Most of us heave a sigh of relief once winter has passed. Now though we have the unpredictability of early spring, but with daylight saving time here, we can soon anticipate balmier evenings, socialisin in the backyard with friends and family – and of course, barbeques.
The quintessential ingredient of any Kiwi barbeque is the sausage. Sausages however are not all created equal. At Hellers they are well aware that astute and sophisticated consumers look for excellence and innovation when it comes to butchery items to serve up on the barbie for summer. The plain, the bland and the conventional are simply not good enough, so this year Hellers has delivered once again.
Right now in a supermarket near you are two new sausage flavour sensations set to put a real zing into your barbeque – a pork and cider sausage, in which the timeless combo of pork and apple gets a bit fancy with a splash of cider, and a turkey and maple bacon sausage. Think Americana heaven of ground turkey meat with a hit of sweet-savoury maple-flavoured bacon.
Hellers has not been content introducing the summer vibe only with sausages. They are also ‘Kings of the Kebab’ with new flavours from Tandoori Chicken and Greek Lamb to Teriyaki Beef and Chorizo Pork all available from November. Add in the new Jumbo Bratwurst range – the larger and longer German sausage that will be a stand out on any barbeque – and who can doubt that Hellers and their products truly own the barbeque. Choice and variety for customers have never been better.
With summer fast approaching, it’s time to prep your platter game. What better way to tease and wow your audience by whipping up a stunning and tasty platter for Cup and Show Week!
Never stray too far from Hellers’ treats that never disappoint a hungry crowd. Even Brydon Heller is proud to add his wonderful selections when getting the mates together to watch a game.
How can you go wrong with snacks such as the Mild and Spicy Biersticks with their moreish flavour and a spicy kick? They’re ready to eat straight out of the pack and are great on their own for a snack on the go.
If you’re ready to add some exotic flavours to your creation, add some Hellers Spanish Chorizo. Made with finely chopped pork, venison and beef, lightly seasoned with the traditional spices of the Spanish culture, you are sure to win over your troop. Mix these tasty morsels up with salami and a wide range of shaved meats. Hellers’ Salami Chub range is the most convenient way to dice and slice tasty meats straight onto your plate or meal. Don’t forget to get fancy and complete your plate with feta, roasted capsicum, sundried tomatoes and your favourite cheese. Brilliant!
With options like these to satiate your summer food additions, your place will be the centre of attention for those wanting fantastic summer fare.
Nothing quite encapsulates winter the way hot soup does. Our friends at Hellers have developed a classic range of winter soups containing their renowned smallgoods. Four delicious flavours provide wonderful nourishment on a cold day and an amazing depth of flavour.
