Premium wines are closely associated with both the holidays and great crusty breads or warm rolls for early table service or with the meal. You can take that experience to the next level by serving those breads or rolls with either a shaped butter or a compound butter that adds flavor and flair. Butterball Farms has solutions for both.
Butterball Farms pioneered pre-portioned dollop technology that combines herb, citrus, or savory flavors in premium butter dollops that can be frozen and stored.
The dollops come frozen and are thawed then used for a flavor infusion atop proteins and vegetables, saving prep time in the kitchen and speeding service to tables. Alternate uses can include serving them as part of an upscale charcuterie or butter board, or as part of your bread service.
Shaped butters are another Butterball Farms specialty. Formerly reserved for fine dining or steak houses, Butterball Farms is bringing shaped butters to mainstream casual restaurants as an easy way for restaurants to create memorable dine-in moments during the holidays.
Developing a plan to increase profits from holiday customers involves addressing the bread and butter pairing challenge. One effective approach is for the wait staff to recommend a special wine and a flavored butter alongside the bread service as part of the welcoming process. This not only impresses your customers but also initiates the process of generating more profit throughout the afternoon or evening, leading up to the eventual bill at the end of their visit.
Butterball Farms consulted with wine and bread experts to craft a Bread, Butter & Wine Pairings Guide that you might find useful in building your own strategy for your operation during the holidays and beyond.
