The weekly culinary focal point for many is the Sunday roast, but it does occasionally stand accused of lacking innovation. However, in this three-part video series we change that with an in-depth look at how to make the roast dinner shine.

In partnership with Knorr Professional, The Morning Advertiser ​has produced three videos looking at how operators can make their roast dinners work harder for them.

Our first episode above delves into how we can make the basics of the dish better, from the meat to vegetables and, of course, the gravy.

Roast more exciting

We speak to expert producers to find out how we can make the roast more exciting while also maintaining margins.

Then we head into the kitchen to find out how three high profile chefs can make side dishes a little more exciting, beginning with broccoli with a chicken skin crumb and ending with a new take on a classic.

Finally, in episode one, we  plate up our Sunday roast with sides, Yorkshire pudding and a very special gravy.

In episode two we look at what a basic roast should look like, before moving on to a family-style version and finishing with a premium roast.

Humble dish like the roast

That’s all before we take a look at how to ensure a dish looks its best before it goes out to a customer. As we all know, it can be tough to make a humble dish like the roast look good, but our top tips show that it can easily be done.

In our third episode we’re talking about the future of the roast, from veggie and vegan versions to roast inspired by Asian cuisine.

Watch the first episode of the Great Roast Revival above to see how we can make this iconic dish shine even brighter.

Episodes two and three will follow in the weeks ahead.
