Premium pastry push

first_imgBakehouse has launched a new range of fully baked pastries called Patisse, designed to meet the demand for premium sweet pastries reminiscent of those found in high-end patisserie outlets.The new pastries come in six different varieties: caramel & pecan rosette; rhubarb crumble square; orange & poppy seed rosette; chocolate & raspberry panier; passion fruit & raspberry diamond; and apple & blackberry panier. The thaw-and-serve products are made using all-butter dough and real fruit pieces, and undergo two glazing processes before and after baking.”Our research has told us that there was a gap in the market for top-end sweet pastries and that products in this area are not readily available outside of handcrafted patisserie outlets,” said Peter Drew, innovations director at Bakehouse.The firm has also added a new Multiseed Rusticata to its Rusticata range for 2010, which already includes Baguette Rusticata, Demi Baguette Rusticata in 120g and 170g variants and a Rusticata Dinner Roll Selection. Its Rusticata breads are designed to combine the qualities of the two most popular bread types in the UK the French baguette, and Italian ciabatta. The breads, which feature a combination of: pumpkin seeds, linseeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds, are stonebaked and are made using extra virgin olive oil, and semolina flour.Supplied frozen, Rusticata loaves simply need to be baked-off for 12 minutes to refresh.last_img read more

PHOTO/CourtesyNAIROBI, Kenya, May 13- Robert Matano’s run of three consecutive wins since taking charge as Tusker head coach was brought into a screeching halt after suffering a 2-1 loss at home to Kariobangi Sharks at the Ruaraka Complex on Sunday.Despite Boniface Muchiri’s late goal for the brewers, Pascal Ogweno and Eric Kapaito’s early goals had already done the damage to end Sharks’ poor run of seven matches without a win, handing coach William Muluya a massive reprieve. Defender Ogweno opened the scoring in the fifth minute when he slotted home a penalty after a Tusker defender handles inside the box. Kapaito then broke his own goal drought with a well taken 34th minute goal powering a header past Duncan Ochieng from Patillah Omotto’s freekick.In other matches played on Sunday, Allan Wanga and Ugandan Hassan Kikoyo grabbed a goal a piece as Kakamega Homeboyz bounced back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Chemelil Sugar.In Thika, new head coach John Njogu started his tenure on a resounding note, guiding Thika United to a second consecutive win with a well worked 3-1 victory over Sony Sugar, their third win of the season.At the Mumias Sports Complex, Wazito FC suffered a third loss in four matches after going down 2-1 to Vihiga United while at the Camp Toyoyo Grounds, visitors Nzoia Sugar registered a similar scoreline over Posta Rangers.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
