Tipiak unveils new French Chocolate Petits Fours for foodservice

French pâtissier Tipiak has launched a new range of exquisitely French Chocolate Petits Fours for the food service sector in the UK.

The ‘thaw and serve’ selection of delicate treats includes chocolate and feuilletine squares, chocolate and hazelnut tartlets, chocolate, mascarpone and coffee squares, caramel and chocolate tartlets, milk chocolate, Tonka flavoured financier, milk chocolate and coconut shortbreads, hazelnut and chocolate fingers, and chocolate and raspberry cakes.

The range offers a superb selection of flavours, shapes and toppings – designed to provide food service professionals with authentic, eye-catching pâtisserie that simply needs thawing before serving.

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, said: “Chocolate is a flavour that’s always in fashion. The new Tipiak French Chocolate Petits Fours selection brings together a mouth-watering range of some of our most popular chocolate petits fours.

“The beauty of petits fours is that they can be served in a variety of ways – as part of an afternoon tea, with a coffee as a café gourmand, to round off a meal, or as part of a trio or selection of mini desserts, which is a popular way of offering customers and diners a lighter choice of dessert and appeals to those with smaller appetites or those who are looking to indulge without guilt.

“Our aim at Tipiak is to be the perfect partner to chefs and food service professionals, and we’re delighted to be launching our new selection of French Chocolate Petits Fours in the UK at a time when the hospitality sector is looking to open up. Once restrictions are lifted, we predict that people will be keen to treat themselves, and chocolate is the ultimate sweet treat – pretty much an essential item on any dessert menu.”

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.
