Dan’s Specialty Items For Valentines Day

Share this Post

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and nothing says romance like the portfolio of specialty products available through Artisanal Provisions.

Individual Desserts

Upselling desserts can always be a challenge after a satisfying meal, so our selections of individual desserts are perfect for sharing and an easy sell. From our selection of Galaxy desserts like the individual Triple Mousse cakes and Tiramisu Mousse Cake to White Toque’s Gianduja Chocolate Shortcake with a crunchy crumble base and fondant chocolate cream that gives rise to a flavorful play on textures.  

Dessert Menu Shareables

Plate up our ready-to-bake, caramel-filled Churros, imported from Spain, for an on-trend sharable dessert. We suggest making a dip for the churros by simply whisking together Belgioioso Mascarpone with the SOFI Award-winning Divina Sour Cherry spread.  Or try the allure of hand dipped strawberries. Start with Markon Strawberries and dip into Pate a Glacer from Noel, available in white and dark chocolate, is a quick and easy way to create the perfect coating every time - no tempering needed. Simply heat and dip! Pate a Glacer is perfect for dipping fruit, cookies, profiteroles or éclairs, cake enrobing or filigree decorations and shavings. Keep it on hand to upgrade all your desserts.

Picture Perfect Plating

For a perfect finish to any plate, we recommend our Lafruitiere line of purées. Lafruitiere is a high-quality fruit purée in a convenient package. With a variety of flavors to choose from, any dessert is made easy. All year long, Lafruitiere selects the best fruits, to insure the consistency and quality of their purées. Use the raspberry purée to make the perfect Melba Sauce by simply heating the raspberry purée with some red currant jelly, sugar, thickening with a corn starch slurry and then straining through a fine mesh. Use any of the other purées and let your imagination run wild to create amazing finishing sauces for any dessert!
