Due to the success of its winter desserts range in pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels up and down the country, leading Student Chef Challenge sponsor Country Range has further enhanced its sweet offering with the launch of three brand new frozen summer desserts – Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte, Tutti Frutti Charlotte and a St. Clements Pudding.
With the profit sector more frequently looking to the seasons for inspiration when deciding their menus, these three on-trend desserts are available to outlets exclusively through the Country Range Group network of independent wholesalers – www.countryrange.co.uk/where-to-buy/.
Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte – Fine décor sponge with strawberry compote and white chocolate truffle mousse layered with sponge laced with prosecco. Topped with strawberry mousse and garnished with strawberries and white chocolate shavings. Simply defrost overnight or for 8 hours in the refrigerator. Pre-portioned into 14 slices.
Tutti Frutti Charlotte – A fine charlotte of a sugar decor sponge with apricot compote, white chocolate and passion fruit truffle. Combined with a salad of fruits: pear, pineapple, kiwi, peach and blueberries; fruit glazed. Simply defrost overnight or for 8 hours in the refrigerator. Pre-portioned into 12 slices.
St. Clements Pudding – Sweet citrus lemon pudding baked with mandarins and a citrus lemon sauce. Packaged in 12 individual slices which can be microwaved from frozen in just 90 seconds.
Martin Ward, Country Range Group Trading Director, said:
“We’re delighted to be launching a new trio of summer desserts just in time for the busy alfresco season that we feel can provide a unique selling point to menus across the land. I don’t think the team has ever been quite as excited about a product launch, as the three new lines look sublime and when it comes to taste and flavour, they really are out of this world. With Prosecco a core trend in the UK, especially during summer, I have a suspicion that the Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte is definitely a product to watch this summer.”
