The much-loved flavours of Butterscotch, Chocolate and Strawberry are part of the DaVinci Gourmet range of drizzles, allowing operators to respond to the trend for personalisation. Free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives, DaVinci Gourmet drizzles are packaged in easy to use squeezy bottles, allowing them to be displayed on caterers’ countertops where they can be upsold as optional extras.

köpa kvinnlig Viagra When it comes to providing an appetising and enticing dessert offering, the key is often in the writing of the menu. It is surprising how often an establishment menu just refers to ‘ice cream’.  Think how much more tempting it would be if the menu highlighted the wonderful flavours being offered with a short and concise description of the quality ingredients within. Identifying the high quality of ice cream being sold to customers not only encourages purchase but also helps to position a chef as a user of finest quality ingredients across the board.

Popular varieties from New Forest include the vibrant, award-winning Oriental Ginger or even something exotic such as Mojito sorbet or the delicious Peach Bellini ice cream.”

Carefully selecting flavours to complement another dessert adds a real depth and sense of quality to a dessert menu. For example, New Forest Ice Cream’s Clotted Cream flavour goes perfectly with a slice of homemade chocolate cake or their award winning and unique Liquorice flavour tastes great when used as an accompaniment to a citrus cheesecake, vanilla panna cotta or tiramisu.

Ideal for outlets in tourist locations, ice cream makes the perfect impulse purchase.

Updating dessert menus

tipos opções binárias Swedish baker Almondy believes it has created a way for operators to effortlessly update dessert menus and profit from the family pound.

While Almondy cakes are traditionally enjoyed as a standalone slice, caterers can easily add value – along with a higher mark-up – by serving them as a sundae alongside ice cream, which remains one of the UK’s favourite desserts according to the latest Horizons Menurama report. The new serving suggestions have been developed to capture the imagination of children and adults alike – Toblerone Sundae, Daim Sundae, Daim Kids Sundae and Peanut and Caramel Sundae – and are available to view on Almondy’s website to help operators tap into the growing demand for confectionary inspired desserts.

Andrew Ely, Managing Director of Almondy, comments: “The perfect match of ice cream with popular confectionery brands has already been harnessed by high street chains and is evident in the success of McDonald’s McFlurry partnership with Crunchie and Smarties and Pizza Hut’s Munchies ice cream. Sundaes are a winning combination for adults and kids alike so we are confident operators will be able to reap the rewards of our serving suggestions.”

By crumbling naturally gluten-free Almondy Toblerone, Daim or Peanut & Caramel over ice cream, pubs, restaurants and cafés can create a range of sundaes that appeal to the whole family. In fact, recent independent research commissioned by Almondy* found that customers are 22% more likely to eat sweet treats when out with children. Add this to research** that shows Almondy is recognised by 24% of UK consumers, and that 50% of respondents would order the Swedish cake if they saw it on the menu, and it’s easy to see why Almondy Sundaes are a simple way to up sell orders and increase profits.

“With the predicted 100 days of summer approaching, it’s highly likely there will be an increase in those choosing to eat out of home and we are keen to support caterers create a dessert menu that will appeal to those people, particularly families – an often profitable demographic for operators,” adds Andrew. “As well as our suggestions, caterers will be inspired and create their own combinations to make their menus truly unique.”

Almondy’s dedicated foodservice range comes frozen and pre-portioned, with a single slice defrosting in as little as ten minutes (surplus slices can be kept in the chiller for up to seven days), all valuable benefits to caterers where every penny counts.


For outlets looking to offer their customers a real point of difference, homemade ice-creams, sorbets and frozen yogurt can really enhance the perceived value of your dessert menu; and can often justify a higher price point.

Thanks to the Buffalo Ice-Cream Maker (DM067) from Nisbets, outlets can produce large capacities of professional-quality frozen desserts with one reasonably-priced piece of equipment. “With no need to pre-freeze the bowl, simply add your ingredients and turn the machine on!,” says Robin Candy, Buffalo Brand Director for Nisbets Plc.

“The powerful churning and freezing action ensures a smooth and professional finish, whilst the removable section of the lid allows additional ingredients such as dried fruit and nuts to be added at any stage of the freezing process.”
This stainless steel model is said to be ideal for countertop preparation and comprises a 1.5 litre non-stick bowl that is removable for easy cleaning. This allows for an output of 1.5 litres of product every 30 minutes, which is ideal for busy outlets.  Additional bowls are also available, so operators can benefit from the provision of additional flavours or styles.

“Producing ice-cream in-house not only allows operators greater control in what flavours/types of desserts they have on the menu, it also means they can cater for customers with specific dietary needs or intolerances by creating ice-cream especially for them,” comments Robin. “Or why not really stand out from the crowd and make a statement with your ice-cream flavour? Chilli and chocolate or popcorn perhaps?”

Dubbed ‘the ice cream machine of the future’, the Nemox Gelato 6K CREA from Mitchell & Cooper promises to consistently deliver artisan crafted ice cream that even the most discerning of diners will enjoy. “Exclusive to the UK, the innovative Gelato 6K brings technological advancement to any busy kitchen, producing delicious frozen desserts time and time again,” says Guy Cooper, Managing Director at Mitchell & Cooper.

“Equipped with highly sophisticated software incorporating a multitude of automatic features, the Gelato 6K CREA allows chefs the freedom of focusing on other culinary tasks, making it a piece of highly efficient equipment.”

Operators are able to choose from four different production programs in order to produce sweet and savoury ice creams, mousses, fondants, creams, sorbets, granitas and frozen yoghurt, as well as four specific storage programs to complement the characteristics of your creation. Taking just 12-15 minutes per batch, ten litres of flavour-packed frozen goodness can be served every hour.

For chefs working with a ready-to-use mix, the Gelato 6K also claims to guarantee a high quality result, and with no pasteurisation required, the whole process is made said to be easy to undertake. “The ability to vary the machine’s speed between 55 and 115 RPM – due to an electronic inverter system for regulation of the motor – means that more creative types looking to experiment with texture and flavour can achieve a consistency in line with their own unique specifications,” continues Gary.

“This machine is perfect for any catering team with varying levels of ice cream making experience.”
