The Leading Independent Foodservice Brand A slice of summer >> Nothing tastes of summer quite like a delicious fruit-based dessert – and this month we’re launching three new additions to vamp up your summer desserts menu. Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte Strawberries and Prosecco have to be the perfect summer pairing (as our cover shot suggests). The combination of delicious summer fruit and bubbly fizz is too much to resist – and is sure to be a major hit with dessert lovers! The popularlty of Prosecco has grown beyond all expectation in the UK with sales reaching a staggering £356million last year - a growth of 34%. With this in mind, our development team has produced a delicious creation of fine décor sponge with strawberry compote and white chocolate truffle mousse layered with sponge laced with Prosecco. It is topped with strawberry mousse and garnished with strawberries and white chocolate shavings. Frozen for convenience, all you have to do is remove all packaging, place on a serving plate and defrost. Tutti Frutti Charlotte Fruit-based desserts are a great opportunity for a sweet treat whilst still bagging some essential vitamins and minerals. Pineapple and kiwi fruit are big flavour trends for 2017 and we’ve combined them with peach, pear, apricot and the ultimate superfruit blueberries to create this fabulous Tutti Frutti Charlotte, as seen on the cover of our Promotions supplement. A fine charlotte of a sugar decor sponge with apricot compote, it also features white chocolate and passion fruit truffle, combined with a salad of fruits.

The original church was rebuilt in the 15th century and the second was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. The existing church was rebuilt in 1687 by Sir Christopher Wren. The oranges and lemons refer to the citrus fruits unloaded at the nearby wharfs. St Clements Pudding Retro puddings are enjoying a major resurgence as sweet-toothed diners lap up traditional favourites. Foodie versions of rice pudding and Spotted Dick are enjoying popularity on the smartest of menus and, to tap into this trend, Country Range is launching a St Clements Pudding. This pudding was traditionally enjoyed on November 23, the feast day of St Clement, who was the patron saint of blacksmiths. Made from a traditional sponge, it is baked with mandarins and a citrus lemon sauce and is the latest addition to our premium pudding range. Simply microwave from frozen and serve with cream.
