The perfect excuse for a pre-wedding get-together, Patisserie Valerie announces the launch of its new summer menu and reveals its redesigned range of classic patisserie and gateaux which are now available from its patisseries nationwide. The butter is well and truly back!
These exciting launches are the first steps in the redevelopment of the much-loved brand as the business re-focuses on quality ingredients, creative designs and ethical sourcing. The new ranges will be focused around a core range of the favourites that Patisserie Valerie is famous for, alongside exciting new flavours and fresh seasonal ingredients.
At the heart of Patisserie Valerie's range are five individual patisserie that have been lovingly reworked using high quality ingredients to produce exciting flavours, better texture and clean, creative designs. They include Strawberry Gateau - Layers of light vanilla sponge filled with whipped cream and fresh strawberries with a strawberry glaze, Double Choc - Moist dark chocolate sponge layers with dark luxury chocolate cream, finished with chocolate ganache and a white and dark choc swirl, Blackforest Chocolate sponge layered with whipped cream and cherries.
Finished with amarena cherries and chocolate fans, Baked Cheesecake - a light vanilla cream cheese baked on a crumbly biscuit base and Mille-Feuille - crispy butter rich puff pastry layers filled with St. Honore cream, decorated with fondant icing!
The menu has a broad range of plant-based options and all patisserie and gateaux are suitable for vegetarians. The company is also pleased to launch a new refreshing cold drink range for adults and kids in partnership with fresh British brand Cawston Press. The range has no added sugar and the brand is closely aligned with new values of Patisserie Valerie.
