A stunning new cappuccino roulade has been launched by frozen food distributor Central Foods for foodservice dessert menus.
The delicious hand-rolled, soft, marbled coffee and chocolate meringue roulade, is filled with mild coffee-flavoured real dairy cream and chocolate flakes.
Free from wheat and gluten, and therefore suitable for coeliacs and those on a gluten-free diet, the cappuccino roulade is also suitable for vegetarians – providing a tasty treat that’s perfect for a range of dietary requirements.
It is the latest roulade in the popular Menuserve range of desserts supplied by Central Foods, one of the UK’s leading frozen food suppliers, and joins mouth-watering flavours that include lemon, mango and passionfruit, 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. Frozen straight at the peak of quality and consistent every time, it’s sure to be a winner on any menu, whether that’s in a restaurant, hotel, pub, café or other food service outlet.”
The cappuccino roulade, which comes in a twin-pack with each roulade serving ten portions, contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. Each slice provides a generous plate coverage, giving excellent value-for-money.
The cappuccino roulade has a defrosted shelf-life of two days, if kept chilled.
