A new cappuccino roulade for foodservice dessert menus has been launched by Collingtree, England-based frozen food distributor Central Foods. The hand-rolled marbled coffee and chocolate meringue treat is filled with mild coffee-flavored dairy cream and chocolate flakes.
Free from wheat and gluten, and therefore suitable for coeliacs and other consumers adhering to gluten-free diets, the Menuserve product is also aimed at vegetarians. Other flavors in the desserts range include lemon, mango and passion fruit, banoffee, raspberry and white chocolate, raspberry and hazelnut, Black Forest, and salted caramel.
“The Menuserve roulades are among our most popular products for many reasons, including their appealing presentation, delicious taste, home-made look, and the fact that they are suitable for a variety of diners, including vegetarians and those who avoid gluten,” said Gordon Lauder, managing director of Central Foods.
“With growing numbers of consumers following specific diets for health, religious or lifestyle reasons, it’s important that foodservice operators cater for all, and a product such as the Menuserve roulade is ideal,” added Lauder. “Frozen straight at the peak of quality and consistent every time, it’s sure to be a winner on any menu, whether offered in a restaurant, hotel, pub, café or other outlet.”
Distributed in twin-packs with each unit serving ten portions, the cappuccino roulade offering contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Two days of shelf life are guaranteed upon defrosting, and each slice provides substantial plate coverage.
