The Chinese Year of the Snake starts on 10 February and caterers are being invited to think more creatively about it in advance with an inspired give-away from Uncle Ben's.
With the help of a theme kit, the challenge is on for caterers across food service to throw a Chinese New Year celebration to remember and send in photos and videos of the occasion, the best of which will be featured on Uncle Ben's new website.
One overall winner will receive a Bourgeat Tradition Plus Wok and a set of four Churchill Art de Cuisine theatre bowls and lids inspired by the shape of the wok, a prize worth £200.
Making life easier for caterers this Chinese New Year, Uncle Ben's versatile, ready-to-use Oriental sauces comprise Black Bean, Sweet and Sour (no veg), Sweet and Sour (with veg), Sweet Thai Chilli, Szechuan and Chinese Stir Fry.
Each 2.2-2.54kg jar has a yield of 25-30 portions as a culinary sauce, 50-plus portions as a dip and 75-100 portions as a filling.
To request a challenge theme kit call 0800 952 0011. Then send your photos or videos with your name and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 28 February, quoting "Wok a Theme Day!" in the subject bar.
