Get happy with gluten-free chocolate brownies from Funnybones Foodservice

With the demand for gluten- free products continuing to increase, Funnybones Foodservice has launched a range of sweet treats to help operators offer gluten-free alternatives that deliver on both quality and taste. The range includes a Triple

Layer Carrot Cake. Made with a mix of pineapple, carrots and coconut with a combination of infused mixed spices, this modern take on an old classic is filled with smooth cream cheese frosting and finished with nibbed hazelnuts. Frozen for convenience, 14 pre-portioned slices also

make for accurate portion control.

For those catering to chocolate lovers, the moist richness of Funnybones’ new Chocolate Brownies are delicately baked, gooey brownies infused with rich dark and milk chocolate pieces to create a full-bodied flavour. Available in 36 pre-portioned slices, simply dust with a little icing sugar for an attractive finish and serve as a morning/afternoon pick-me-up, or warm through for a decedent dessert. Serve with cream, ice-cream, custard – or even more chocolate!

DaVinci Gourmet’s Salted Caramel syrup takes its inspiration from Brittany

With a blend of sweet caramel and a hint of savoury saltiness, DaVinci Gourmet says its new Salted Caramel syrup is a timely addition to any speciality beverages menu. Originating from France, and inspired by the traditional heavily salted butter caramels of Brittany, the syrup has a salty-sweet aroma that perfectly complements the bitter undertones of great coffee, as well as chocolate and nutty flavours – helping to create perfectly balanced beverages each and every time. DaVinci Gourmet brand manager, Steph Goldie, says:

“With latest consumer research citing Salted Caramel as one of the newest flavour combinations to feature on drink menus

and growing by 12% in popularity year-on-year – it lends a more gourmet and much more on-trend flavour to plain caramel. “With DaVinci Gourmet’s Salted Caramel syrup, operators can create appealing, fashionable and profitable menus, with speciality recipes such as Salted Caramel Orange Latte and Salted Caramel Cookie Frappe.” Available in one-litre bottles, Salted Caramel

can provide approximately 62 (12oz) servings, based on two pumps in an average drink.

The new Tiepolo pizza oven from leading Italian brand Cuppone, flies the flag for energy efficiency, according to UK distributor Linda Lewis Kitchens (LLK). Linda Lewis, LLK’s managing director, says: “Tiepolo’s

control panel is a revolutionary development from Cuppone that serves to maximise energy efficiency and provide improved control of heat. “We are delighted to introduce Tiepolo to our product range. This model is ideal for any establishment that needs a reliable, versatile and high performance workhorse that can deliver consistent results and authentic tasting pizzas to their customers quickly, without compromising on flavour and quality and without wasting energy.”

IT COSTS LESS “If I was setting up a pizza restaurant on my own, I would

choose Tiepolo without hesitation.” Tiepolo also boasts a low 12V halogen lighting system that is capable of withstanding the extremely high temperatures required for cooking pizza; whilst a panoramic glass window enables progress to be checked whilst cooking, without opening doors and wasting heat.
