All Butter Croissant
This is our top-selling line and the All Butter Croissant is a guaranteed crowd pleaser The judges comments were:
“A well risen glazed pastry with a buttery aroma, the judges found it deliciously light and fluffy with a pleasing crisp exterior.”
“A generously sized croissant with a decent golden brown, glazed appearance… the flavour is good and we enjoyed the slightly acidity on the nose.”
This product is stocked in 351 of our stockists across the UK, so if you’ve not tried it yet, then you’ve probably not got too far to travel!
Steak & Stilton Puff Pastry Pie
This delicious conveniently portioned Steak & Stilton Puff Pastry Pie, with a (hand finished) pastry twist is the ultimate in comfort food and features British ingredients sourced from Nottinghamshire.
“The sauce is tasty, and thick, surrounding tender and flavoursome beef. The filling is generous, and the savoury addition of Stilton cheese gives an additional flavour combination.”
“The crispness of the pastry was pleasing and we think it has potential to be a great product. As it is, we enjoyed it a lot from a comfort-food perspective.”
The award-winning Steak & Stilton pie is sold in 127 Fieldfare stockists.
