With the summer party season in full swing in the United Kingdom, frozen food distributor Central Foods is shining the spotlight on its Mediterranean buffet skewers. Convenient for caterers who are looking for finger-food ideas, they are ideal as a starter, served as part of a sharing platter or tapas menu, or for receptions.
Thaw-and-serve mixed packs of mini wooden skewers are available in two flavor combinations – green olive and mozzarella balls, and dried herbed tomato and mozzarella balls – all coated with a green pesto dressing. Suitable for vegetarians, they are also a natural fit for Italian cuisine menus.
“The Menuserve Mediterranean buffet skewers bring style and color to any buffet or function,” said Gordon Lauder, managing director of Northamptonshire, England-based Central Foods. “As we move through the summer season, well known for parties, buffets, receptions, weddings, graduations and other gatherings, our skewers are ideal items to have on the menu.”
