Serving pre-prepared buffet and party food makes it easier for caterers at what is a very busy time of year for the sector. When time is at a premium, product consistency, which will help your customers’ experience of the event, can be much more easily maintained, and portion control and wastage more easily managed, which will help with your bottom line.

Opt for the exquisitely French, authentic canapés and appetisers, which are hand-finished and available in a range of selections. Or choose from the delicious sweet pâtisserie, which includes pop éclairs, classic French petits fours, chocolate French petits fours and French mini fruit tarts. Or why not create an eye-catching macaron pyramid to dazzle guests and add an interesting centrepiece to any buffet?

All of Tipiak’s products for foodservice are delivered frozen and in boxes which clearly state the thaw times…meaning it’s easy to simply thaw and serve to create a super spread at any New Year’s Eve celebration.

Christmas catering made easy by Tipiak

When it comes to the busiest time of year in foodservice, Tipiak can really deliver for foodservice professionals.

Buying in high quality, pre-prepared frozen items like canapés or petits fours will leave more time for chefs to devote to preparing other parts of the Christmas meal or menu.

And it saves so much time too, as making pâtisserie from scratch can be time-consuming, especially in large volumes, and consistency can be tricky to maintain.

Tipiak savoury canapés, pâtisserie and petits fours are exquisitely French, and are specifically designed for the foodservice professional. For maximum convenience, simply open the box, remove the protective film and slide the products from their tray straight on to the serving platter – it’s that quick and easy!

The sweet and savoury canapés and appetisers are all hand-finished which creates an individual look for each item, and yet they simply need thawing and serving to create a perfect start and finish to any Christmas event, whether that’s a buffet, reception or a sit-down meal.

To create an impressive, eye-catching centrepiece at any festive gathering, why not consider a macaron pyramid? With their smooth crisp shell and soft creamy filling, macarons bring a dash of French style to any event and are bang on trend. All the Tipiak macarons are certified gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians, so will suit a range of dietary requirements too.

Demand soars in the UK for Tipiak authentic French macarons

The taste for Tipiak French macarons has soared in the UK, with sales increasing by more than 24% year on year.

Ahead of Macaron Day 2018 on 20th March, the pâtissier has reported that if all the Tipiak macarons sold in the UK in 2017 were laid end to end, they would measure 95 times the height of the Arc de Triomphe.

The increasing popularity of the macarons has been attributed to a range of reasons, including the unique taste and recipe used by the skilled Tipiak pâtissiers in France, the different varieties available, which feature classic macarons, contemporary pop macarons, and the chocolate macarons collection, and the current fashion for afternoon tea in the UK.

In addition, the Tipiak macarons are also gluten-free (with certification from the French Coeliac Association) and are suitable for vegetarians, which appeals to those with a range of dietary requirements.

The rise in social media use and the fashion for snapping eye-catching images has also led to an increasing awareness of the delicate French delight, helping to ensure that consumers just can’t get enough of the genuine macarons.

And with Macaron Day on 20th March fast approaching, demand is likely to continue to grow.

“The Tipiak macarons look and taste exquisite,” said Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, international development project manager at French food producer Tipiak, which supplies frozen, authentic French patisserie to the UK foodservice sector.

“Demand has shot up over the past two years for authentic macarons and we are thrilled to see how popular the Tipiak macarons are in the UK foodservice sector. Because Tipiak macarons have a significantly higher almond content than most other macarons in the marketplace, they have a better flavour, are less brittle/fragile and are also less sweet. This is bang on trend for those consumers who are willing to pay a little bit more for a smaller, better quality, tastier and more enjoyable treat.

“All foodservice operators have to do is simply ‘thaw and serve’.”

Tipiak has a dedicated and passionate team of experienced pâtissiers using their expertise to create and hand-finish the superb range of ‘thaw and serve’ gluten-free macarons in different flavours and finishes.

They are available to restaurants, cafés, bars, pubs, event caterers, hotels, universities, leisure centres, care home operators, garden centres and other foodservice operators through frozen food wholesalers throughout the UK.

The Macaron Day tradition was established in 2005 in Paris as a partnership among local macaron patisseries to celebrate the French macaron and give back to local charities. In 2010, French macaron shops in New York City also began organising similar events, with other cities in the United States following suit, along with additional places around the world – holding events around the same time in March.

Tipiak tastes success at The Caterer Product Excellence Awards 2017

We were thrilled when our exquisitely French Pop Eclairs were selected as joint winner of the dessert category at the prestigious Caterer Product Excellence Awards 2017, held on 5 December at The In & Out Naval and Military Club in London.

The judges said: “The French Pop Eclairs from Tipiak are fun and have real visual appeal.  They come in a variety of flavours including crème brûlée, chocolate-orange, lemon and fruity raspberry-blackcurrant, all of which are delicate and complement each other.  With their twist on classic pâttiserie, these éclairs would be a perfect talking point for any party.”

A modern twist on the choux classic, our Pop Eclairs are the perfect pâtisserie solution for the busy chef and foodservice operator.  Simply thaw and serve to provide a gorgeous afternoon tea indulgence, a sweet treat after dinner, or a mouth-watering addition to morning coffee.

Hand-created in France, by skilled pâttisiers, the Pop Eclairs come in the perfect mini-size (average 15g each) that’s ideal for today’s latest trend for miniaturisation.
