Blount details thanksgiving lineup for foodservice
Blount Fine Foods, a leading manufacturer of hand-crafted artisan soups and seafood products, today released its Thanksgiving Must-Haves as a reminder for restaurant and foodservice customers to be sure to enhance their traditional offering with contemporary taste, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to Blount Fine Foods.
Blount's Executive Chef Jeff Wirtz suggests two special soups and two complementary dips to round out the holiday menu in any restaurant. They are:
- Thanksgiving-Every-Day Soup - Temp diners in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving with this memorable combination of turkey, wild rice blend, cranberries, cream and sherry and they will truly give thanks. This trendy, hearty soup is great served in a bread bowl or pastry shell.
- Butternut Squash & Apple Soup - Wirtz and his team simmer and puree squash together with red delicious apples and fresh rosemary sprigs. They then add French sourdough bread and a touch of light cream to thicken the soup perfectly.
- Caramelized Onion Dip - From Blount's newest, and rapidly growing line, comes an instant holiday masterpiece that is sure to stay in demand all year long. Whipped cream cheese is infused with sweet caramelized onion to form an instant classic.
- Crab & Ale Dip - The sweetness of crab meat and the slight bitterness of ale combine wonderfully in this dip that enlivens chips, crackers, bread, vegetables...and any dipping food.
"Families that choose to dine out for Thanksgiving still want the nostalgic feeling of the home-cooked meals we all remember from years gone by," said Wirtz. "With the Blount Thanksgiving lineup, we have captured the flavors, aromas and textures of this uniquely American holiday meal experience."
All three Autumn Soups are sold refrigerated in cases of four, 4-pound ready-to-heat bags. The dips come in cases of 32, four-ounce frozen disks.
