New Mini-Gratins Offer Big Benefits for Caterers

Aviko is continuing to serve up innovative new products for caterers with the launch of its Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke helping to add a real point of difference to the festive dining occasion.

The new 35g Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke feature specially selected potatoes, real cream, French Emmentaler cheese, chives, parsley and chervil for a side that it full of flavour.

Ready in just 12 minutes using a convection oven or 20 minutes in a traditional oven, the gratins are ideal when catering for large groups, providing a great tasting and consistent result for the demanding Christmas season.

Mohammed Essa, General Manager UK and Ireland, Aviko, said; “Our new Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke are a premium, ‘foodie’ side that will wow customers this Christmas. Kitchens are under a huge amount of pressure in December with customers expecting top-quality food no matter the party size. This new hassle-free, premium side will help caterers create a seasonal offering with ease, and leave time to focus on other key parts of their menu.”

Developed by chefs for chefs, Aviko’s Mini Gratins with Parsnip & Jerusalem Artichoke are now available in 10 x 1Kg cases and are the third new product initiative from the potato experts in 2014. Earlier this year Aviko launched Steam Blanched Potatoes and the innovative Bubble & Squeak Rounds that are helping caterers tap into the all-day dining trend.

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 like hash browns and innovative hash brown bites, through to premium fries, mash, roasties and much more.
