Premier Foods carvery guide
Welcome to the highlights from our Carvery Guide; a tool to help pubs, restaurants and hotels make the most of this popular dining option. Some of our best loved brands, including Bisto, Paxo and McDougalls, are perfectly placed to help outlets serve delicious accompaniments to a carvery roast, and our Executive Chef, Mark Rigby, has put together recipes and top tips to help inspire you.
The recipes have been developed based on the results of exclusive consumer research we conducted to find out what people are looking for from a carvery meal, helping you to tempt your diners. There is even inspiration to help you cater for vegetarians, making sure there is something for everyone.
