Meadow Vale Foods’ highly successful Chef to Chef Menu Development Days have been taken online in an exciting new development to meet the challenges of today’s environment.
Managing Director at Meadow Vale Foods, Nigel O’Donnell commented, ‘Whilst it’s very positive that large sectors of the Food Service Industry have been given the go ahead to re-open, caterers across all sectors are forced to rethink their operating models to comply with the Government guidance.’ Nigel continued, ‘With our Chef Live Demos we are able to offer customers the support they need to develop simplified yet innovative menus to meet the demands of their customers whilst managing the additional requirements of social distancing both front and back of house.’
The Chef Live Demo service offers customers a chance to discuss menu development tailored specifically to their business. A sample pack is sent ahead of the meeting to cook along and try out the ideas with the Meadow Vale Foods’ team.
‘With many of our customers looking for help to develop menus to suit the changing circumstances, we wanted to find an alternative approach, hence the launch of our Live Chef Demos. The Demos are tailored to the specific customer needs and concerns’ explained Chris Moyes, Development Chef at Meadow Vale Foods. Chris added, ‘The customer receives a tailored pack the day before the call and can cook along with me. The feedback so far has been excellent and although we’d much prefer to invite customers to our development kitchen, times have changed and we needed to adapt to continue to help our customers.’
