The ‘Élégance and Chocolat’ collection replaces the company’s ‘Black and White range’, with a contemporary selection of styles and shapes, according to Matthew Grenter, foodservice sales manager.
“Our chocolate ranges have always been amongst our most popular petit fours. So, for all the chocolate fans, we decided to introduce a sophisticated new collection which brings together some exciting flavour combinations.
“Each individual bite is rich with chocolate combined with other popular ingredients like praline, hazelnuts and textures like choux and croustillant pastry. We think they are going to be crowd pleasers.”
As all catering outlets were currently struggling to keep trading under coronavirus restrictions, he said it was worth considering offering special treats that can be delivered locally to isolated customers.
“Housebound consumers are looking for ways to keep connected, and organising the delivery of a gift such as a beautiful little box of petit fours is a way to treat themselves or friends and family.
“In more normal times petit fours are an extremely useful products for event caterers, hotels, restaurants and casual dining outlets. The ultimate sweet canapé, they can be arranged to make a beautiful display on a tray, and are the perfect addition to afternoon tea.”
As with all Brioche Pasquier pâtisserie, the petit fours are made with fresh, non-caged eggs, fresh butter and natural colourants and flavourings. They are vegetarian and are free from artificial colours and flavours, palm oil and preservatives.
