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. Simply thaw and serve just what is required to reduce wastage and improve efficiency.”

Sweet and savoury frozen pâtisserie from Tipiak

Tipiak’s new vegan cocktail selection offers a superb savoury option for any afternoon tea – tasty bites exploding with flavour and colour that will bring a little French flair to the table.

To cater for dietary requirements, Tipiak’s exquisitely French macarons are gluten free. They are available in a range of flavours and pretty pastel colours. Choose from the original, authentic French macarons or the stunning pop macarons fruits topped with delicate stripes of fruity icing.

Chocolate is a favourite that’s always in fashion – so be sure to include chocolate sweet treats in any afternoon tea spread. The new Tipiak Chocolate French Petits Fours selection features a delightful assortment. It 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 to provide food service professionals with authentic, eye-catching French pâtisserie that just needs thawing before serving.

And for a modern twist on the classic éclair, how about Tipiak’s award-winning and excitingly decorated mini pop éclairs? They are available in four tempting flavours, crème brûlée, chocolate and orange, lemon, and raspberry and blackcurrant.

“It’s not easy to make pâtisserie from scratch. It’s labour intensive for a start and highly specialised. Having pre-prepared frozen pâtisserie to hand means that you can serve your care home residents and visitors with appetising, authentic and delightful French pâtisserie in a more cost-effective and time-effective manner,” adds Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé.
