Make Sure You Keep Your Food “At Temperature”

Last weekend my wife and I went to the first outdoor function of the year. As we were going through the buffet line we noticed that the cole slaw was not as cold as it should be and the baked chicken was not as hot as it should be. I looked at what they were using to keep product hot or cold and noticed they were just sitting on the table. Since my wife and I are good friends with the organizers I suggested they invest in a Cambro CamCarrier. This unit will hold full size steam table pans or clear food pans hot or cold. They are very well insulated. The next item I said they could use is the insulated delivery bags from Intedge. These are an inexpensive way to hold food hot or cold food as well.
When we went to the buffet line the food was in aluminum foil pans. I suggested using the Chafers Burkett Restaurant Equipment has on sale. Also check out the new innovative shapes of steam table pans from Vollrath. For those that want to go all out just check out the portable bars now available. For any other catering needs or ideas please drop us an email, maybe we can incorporate it into future blogs.
