Potatoes au gratin – not very exciting at first glance. But anyone who has ever eaten really good potatoes au gratin knows that the quality of the ingredients and craftsmanship determine whether the side dish becomes a star on the plate. Preparing potatoes au gratin is not complicated, but it is time-consuming, starting with peeling potatoes. If the kitchen is short of staff, it impacts even the more routine classics like creamy potato slices. Since September 2019, METRO Chef Gourvenience has been available as an exclusive order assortment for HoReCa (hotel, restaurant, catering) customers so that restaurateurs can maintain high quality standards even when they experience staff shortages.
Christian Krüger, former Michelin-decorated chef and head of the HoReCa Target Group Management at METRO Deutschland, is one of the developers of Gourvenience. He sums up the benefits of the solution, which also includes corresponding non-food articles for optimum processing of the products: ‘We constantly hear that restaurateurs need reliable support, especially in the food sector. Together with professional chefs, several colleagues and specialised manufacturers, we have thus developed our new Gourvenience product range.’
Convenience and uniqueness in the gastro kitchen can easily coexist with Gourvenience. All products of the solution are made from the best ingredients in hand-picked manufacturing facilities, which all share the same goal as METRO: to maintain taste diversity and quality even in times of staff shortages and help restaurateurs serve only the best dishes, allowing them to spend more time with their guests.
