The other big cost saver is CrumbMate. Bistros are big on crumbed dishes and CrumbMate saves Eddie a fortune on eggs, and actually delivers a better result.
Many of his signature dishes feature flavourings that have been developed with Vince’s team go on to become best sellers. They are also very profitable because they can be produced quickly and consistently, always knowing that Chef’s First Choice’s will deliver the perfect ingredients.
We did a lot of Roasts and the Chef’s First Choice Rich Brown Gravy was always a winner but it was the baked potato sprinkle that kept the customers coming back. It was paprika based but had a fine balance of about five ingredients that delivered a crunchy, crispy crust that was irresistible.
Says Eddie “For us it has always been a no brainer. Vince and his team at Chef’s First Choice’s listen to what we want, have the expertise to develop those unique flavours and deliver them consistently at a price that is way below other suppliers. What more could you ask for.”
