Pidy launches vegan shortcrust pastry case

23 September 2020

Belgian ready-to-fill pastry specialist Pidy has introduced a vegan shortcrust pastry case to meet the trend for plant-based eating that is firmly entrenched in the UK. Ideal for sweet tartlets of all kinds, the shortcrust pastry case has a delicate fluted design and can be packed with sweet sensations. A versatile addition to menus all year-round, the cases are 9.5cm in diameter for optimum-sized individual tartlets.

With the surge of vegan food popping up at every turn on the UK high street, it is crucial for foodservice professionals to have quality alternatives available to satisfy today’s diners who are opting for vegan, either through lifestyle choices or due to health reasons.

Made from a carefully developed plant-based recipe that uses responsibly sourced margarine, the pastry case has the same crisp, golden finish and ‘buttery’ flavour of the company’s signature classic sweet sablee shortcrust lines.

Pidy pastry is developed with the stability and consistency demanded by the professional kitchen but delivers the taste and texture of homemade. The ready-to-fill pastry case is pre-baked to seal in the crispiness and doesn’t require further cooking.

The pastry cases can be stored at ambient temperature and have a 9 month shelf life for ultimate convenience.

Robert Whittle, Managing Director at Pidy UK, commented:

“We’ve carefully developed a plant-based recipe that matches our traditional shortcrust, so that chefs and caterers can easily adapt menus to suit the increasing number of customers adopting such diets.

With vegan products dominating the UK food market and pastry being such a staple ingredient across menus, there is no better time to launch our own take on a plant-based pastry. The same secret family recipe and 100% natural ingredients, but now in a format that suits a wider range of diets.”
