So…it is that time of year when restaurants in the islands start working on their new menus for season, so they are ready to launch on or about October 15th. Trends indicate that consumers want “different” items on menus; they want items that have unique flavor profiles and visual appeal. And, they are willing to pay for it! Do you have a product in mind? We would encourage you to consider a lamb product from Pilot Brands. Pilot Brands offers both New Zealand and Australian Lamb and Merchants offers numerous products in stock and others that can be special ordered. Why lamb products from Pilot? Carefully selected free-range Pilot Brand Lamb is trimmed with an unmatched attention to detail and aged for guaranteed tenderness. The product is then quick-frozen to seal in its natural succulence. Pilot Brand lamb has a delicate, mild flavor that exemplifies the best qualities of grass-fed lamb.
Lamb Racks are delicious and beautiful in presentation but think beyond the traditional and consider Ground Lamb (Greek Lamb Burger?), Lamb Loin Chops, Boneless Lamb Shoulder or Lamb Leg. Let your chef’s creativity explode when you tell them “lamb is on the menu this year!”
Your Merchants Sales Associate can provide you with product pricing, menuing ideas, product specs, entrée pricing, etc. Contact them to discuss lamb on your menu for next season.
