Chef Matt @ Taste of Chicago
With more than 1.4 million hungry patrons served, the 35th annual Taste of Chicago served up a smorgasbord of dishes from around the world. Keeping things running smoothly at 60 food vendors with more than 200 unique dishes can be challenging. Carlisle FoodService Products’ Chef Matt Burton was on hand to observe, offer up advice on running a more efficient kitchen and of course eat!

Indulgent Fried Foods Start With Professional Breading & Battering Prep

Indulging in perfectly battered and seasoned fried foods can be an instant mood booster and transform a typical dining experience into a memorable one. Conversely, poorly prepared fried foods can leave a lasting impression of mediocrity.

Your customers will enjoy tastier versions of their favorite fried food indulgences such as chicken tenders, chicken wings, coconut shrimp, onion rings and fried chicken.

Caterers, It’s Time to Work Smarter, Not Harder.

Caterers have a life that rests firmly on the border between calm and smack in the middle of chaos. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In 2013 the catering profession employed roughly 150,000 people; every one of those caterers must be well organized and prepared if they are to succeed in a competitive market.Cateraide™ Sheet Pan, Tray Carrier

Catering is completely different from cooking in a restaurant. In a restaurant, you can give full attention to each dish and craft it perfectly; not that you can’t do that in a catering setting, but it’s quite different. Caterers have a limited amount of time to get food out to not just one table, but possibly hundreds simultaneously.

The life of a good caterer can actually be one of control and ease if things are organized.

You may have noticed #CarlisleSpotted popping up in your Twitter or Facebook feed occasionally. Have you ever wondered what it’s all about?

It’s simple.

By using #CarlisleSpotted, you can connect directly with Carlisle. Tweet at us or tag us in your Facebook photo that pictures a Carlisle product you spotted at a catering event, restaurant, hospital or anywhere else you may have seen a Carlisle product. We love to see our products in action and hear from you, the people who use our products everyday. CarlisleSpotted_txt

We’ve gotten a photo of a Cateraide Beverage Server at a farmers market in Springfield, MO as well as a photo of one of our trays all the way from Madrid, Spain! There are Carlisle products all over the world…and we want to see them!

The #CarlisleSpotted tag is our favorite tag to watch. There’s nothing better than seeing our products in action, spotted by the wonderful people who are “flipping” products all over the world! (flipping is the act of turning over dishes to see if it’s a Carlisle)

So, next time you see a Carlisle product, snap a photo, post it on Twitter or Facebook, and make sure to include the tag #CarlisleSpotted.

Where will you find Carlisle?
