Guests spend months looking ahead to what their club’s chef and event planners have up their sleeves for their holiday menus and special events. Now isn’t too late to think beyond your typical menu planning for some inspirations to make your events more memorable than ever before.
Ask many guests what they remember about holiday occasions, and you may hear about seemingly little things that they hadn’t seen before. An easy upscale could be serving beautifully shaped butters with your table bread service or at bread stations. Butterball® Farms shaped butters are an easy way for letting guests know you thought of everything this holiday season. Available at your local distributor, Butterball® Butter Premium Balls®, Rose & Rosettes, or Butter Medallions add a touch of elegance on the tabletop elevating the dining experience for your guests.
Rolls, breakfast breads and pastries can likewise be more memorable with Pop Out® Honey with Cinnamon Sugar Butter Hives or one of the shaped butters available. Or think service stations at Sunday or holiday brunches. Simply place Butter Balls or Honey Butter Hives at your service stations for your staff to drop into eggs or potatoes or offer them with pancakes or waffles.
Club Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners are milestones of a successful year, so celebrate the occasion with a shaped butter atop vegetables, such as green beans or carrots for an extra flare.
For private parties, company events or small groups, remember charcuterie rose 12%* on restaurant menus in the past year. It is ideal as conversation starters over wine or beer. Here too shaped butters can highlight your attention to detail for shared flavors using bread or crackers as the carrier with honey or jams.
Overall, menus mentioning “butter” grew on restaurant menus this year by 5%*. It’s a testament to the return to good times shared with friends, family, or co-workers during the holidays. See what a little bit of butter can do to make your holiday menus and events memorable. You can request your free sample of shaped butters from Butterball Farms and get ready for a great end to your year.
