The British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF), has launched a series of short videos to demonstrate how using frozen food can cut preparation time and food waste in professional kitchens.

BFFF teamed up with Lee Maycock, newly appointed Craft Guild of Chefs chairman, to produce the Frozen Food Shortcuts videos, highlighting the benefits of frozen food in professional kitchens.

The series of eight videos provide a resource for chefs looking for insightful hints and tips designed to not only enhance their preparation and cooking, but to also help them produce delicious, on-trend food, easily and cost effectively

Each video lasts between 30 seconds and three minutes and shows how frozen ingredients can provide an array of benefits for chefs and caterers.

Brian Young, chief executive of BFFF, said: “This new series of Frozen Food Shortcut videos really emphasises how frozen food can be a great resource for those working in the foodservice industry.

“Being able to work with an experienced and well-respected chef such as Lee Maycock gives the Frozen Food Shortcut videos added credibility.”

The series of eight videos provides five top frozen food tips for chefs, as well as three recipe videos that highlight the great-taste and versatility of frozen food.

The Frozen Food Shortcut videos focus on specific frozen ingredients and ways they can be used to benefit chefs, which fresh alternatives may not be able to offer in the same, convenient way.

Lee Maycock, chairman of The Craft Guild of Chefs, said: “Using frozen ingredients in a professional kitchen can be a great way to create a variety of great-tasting dishes. The versatility and time-saving aspect that frozen food offers can really benefit pubs, bars and other food outlets looking to offer diners a varied menu.

“Each video shows how using frozen ingredients can create dishes that pack a whole lot of flavour, and can provide chefs and caterers with the means to cut down on preparation time, reduce food waste and quickly prepare delicious, inventive dishes and innovative meal components.”

Brian concluded: “We’re confident that this video series providing top tips for chefs and caterers will be a useful resource for all those involved in food preparation in the foodservice sector.”

Available now to view on and  and via social media, the Frozen Food Shortcut videos provide a valuable resource for chefs looking to increase their use of frozen food and realise the benefits. To view the videos, please click here.
