The Marketplace Keeping you up-to-date on new products and services within the foodservice industry PORTUGUESE PERFECTION >> Family-owned Portuguese bakery Panidor has launched two new products to help operators take advantage of the growing trend for Portuguese cuisine. Their Portuguese Fisherman’s Tart is based on traditional Bacalhau (cod), combined with potato and a creamy white sauce in a crunchy, flaky pastry case. These savoury tarts are ideal for buffets and event catering, as well as being a unique starter when plated with mixed leaves and dressing. Packed in cases of 36, simply bake from frozen. Panidor also produce Portuguese custard tarts – the famous Pastel De Nata – in a thaw and bake format. Packed in cases of 60, they’re a must-have for coffee shops. GO POTTY FOR CHEESE >> With party season fast approaching, Futura Foods is introducing an authentic new Italian cheese into its range in a bid to help outlets drive incremental sales. The cheese specialist is launching a new Provolone, a semi- hard, cow’s milk cheese which originates from Southern Italy. With a nutty, slightly piquant taste which intensifies when melted, its versatility makes it a unique and delicious option for sharing boards, starters and mains alike in the run-in to Christmas. Available in ready-to-bake 100g and 200g rustic clay pots, the easy-serve format means busy chefs can create a theatrical dish with the absolute minimum of fuss. Try serving with a rocket and rosemary salad garnish and crusty Italian bread for a popular sharing board - or simply sprinkle with paprika, chilli powder and basil for an easy and impressive starter. For the more adventurous, a provolone soufflé with porcini mushrooms and pea purée makes for a premium main that’s also suitable for vegetarians.
