Tip of the Week: Develop a late-night snack menu

Tip of the Week Sponsored By:


It’s summer. Nights are long and hot, and guests want to stay out late, especially on weekends. However, you don’t want to trouble your kitchen staff by requiring them to stay on until the wee hours of the morning, especially if there aren’t many people noshing at that time. A better idea is to develop a short menu of shareable snack items that are easy for one or two cooks to prepare that will satisfy even the most discerning customer.

Options to consider include dips, loaded fries and the old favourite standby, nachos. Beyond that, get creative! Try adding ethnic flavours to classic late-night bar snacks, such as dusting chicken wings with tandoori spice or topping a chicken sandwich with Piri Piri sauce. You have the cuisines of an entire world to experiment with, so make the most of it! Your guests will thank you.
