Life has changed significantly in these last few months. We have seen communities coming together showing love for each other, and we hear the words ‘Thank You’ a lot more these days. All sports are still under the lock down, no baseball, no Indianapolis 500 during the Memorial Day weekend, no sporting events all over the world. This year is different with streets still empty due to shelter in place restrictions, slowly but surely we are starting to see things begin to open up with new guidance from our local governments but along with that comes new ways to work with lower capacities, and wearing a face mask is the new normal. On the bright side, the start of summer, warm weather, a little rain, and grilling season is here.
Food establishments are slowly starting to open with limited occupancy, social distancing and a lot of carry out, businesses must quickly adapt to the new ways. Welcome to the new ways of dining out. People are optimistic about things going back to a altered normalacy. It is time to celebrate making it through these tough times and moving on to the next phase, for we have been locked up for the last few months. For cocktails, mocktails and drink kits Fortune has a full selection of Perfect Purees available with flavors like Coconut, Mango, Passion Fruit, Morello Cherry, Papaya just to name a few. To top of the beverages, we have the perfect Luxardo Maraschino Cherries & the Fabbri Amarena Cherries available.
With things changing both in the front and back of the house, this is a good time to look at some of the great finished frozen items that Fortune offers. Let's look at the products from ‘Taste It.’ We have their delicious Tiramisu along with a Crunchy Almond Cake and a delicious Limoncello Cake. All three come in trays, just cut in any size portion and serve.
