STORY: Pidy's expanded range

Belgian pastry specialist Pidy’s newly expanded and award-winning Trendy range has everything chefs need to create delicious tartlets and sweet treats this season.

From the most recent additions of the ‘Micro’ Trendy (3cm x 1,7cm) and the ‘Trendy Shallow’ (8cm x 1,1cm) through to the classic ‘Trendy Round’ (8cm x 2cm) which is the ideal size for individual tartlets, the Trendy range has the perfect pastry for every menu.

What makes the Trendy collection so unique to Pidy is the modern shape of the pastry cases which are available in round, square or triangular varieties. With sweet, neutral or chocolate options possible in all products, the range is suitable for both cold and warm applications. The pressed shortcrust pastry has excellent moisture resistance and a crisp texture.

Pidy has also introduced a new optional feature of a plant-based coating which improves the moisture resistance even further. This coating ensures that the finished product retains its crispness for two days, even after being filled. This is an innovative new feature that Pidy offers which allows professionals to prepare and store the final product ahead of service.

Fabien Levet, Commercial Manager at Pidy UK, comments on the unmatched quality of the Trendy range: “We are delighted that the popularity of our Trendy collection allows us to continue developing and extending the range further to meet the specific needs of our customers so closely.

"We are confident that there is a shape, style and flavour for every menu need, from canapés, desserts and afternoon tea spreads. All products from the Trendy range feature Pidy’s signature melt-in-the-mouth pressed shortcrust pastry recipe and unique design, but now our customers can also add a protective coating for the very best results every time.”

Pidy products use 100% natural ingredients coupled with careful precision to produce gourmet products with the taste and texture of homemade, but with the stability and consistency demanded by the professional kitchen. The pastry cases can be stored at ambient temperatures and have a 12 months shelf life for ultimate convenience.
