With the weather now warming up and social gatherings back on the menu, it’s time to start thinking about summer parties! The last few years has made hosting parties quite difficult – especially when it comes to the catering side of things with open buffets very much off the agenda. However, now, parties are back in full swing and summer is on the horizon. So, we think it’s the perfect time to start talking about party food – and party patties could be the hottest addition to the menu this year. If you’ve not heard of cocktail patties, keep reading this blog to find out more!
Island Delight Patties
Island Delight patties were born from a love and yearning of Caribbean flavours. When founder Wade Lyn moved from Jamaica to the UK, he quickly missed the bold and mouth watering flavours of Caribbean cuisine. Patties are a staple street food in both Jamaica and the Caribbean. Wade soon realised there was a gap in the UK food market for these tasty pastry treats. Now Island Delight account for over 50% of the patties market in the UK. In addition, they are proud to have its patties stocked in leading supermarkets up and down the country.
What Are Jamaican Patties Made Of?
Generally speaking, traditional Jamaican patties are made from a shortcrust pastry which has been filled with seasoned meat, vegetables, and sometimes cheese. At Island Delight we’ve carefully crafted our pattie flavours so that you can taste the full authentic spice blends of the Caribbean. Our shortcrust varieties include:
- Jerk Beef
- Jerk Chicken
- Salt Fish
What Goes With Jamaican Patties?
Although they are a traditional street food snack, they are often served as meals with a variety of sides such as:
- Corn on the cob
- Ackee and Saltfish
Despite us predominantly focusing on UK supermarkets and wholesale for our Jamaican patties, we loved creating cocktail patties for all of the event’s foodies to sample. Proud attendees of the BBC Good Food Show last November, the warm and fresh party patties went down a treat. The feedback was fantastic and although we don’t officially supply cocktail patties to supermarkets just yet, we do cater for those hosting special events. We see cocktail patties as the perfect Caribbean addition to any party platter.
Island Delight proudly produces cocktail patties which are available for purchase on site which make perfect appetisers for parties or corporate events. Sold by the case of 48, they can be picked up by customers visiting us directly.
