With summer finally here, it's time for chefs to tap into the UK's love of Mediterranean fayre by launching a sun-friendly menu that customers will love during lazy hot summer days. Offering a beautiful array of salads, pastas and fish dishes will certainly help get consumers in the mood for summer.
AAK Foodservice is Europe's leading manufacturer of speciality oils and the unique PrepTM Premium range will inspire chefs wishing to create authentic Mediterranean cuisine that will stimulate memories of the al fresco dining experience customers have enjoyed while on holiday.
The flavour-rich oils are created using a unique infusion process combining premium quality olive oil and sunflower oil with fresh ingredients. While PrepTM Premium Balsamic Vinegars and Balsamic Glaze, which originate from the traditional region of Modena in Italy, are matured in wooden casks to enhance their distinctively rich and sweet flavour.
"Chefs will love the versatility of AAK's PrepTM Premium range. Whether used within the dish itself for cooking, marinating or drizzling, or as a condiment for diners to add to dishes of their choosing, our oils and accompaniments will certainly add flavour and zing to any Mediterranean inspired meal," said Rachel Neale, AAK Foodservice marketing manager.
"The range will also help chefs looking to create a special menu. Why not offer a Mediterranean inspired menu with a selection of starters, mains, sides and lighter 'snacky' options. Olive oil, balsamic vinegar and flavours such as basil, lemon and chilli go hand in hand in creating that authentic Med taste. AAK's PrepTM Premium range has it all."
Try serving olives, cheeses, prosciutto and flatbreads with a range of PrepTM Premium dipping oils and balsamic vinegar; drizzle balsamic glaze over a goat's cheese salad with lemon, thyme and chives; combine pasta, olives, tomatoes and mozzarella with the Basil infused oil for a delicious dish; or roast vegetables or potatoes in the Garlic infused oil and serve with fish or chicken. Alternatively, turn up the heat and use Chilli oil in a variety of dishes.
