Sea Pink Rosé Sorbet

Rosé lovers rejoice, there is a new taste sensation for summer: Sea Pink Rosé sorbet from Baboo Gelato, a cult Dorset brand. 
The company joined forces with award-winning West Country wine producer Furleigh Estate to produce the new sorbet -  a dry, still wine packed with ripe summer fruits and hints of floral scents. 
Annie Hanbury, Bologna-trained gelatiere and founder of Baboo Gelato, suggests serving with summer berries, ripe peaches or melon, or simply on its own with some almond biscotti. 

 

 

Young's Mussels

Young's Foodservice has launched rope-grown Mussels, sourced from the Irish waters of Bantry Bay, into their range. The mussels themselves are organic and perfect for summer menus. They take just 4 minutes to microwave from frozen.

The mussels come in a classic white wine, garlic and cream sauce. Mussels can be the perfect starter or main course, depending on portion size, and are ideal served with hand-cut bread and butter, or in a European style with a bowl of frites.

High in protein, low in fat and a source of Omega 3, mussels are also one of the most sustainable types of shellfish available.

 

 

Salted Caramel Rocky Road

Funnybones Foodservice has introduced a Rocky Road dessert with a few twists to the traditional recipe.

The dessert is served on top of a chocolate brownie with a smooth layer of salted caramel.

Tom Styman-Heighton, Development Chef at Funnybones Foodservice, said: "As specialist wholesalers of Tex-Mex and American foods, we love rich and rewarding US-style desserts, and we think this Salted Caramel Rocky Road is a real winner.

"With consumers driving the trend for indulgent sweet treats, this is an ideal traybake that can be sliced to serve as a dessert, perhaps with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or as a stand-alone cake to join a selection of sweet treats in a café or restaurant."

The Salted Caramel Rocky Road features a fudgy chocolate brownie base, topped with a layer of lightly salted caramel. To finish, there's chocolate malt balls for crunch, and soft meringues and dark chocolate sauce provide the final flourish.

 

 

Gluten Free Supercrunch Chips

BB Foodservice has launched a new range of premium, gluten-free Supercrunch Chips that rivals major brands on quality and price point.

The Supercrunch Chips range is a premium extension to the company's standard offering of Essentially Catering Chips. The chips cook in just four minutes. The potato starch coating, rather than wheatflour used in many chips, not only means Supercrunch Chips are 100 per cent gluten free but also hold the heat and stay crispy for longer.

Steve Carter, director of trading for Bestway Wholesale fresh, frozen and catering, said: "As a mainstay of the UK's food culture, customers expect quality chips wherever they are, whatever they're paying.

"We believe we've created an accessible option for quick service caterers to trade up and offer a more premium product with excellent margin potential alongside improved quality and taste.

"Our Essentially Catering Supercrunch Chips stay hot and crispy for longer and are all gluten free."

Theo's new frozen Fried Spinach and Kale Burger burgers offers a delicious blend of spices, chickpeas, spinach and kale. They have a crispy coating and are soft in the middle and full of taste. Outlets can fry them for an extra crispy outside.

The firm has also announced a new pre-fried quinoa falafel with a mixture of chickpeas and fresh spice.

Lee Sharpe, Theo's head of sales and marketing said: "The unstoppable rise in vegan diets, over 350 per cent in the 10 years to 2016, is something that can't be ignored and chefs should embrace the evolution.

"You only have to look at the way in which household names, from M&S to TGI Fridays, Lidl and Subway are innovating their vegan options to see the seismic shift in meat-free demand.

"We're making it easier for our customers to take advantage through the launch of Quinoa Falafel and a Spinach and Kale Burger – both offering a vegan option that will stand out on any out-of-home menu."
