With the summer well and truly over, the temperature dropping and the evenings getting shorter, attention has turned to Christmas menu planning and sourcing seasonal ingredients. Vol-au-vents are the epitome of retro chic and a festive party essential and now, thanks to the latest introduction from Pidy, with a large star shaped pastry case, you can add a real sense of celebration to any Christmas menu.
As a global leader in the production of ready-to-fill pastry, Pidy offers an extensive range of vol-au-vents for all occasions, including a dedicated festive range. In homage to the traditional bite-sized canape, the launch of the large star vol-au-vent offers even greater flexibility on Christmas menus. The larger size offers a contemporary take on the dazzling canape and can be used to create sensational starters, main meals or even desserts, thanks to its neutral recipe.
Pidy’s large star vol-au-vent combines both tradition and trendiness in equal measures and Christmas is all about the balance of the two. The vol-au-vents are ambient, available in catering packs of 24 and are ready-to-fill with any delicious festive filling. The indulgent buttery taste of Pidy’s traditional puff pastry recipe complements both sweet and savoury, hot and cold fillings alike. Vol-au-vents are always a big hit during the festive period but why not include something that ensures your menu stands out that little bit more? The unique shape and size of the vol-au-vent is sure to capture customers’ attention, whilst providing more space for delicious fillings. Including the Pidy star vol-au-vent on menus is the best way to reinvent what customers typically expect from the retro pastry case and highlight its true potential. As a manufacturer of high-quality and innovative ready-to-fill pastry cases, Pidy is centrally positioned to lead this vol-au-vent revolution.
Crafting exceptional menus will not only tempt customers through the door during the festive period but also ensure repeat business throughout the year.
