Creative easter meat ideas for your private dinner guests
Updating your easter meat menu with reputable suppliers
We are sure you are already thinking about what you are going to offer your dining guests on the upcoming Easter weekend. This is an incredibly important time of year for many people and a growing number of people are choosing to book a table and eat out as a family rather than trying to squeeze everyone into their dining room. For this reason, you need to start planning your easter meat menu now so you can get your tables booked up and offer your guests something extra special.
Finding a reputable supplier to purchase your easter meat from can be challenging. Easter only comes round once a year so it’s important you get this choice right. Luckily, IMS of Smithfield has given you a few pointers on how to choose the best meat supplier to work with in 2022:
Find out where your meat is coming from – your supplier should be able to provide you with a grassroots view of your meat, including the farm it was reared from and its provenance.
View the easter meat offerings that you can purchase – your menu should offer a complete variety of choices for your guests. Choose a wholesale butcher that can provide a range of meats for your menu.
Butchers accreditation – does your chosen supplier have the accreditation to back up their quality produce? Ask your supplier about their accreditation to see what they can supply you with.
What do other customers think? – Don’t just take the word of your butcher. Take a look at reviews, testimonials and online comments to ensure the quality of the product you are getting is second to none.
