Rational’s new Live online events demonstrate all-day menus for Food to Go and Fresh to Go

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 huge 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 Rational 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 gets busy cooking, an expert host is on hand to answer questions via the chat function.

Ross Crook, Rational corporate chef says:

“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 easy it is to prepare food in the Rational cooking systems, simply by following the touchscreen instructions. Since staff won’t have to monitor the food the appliances tell them when it’s cooked or when they need to take action – they can get on with other tasks such as serving customers.

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 lots of different foods simultaneously, speeding up production, saving time and reducing energy consumption. A key benefit here is that customers are happier as they don’t have to wait for long!

The Food to Go team at Rational is highly experienced. During the webinars they’ll demonstrate just how easy it is 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.
