Tipiak macarons the perfect ingredient for a Café Gourmand

As the weather turns colder, one way to entice shoppers into your café is by serving a hot drink with a mini sweet treat.

Tipiak macarons are the perfect ingredient for a Café Gourmand – a stylish way to serve a hot beverage.

A coffee usually served with a selection of three petits fours, Café Gourmand offers a chic alternative to a coffee and a piece of cake.

Choose Tipiak’s gluten-free macarons as one of the sweet treats. We have a range of flavours to suit all tastes.

Our French macarons selection features lemon, caramel, vanilla, raspberry, chocolate, and pistachio flavours. Meanwhile, we have blackcurrant, lemon and yuzu, apricot, cherry, passionfruit and mango, and coconut in the Tipiak French pop macarons fruits range.

Macarons are the darlings of the pâtisserie world. With their attractive pastel colours and crisp shells, they are super popular. And, of course, they are pretty as a picture…which means they are perfect for those all-important social media posts!

Gluten free

Tipiak’s authentic French macarons are certified gluten-free by the French Association of Gluten Intolerance (AFDIAG). Available frozen to the UK food service sector via key wholesalers, they simply need thawing before serving.

Team Tipiak’s macarons with a couple of additional sweet treats such as a mini crème brûlée and a chocolate brownie. Or why not take a look at Tipiak’s petits fours range for inspiration here?  We also offer award-winning pop éclairs, French chocolate petits fours and French classic petits fours to the UK foodservice sector. All are available frozen for maximum convenience to caterers.

Café Gourmand – which translates to gourmet coffee – is served all over France. Why not introduce it to your café or venue in the UK to create a little French chic? It’s sure to enhance your beverage menu and wow your customers.

Tipiak macarons launch in Booker frozen aisles

Pâtisserie specialist Tipiak has launched its gluten-free French macarons selection into wholesale giant Booker.

The authentic ‘thaw and serve’ macarons are now available frozen nationwide to food service operators and retailers via more than 170 sites operated by Booker.

It is the first time that Tipiak-branded macarons have been available direct to retailers and businesses in the UK.

Certified gluten free by the French Association of Gluten Intolerance (AFDIAG), each case of the French macarons features 36 individual pieces in six different flavours – lemon, caramel, vanilla, raspberry, chocolate and pistachio.

Thaw in a fridge for one hour plus 15 minutes at room temperature before serving.

Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, international development project manager at Tipiak, said: “We are delighted that our authentic, thaw and serve French macarons are now available to customers via Booker. Our sweet and savoury pâtisserie products have been available to the UK food service sector for many years but in partnering with Booker, we are making our Tipiak-branded French macarons available to the UK retail and business market for the first time.”

Made in France – the home of the macaron – the French macarons are packaged in eye-catching colourful window boxes and are ideal for both retail and food service.

In food service, they can be served as accompaniments to tea or coffee, as part of an afternoon tea or café gourmand, or as decorations and toppings for desserts, ice cream and shakes. A macaron tower makes a show-stopping centrepiece for any buffet, wedding, or event.

Based in France, Tipiak is a well-established business operating in the food sector since 1962, offering pâtisserie, party food, crusty bread, dry grocery products and frozen ready meals.
