqueting menus.
Tested by chefs throughout the foodservice market, the Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke – made with specially selected potatoes, real cream, French Emmentaler cheese, chives, parsley and chervil – and the Mini Gratins with Parmesan and Asparagus – made with fresh cream and lemon juice – were found to be “very tasty” with “lots of flavour”. It was also noted that they are “very easy to prepare”.
Mohammed Essa, General Manager UK and Ireland, Aviko, said; “Our products are developed by chefs for chefs and we’re extremely proud that the number of Craft Guild of Chefs endorsed products in our range is growing. This proves we’re not only continuing to serve up innovative products but caterers can also be assured that our range also delivers consistently high quality. Kitchens are often under a great deal of pressure during peak meal times so we strive to make menus easier for them.”
Aviko’s Mini Gratins can be ready in just 12 minutes using a convection oven or 20 minutes in a traditional oven, and are ideal when catering for large groups, providing a great tasting and consistent result.
Dedicated to foodservice and one of the biggest potato processors in the world, Aviko offers a range of chilled and frozen potato specialities from morning favourites such as Hash Browns and innovative Hash Brown Bites, through to Premium Fries, Mash, Roasties and much more.
