Our top 5 simple serve Christmas showstoppers

Our top 5 simple serve Christmas showstoppers
As we approach the festive period, providing a touch of luxury and elevated products is a must-do to ensure you are bringing in as many customers as possible over (what to many) is the busiest time of the year. Whether it’s showcasing your festive set menu and working on getting bookings in or wanting to be the café of choice over the Christmas period, showcasing something that is a little extra special on your menu can really encourage people to spend more on their food.

From our Christmas 2022 range, I’ve pulled out 5 of our show-stopping products that are bound to get customers’ attention, but are also super simple to serve, making your life a little easier.


1. Salmon gravadlax



Salmon is an extremely popular option on starter menus for customers and the added bonus is it’s a product that is really easy to elegantly serve up on a plate without any cooking time and minimal prep. Our new salmon gravadlax elevates a simple salmon dish with the addition of the dill curing, providing delicious flavour and an added visual interest to the dish. Simply serve with a slice of lemon, some crème fraiche and a sprig of dill. Perfection.


2. Billington Foods smokey bean, butternut squash & pulled jackfruit wellington



Wellingtons always look amazing on a plate, but often are reserved for meat eaters only. Our vegan smokey bean and pulled jackfruit wellington is a perfect vegan option on your menus. Simply cook in the oven from defrost at 170˚C for 12-15 minutes (20-25 minutes from frozen) and serve with your accompaniments of choice.


3. Premium Selection salted caramel & gingerbread puddle cake



This cake is an absolutely amazing festive treat, perfect for dessert menus, cafes and coffee shops! It delivers on both flavour and texture and really will get the attention of your customers. The combination of salted caramel drizzle, caramel cheesecake and pieces of gingerbread cake, all on a biscuit base is just delicious. What’s more, we’re donating £1 per cake sold to FareShare via Work for Good, making it all the more sweet.


4. Cobbs festive raspberry millionaires Slice



Taking inspiration from the hugely popular millionaires flavour combo, this new festive raspberry millionaires slice is a perfect sweet treat for any café or coffee shop. The bright red raspberry caramel layer will no doubt stand out on your display and it is topped with a layer of delicious white chocolate and freeze dried raspberry pieces. Cobbs is a recognised brand famed for making delicious sweet treats in Inverness, Scotland, so we know this cake is delicious!


5. Yarde Farm dark chocolate & amarena cherry ice cream



Not your typical festive flavours but taking inspiration from the well-loved black forest flavour combination, this delicious ice cream from Yarde Farm is ideal as a simple serve dessert option. What’s not to love with a combination of slightly bitter dark chocolate and sweet Italian Amarena cherries, balancing each other out perfectly in this ice cream?
