Types of Food Accompaniment 

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are thrilled to have you in our class!!

In today’s Catering Craft’s class, we will be learning about Types Of Food Accompaniment

Types Of Food Accompaniment

Remember that every dish has its own accompaniment of food and a food item is incomplete without it. Think of food accompaniment as that combination you must add to your meal before eating. And as we have preferences in everything in life, we have preferences in food accompaniment otherwise referred to as types of food accompaniment. 

The two common food accompaniments that are served in restaurants include Garlic and Salad Dressing. You might want to visit the kitchen after this class!

Garlic Sauce

To have this delicious garlic sauce, follow this procedure:

  • Place the garlic heads in tinfoil, season with salt and cover in olive oil, wrap tightly.
  • Place in a preheated oven at 120°C and bake for 2 hours, until the heads are soft.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the bases off the heads of garlic, squeeze out the pulp into a jar, leaving behind the now crispy skin. Add the oil from the tinfoil to the jar and mix, this will keep as a seasoning in the oil in your fridge for weeks. 
  • To make the butter, add the garlic pulp into a bowl with the softened butter. Season with salt and grated parmesan.
  • Chop chives finely, and fold through the butter. Keep in the fridge or roll in clingfilm and freeze for later use.
  • When ready to use, emulsify in a pan with water to create a garlic butter sauce.

For the salad, we do this:

A benefit of making your own salad dressing is getting to use the finest and freshest of ingredients. Every homemade salad dressing should be made up with a few key staples: a base, an acid, and a thickening agent.

Oil: Oils are used as the base of a salad dressing and to add a smooth consistency and flavor. Good quality oils contain healthy essential fat that the body cannot make on its own. These fats actually help lower cholesterol, blood sugar levels, speed up the metabolism, and protect the body from free radicals by supporting the immune system.

How To Make Salad Dressing:

All you really need to do to make this salad dressing recipe is stir or shake all of the ingredients together until combined. You can either accomplish this…

  • In a bowl or measuring cup: Combine all of the ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • In a mason jar: Combine all ingredients, cover with a lid, and shake vigorously until combined.
  • In a blender: Combine all ingredients and pulse until combined. (This method is especially nice if you are making a larger batch, plus you do not need to press or mince the garlic cloves.)

Since there is no uniform way of making salad dressing, you can also add in any dried or fresh herbs you would like too; if you would like to give this dressing some subtle heat, feel free to add in a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes as well; If you would like a sweeter dressing, just add in a teaspoon or two of your desired sweetener.
