Artisanal Provisions: Holiday Top 5

Share this Post

The holidays have a way of igniting our creativity. Whether you’re seeking that extra flare of flavor or looking to reconstruct the presentation of a classic dish,  Artisanal Provisions specialists like Roland Ulrich, Shamrock Foods Arizona, know which products will add a little holiday magic to your restaurant. Applying knowledge from decades of expertise in the foodservice industry, Ulrich shares his “Holiday Top 5” Artisanal Provisions products:

  • Barry Callebaut Semi-Sweet Chocolate

    Semi-Sweet Chocolate is ideal for decadent desserts. Containing cocoa and butter, it melts perfectly for brownies, chocolate custard and ganache. It’s equally delicious in chip form for cookies or adding to pies.

  • White Toque Macaron Fondant Cookies

    In an assortment of colors, White Toque Macaron’s are an ideal addition to petit four displays and served with a holiday high tea or as a coffee companion. Insider secret: they also make beautiful gifts.

  • Foodmatch, Inc. Green Pitted Marinated Olives

    Foodmatch’s great tasting green pitted olives are marinated with tangerine and a hint of chilies. They are extremely diverse pairing well with everything from cheese and charcuterie to seafood dishes like scallops and salmon, or even shredded pork and pasta dishes.

  • Atalanta Manchego Cheese

    Atalanta Manchego is as great on a cheese and charcuterie platter as it is shredded for Mexican or pasta dishes. Made from young sheep’s milk, Manchego is aged four months to perfection, is not overly dry and melts very nicely – making slices a perfect burger topper.

  • Creminelli Barolo Wine Salami

    This flavorful salami is made from pork marinated in rich-tasting Barolo wine before curing. While always great for cured meat platters, its equally crowd pleasing in a chopped salad or artisanal sandwich.

To earn their Artisanal Provisions title, all of these products are made in small batches to reflect high-quality craftmanship and care. Each has been expertly sourced and is readily available to support your creativity this holiday season.
