Make care home afternoon tea easy, with Tipiak

Afternoon tea is always a highlight of the day in any care home. It’s an occasion that residents look forward to. It’s the chance to socialise and chat. And an opportunity to enjoy time with friends and visitors. And, of course, it’s also important for boosting the calorie intake and hydration of care home residents.

Pre-prepared frozen products make it easy for care home caterers to lay on a super spread when it comes to afternoon tea.

Try dainty macarons, mini fruit tarts or pop éclairs to bring a splash of colour to any sweet selection. And tasty tidbits for the savoury side of things. Tipiak offers a range of authentic exquisitely French ‘thaw and serve’ pâtisserie. It’s perfect for care home catering.

Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, international development project manager at Tipiak, explains: “Frozen pre-prepared items are used in pretty much every professional kitchen now for convenience and to help reduce waste. Afternoon tea is an occasion that is always looked forward to in any care home. It’s a social event but also a key opportunity to offer extra calories and hydration.

“Choose mini or bite-sized ingredients for your care home afternoon tea to help tempt those with smaller appetites. Frozen pre-prepared products are the perfect partner for the care home catering professional looking to serve appetising afternoon teas. Make care home afternoon tea easy.

“Veganuary is more popular this year than it has ever been before.

Save on costs by choosing pre-prepared canapés, suggests pâtissier Tipiak

When hospitality is allowed to open up again and operators are able to cater for parties and events once more, Tipiak has the perfect time-saving, no-wastage solution.

Did you know that a comparison study looking at the cost of using frozen food versus freshly prepared foods concluded that it was more cost effective to buy ready-made frozen alternatives….especially when it came to canapés?

The British Frozen Food Federation instructed the Manchester Food Research Centre to conduct a ‘cost comparison’ study; investigating the overall cost of using frozen foods compared to ‘freshly prepared’ foods. It took into account the cost of ingredients, labour, energy and wastage, and focused on catering in a small pub or restaurant.

Canapés – one of Tipiak’s specialities – were one of the meals evaluated in the study, along with a breaded Camembert, a lamb shank, salmon en croute, profiteroles and strawberry cheesecake.

The study revealed that buying frozen canapés could represent a 66% cost saving.

It concluded on the whole that “it was more cost effective to buy ready made frozen alternatives than producing dishes from ‘scratch’, particularly the more labour intensive products such as canapés which involves a high skill level at a considerable cost.”

The report went on to say…. “The large time factor involved in the preparation, cooking and finishing times would be significantly reduced using the frozen alternative. Costs would also be saved in terms of wastage – as there would be no if very little preparation of ingredients when using a frozen alternative. In addition, staff costs could be kept to a minimum – as the skill levels of the staff required to run the kitchen would be minimal.”

Tipiak has been supplying exquisitely French canapés to the UK food service sector for many years – supporting food service professionals in restaurants, bars, hotels, universities, care homes, event venues and other outlets.

We offer a super selection of ‘thaw and serve’ canapés – all prepared and hand-finished in France. Made with the finest ingredients, our savoury canapés offer a wide range perfect for catering any event, from weddings to awards, cocktail parties to conferences…..we have a bite-sized delight to suit them all.

French pâtissier Tipiak launches Vegan Cocktail Selection for UK food service

French pâtissier Tipiak has unveiled a luxury Vegan Cocktail Selection for food service customers in the UK.

Launching exclusively in the UK in response to increasing consumer demand for plant-based products, the Vegan Cocktail Selection features an exquisite range of attractive bite-sized vegan-friendly pieces.

The unique finger food assortment includes almond cream and edamame bean on pea and mint muffins, carrot, lemon and ginger mousseline mini tarts, sesame hummus and courgette tagliatelle on courgette and pine nut shortbread, sun-dried cherry tomato and olive tapenade on curry polenta cubes, guacamole and almond on walnut crackers, piquillo and sweet pepper tomato tarts, and falafel bites topped with sesame seeds.

Produced and hand-finished in France, the Tipiak ‘thaw and serve’ Vegan Cocktail Selection is available frozen exclusively via distributor Central Foods and complements Tipiak’s existing range of savoury canapés already available in the UK.

It brings together a superb range of top-quality flavours to create a selection that is perfect for bars, clubs, hotels and other outlets to serve as accompaniments to drinks any time of day, during Happy Hour, with aperitifs or as hors d’oeuvres at functions and events, or even as canapés at weddings, banquets, graduations and other occasions when these resume.

Each morsel teams together a stunning array of tastes, textures and colours in a range that’s sure to go down well with all customers, not just those who are looking for plant-based options. Simply defrost before serving for maximum convenience.

“The new Tipiak Vegan Cocktail Selection is a world first for us, bringing something unique to the table,” said Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, international development project manager at Tipiak, which supplies frozen, authentic French sweet and savoury pâtisserie to the hospitality sector in the UK.

“The demand for vegan-friendly products in the food service sector and interest in plant-based items generally has grown enormously in the UK in recent times and we are delighted to be unveiling the Vegan Cocktail Selection to the UK food service sector. The selection has been especially developed by our chefs, bringing together the finest ingredients and flavours to create a truly exquisite explosion of plant-based colour and flavour that has to be eaten to be believed!”

The Tipiak Vegan Cocktail Selection is now available nationwide through frozen food wholesalers.

Tipiak has been supplying its authentic ‘thaw and serve’ canapés in the UK since 2009, building up an outstanding reputation amongst chefs for their stunning, hand-finished presentation and superb flavours.

The Vegan Cocktail Selection is packed on new gold-coloured cardboard trays, which are 100% recyclable. Composed of more than 50% cellulosic fibres, which come from plant cell walls and are biodegradable, the packaging is regarded as ‘paper-carton’ – meaning it is made of paper but not lined with plastic or aluminium, like traditional cartons.

Each Vegan Cocktail Selection box contains 36 individual pieces across seven different varieties. For maximum convenience, whilst still frozen, remove the canapés from their box and arrange on a platter, stand or serving tray. Leave for four hours in the refrigerator to defrost, plus 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.

Boost your takeaway drinks sales by adding a touch of French chic

Tipiak macarons are the perfect accompaniment to coffee, tea and other hot or cold beverages and are the ideal add-on to encourage consumers to trade up with their drinks order.

Macarons are bang on trend….with more than six million images posted on social media platform Instagram alone.

We have a range of superb flavours to suit all tastes….and what’s more, our macarons are vegetarian and gluten free too.

Choose from our new French pop macarons fruits selection which features six fruity flavours (blackcurrant, lemon and yuzu, apricot, cherry, passionfruit and mango, and coconut) or the French macarons collection, which includes the more traditional flavours of lemon, caramel, vanilla, raspberry, chocolate and pistachio.

Simply thaw and offer as an impulse line alongside your freshly brewed coffee or other drink so customers can treat themselves during these uncertain times and indulge in a mini, exquisitely French treat.

Or how about teaming a macaron with a mini French tart and a pop éclair to create a premium takeaway café gourmand – popular in France as a dessert or mid-morning treat. For another profit making idea, operators could even make them up in to small bags or boxes for customers to buy to indulge in or share later – the macarons can even be eaten straight from the freezer, for a deliciously, light, cooling treat during the warmer weather!

Tipiak’s macarons are certified as gluten free by the French Coeliac Association – a unique selling point in UK foodservice – and are made with more almonds and less sugar for a better flavour and less brittle texture.

So, if you’re looking to perk up your beverage menu, why not treat your customers to Tipiak’s exquisitely French macarons. They’re ideal accompaniments to coffee, tea and other hot or cold drinks, and at less than 50 kcals each, a luxury indulgence without the guilt that could also help your bottom line!
