I am organizing some shelves at work and need to label things we put on them. We use these ceramic mini servers for both milk/cream and also for jus/gravy.
I could just label them creamers but I want to also indicate somehow that they’re used for jus and gravy. Do these mini jugs have a technical umbrella name?
I just know them as jugs.
Maybe they have a specific name where you are in the world. Have a look at websites which sell catering equipment and the like to see how they are named.
My label would say “milk/cream” and below that “jus/gravy”. I’d fear that anything less direct would go right over some people’s heads. Cute little things!
These things often feature on the various versions of TV show Masterchef in the UK - used for sauce. I’m not sure quite why - it’s not the sort of thing you’re ever presented with in a restaurant. I suppose it allows a camera shot of the plate, without sauce, while the food is breathily described always ending with a shot of the sauce being poured over the dish with the words “and a lamb sauce” (or whatever), in somewhat orgasmic tones.
By the by, I’ve looked at a couple of British catering industry wholesalers where they seem to be called “individual jugs” or simply “small sauce jugs”
We present and serve our tasting menu with these mini servers at our restaurant. We use them for both coffee creamers and for red wine jus and gravy.
Thanks. I’ve seen them on various websites called:
That’s why I’m not sure exactly what to label them. Was hoping there would be a proper name for them. But maybe not.
