Five-Star Appetizers for Your Restaurant

Image
It’s not uncommon for a chef to introduce new concepts as appetizers. This helps create a menu variety on a smaller scale, and not require the same ingredient quantity as full entrĂ©es. If your Missouri restaurant is wanting to make some new leaps in the appetizer world, there are some really fun trends happening that you may want to incorporate. It’s time to WOW your customers with a fantastic appetizer selection, and we have some delicious suggestions.


Street Tacos If a dish is inspired by the street foods served from the Far East, the Middle East, and the Caribbean, and Latin America - they take the cake (er … taco!). Street tacos make a perfect example of this, especially in appetizer form. Mini tacos can be filled with pork shoulder, grilled pineapple, and cilantro. Chicken Chorizo tacos are also a big hit, think of green chicken chorizo sausage paired with avocado salsa - it’s basically a fiesta in your mouth, and a fun way to play with these flavors in your facility.

Selecting and Storing Fresh Veggies

June 16th is Fresh Veggies Day, so it’s the perfect time to learn about selecting and storing your vegetables. As a restaurant owner, it’s important to make sure that your vegetables are properly cared for, but even more so, chosen. Because we care about your business, your restaurant, and obviously your equipment, here are a few hints to help.


Choose Produce Carefully When getting high quality produce, the key is to make sure that you come back with pieces that aren’t damaged or bad. No amount of storage will make a difference if the produce is too far gone.

Need to Stock Up? If you’re buying bulk, plan on grabbing the root vegetables. These are notorious for lasting long and staying fresh. Wanna keep it longer? Try separating the greens from carrots or beets to help keep them from pulling moisture.

Getting Greens? Lettuces are fragile, but kale and collards will last longer. Especially when you take the rubber band and plastic bag to give it room to breathe. Other options tha…
