The annual spook-fest is here, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake from fake blood to scream masks and from pumpkins to squashes.
Did we say squashes?
Yes, and not the squashed-skull-mask variety. The lovely warming orange root vegetable that forms a small part of nature’s delectable Autumn menu. It’s one of our favourite ingredients at Quattro Foods and we love giving the sublime squash and its relatives centrestage at this time of year.
At Quattro Foods we love to make full use of the beautiful fruit and veg of the season and as flavour is always a priority, our chefs invest thought and time into preparing food products that truly harness the vibrancy of the season. We have been beavering away in our development kitchens to create a Halloween feast filled with products that reflect the best of the season of mists and mellow spookiness, including lovely leeks, crisp green apples, beetroot, broccoli, aubergines, tangy blackberries, crunchy celeriac, juicy figs, earthy mushrooms and hearty butternut squash.
As one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers we create, manufacture and deliver bespoke food products to save professional development chefs time in their busy kitchens. We make everything to order and so, as Halloween approaches, we have concocted a range of delicious Autumn treats, including:

The Quattro team understands that Halloween is a highlight for kids across the globe. What was once the domain of creative parents and party planners across the Atlantic, the penchant for fabulous, fantastical costumes, decorations and street parties has infiltrated British culture in recent times and we have learned much from our American peers – All Hallows Eve is now truly the party of the year.
There’s nothing like a toasty bowl of soup or pasta to warm their little tummies when trick or treating comes to an end, the face paint is washed off and the sugar-high comes crashing down. When the little devils start craving some night-time nutrition and pre-bedtime warmth we recommend wholesome, tasty Autumn fare, and the Quattro kitchen offers pots and jars of mellow loveliness to induce calm and prepare the giggling ghouls for bedtime.
Quattro Foods is our name and bespoke food development is our game. Focussing on new product development, our development chefs have combined this season’s collection of organic seasonal produce to create mouth-watering, colourful and vibrant products to make your Halloween a splendid and spectacular culinary event.
And now for the really scary part. Try to prize some of those sticky sweeties out of your little monsters’ hands and replace them with a steaming bowl of pumpkin soup – go on, we dare you!
