Rational has launched two new dedicated webinars, Food to Go and Fresh to Go Live online.
Food to Go Live online is targeted at convenience stores, in-store bakery, counter service and forecourts, with the event focusing on pre-prepared foods such as bread, pastries, porridge pots and wraps, showing how a variety of snacks and meals can be prepared in Rational’s iCombi Pro combi steamer.
The Fresh to Go event looks at how operators such as butchers, delis and supermarkets can cook fresh food to go, such as roast joints, bread and bespoke ready meals, using both the iCombi Pro and the iVario Pro cooking systems.
During the online events a Rational chef demonstrates how the manufacturer’s cooking systems can be used to either introduce a food to go service, or to expand an existing offer with snacks and meals throughout the day. They’ll cover breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with bread and all-day sweet and savoury snacks, and look at food delivery options. While the Rational chef cooks, an expert host is on hand to answer questions via the chat function.
Rational corporate chef Ross Crook said: “Food to go has been a growing trend for many years, but the pandemic has driven it even harder, especially in terms of food delivery.
“These latest webinars show how the Rational cooking systems can prepare everything an operator needs for a complete food to go menu.”
A key consideration in many food to go outlets is that staff may not be trained cooks. The Live online shows how to prepare food in the Rational cooking systems by following the touchscreen instructions. Staff should not have to monitor the food, the appliances tell them when it’s cooked or when they need to take action.
During peak periods operators may be dealing with many different orders at once. The webinar covers the ability of the Rational cooking systems to cook different foods simultaneously, and how it should speed up production, save time and reduce energy consumption.
During the webinars the Food to Go team at Rational will demonstrate how to introduce a food to go offer in store using Rational cooking systems, how they can enhance the existing customer offer, and how they can increase revenues.
The Live online events are free to attend.
