The latest range, hard fonçage, is Pidy’s own short, crisp and thin pastry which comes in two flavours – sweet and neutral.
The new range marks the brand’s bid to provide regular shapes which have a lighter appeal and provide a higher filling to pastry ratio.
The neutral range is ideally suited to festive fillings such as roast turkey and cranberry sauce or sage and onion stuffing while the sweet range works well with dessert fillings such as chocolate fondant or mincemeat topped with meringue.
Other filling suggestions include hot crème brulee, mini cheesecakes, crème anglaise and fruity lemon tarts.
“Research over the last few years has led us to believe that our customers are seeking new ways in which to present their pastry offering with lighter shape, composition and texture alternatives,” said Robert Whittle, general manager at Pidy UK.
“Our fonçage pastries are in demand with chefs and caterers as the need for thin and healthy pastry continues to grow.”
