Rich's Versatile Product Can Help Caterers Extend Hold Times for Tasty Treats

On this episode of Foodable’s Smart Kitchen and Bar, our guest host Chef Dave Mack, Director of Culinary Operations & Development at Tastebuds Catering, will discuss the role of desserts in catering and the challenges caterers have when it comes to hold times and upkeeping visual appeal. He will be creating two sweet treats using Rich’s On Top® Whipped Topping.

“So what’s great about this product is that it takes on flavor so well,” says Chef Mack. “...But the best part about [it] is you can be able to pipe something ahead of time and it will still hold for when you need them.”

The two desserts he covers in this episode are a Tropical Trifle with fresh fruits and a Boston Creme Puff with a chocolate ganache.
