2020 has no doubt been an extremely strange year for all of us. As this year comes to a close, we’re looking ahead to Christmas day, and thinking about how best you can help your customers have a great day. (after all, we all certainly deserve it!)
One of the biggest stresses that Christmas brings with it is that all-important Christmas dinner. Even the most natural cooks amongst us can feel a great deal of pressure when this responsibility falls on their shoulders.
But, not to worry. Here at Field & Fare, we have put together a guide on how our products can make cooking Christmas dinner as easy (and, dare I say it, fun!) as possible. By utilising our innovative cooking and roasting bags, you can give your customers the option to step away from the stove and join in the festivities, safe in the knowledge that the results will be perfect. If you work in hospitality or retail, our bags could be a saving grace, making your job easier when it comes to giving your clients great meals with no fuss.
What’s more, there will be less washing up! Everyone surely has that one their Christmas list…
Although the veg is certainly not the most exciting part of a Christmas dinner, it is still an integral part of the spread. So, we believe it should be done right.
Offering your customers a steam cooking bag with their vegetables will help them to achieve evenly-cooked, flavoursome vegetables every time. Not only are you adding value to them, but pre-packaging an array of seasonal vegetables, perhaps with the addition of some seasonings, is a great way to add margin to your products.
The steam cooking bags really are so simple. The client can choose their vegetables, add seasonings, sauces or even flavoured butter, and you can seal it for them to pop into the microwave. Another benefit here is that, if the oven is full of things already, the microwave can be a great space-saving option. Advise the customer that they don’t even need to pierce the film as the bags will vent by themselves to relieve pressure.
Now, for the pigs in blankets. The nation is passionate about these wonderful sides and we are no exception. If you’re a butcher, this is your time to shine! Why not go the extra mile for your customers and present your pigs in blankets in our second kind of cooking bag, which is suitable for the oven or grill. Our bags ensure the sausages will cook through well and still get that lovely browning on the outside, and your customers will really appreciate how easy you’ve made it for them.
Our cooking bags are also suitable to be refrigerated, so you can prep everything for your clients, and they can simply keep it ready for an even smoother Christmas day!
The Main Event
Let’s talk turkey (or any other meat for the less traditional out there). People want moist, tender meat and a beautiful, crispy outside.
Our roasting bags take the guesswork out of cooking and means your customers can relax, safe in the knowledge that the turkey will really live up to expectation. If you’re selling meat, why not supply a roasting bag with it and impress your clients with your forethought.
The turkey skin will brown without even removing the bag, as our technology ensures it will do this anyway. Your clients will certainly thank you when they’re sipping a glass of prosecco rather than having to continually check the turkey. What a great way to gain more customer loyalty!
We hope we have provided you with some inspiration on how to up your game this Christmas, and the team at Field & Fare wish you a very happy Christmas and hope you have a wonderful 2021.
