Pidy does the double at The Great Taste Awards

Pidy, the Belgium-based, ready-to-fill pastry manufacturer, has achieved a One Star accolade for both its 4cm & 22cm Fluted Sweet Sablee tartlets.

When publishing this year’s results, The Great Taste Awards said just 25% of entries achieved One Star this year. A One Star rating means the product is deemed “simply delicious; a food that delivers fantastic flavour”.

Established in 1994, the Great Taste Awards is the largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for fine food and drink. The annual awards see more than 12,000 products from across the globe blind tasted by 12 panels of experts made up of top chefs, cookery writers, food critics, restaurateurs and fine food retailers.

The award-winning products received positive feedback from the judges as follows:

22cm Fluted Sweet Sablee: “Good even colour with a lovely graduation on the fluting. A nice crunch in slicing. Rich and buttery flavour without being overly sweet. A really perfect balance of sweetness and salt. Overall, a delicious pastry case.”

4cm Fluted Sweet Sablee: “Beautifully light and crumbly, confidently made and delivers as a result. Attractive well-presented case. Short buttery texture that is well constructed and would hold a filling well. This is a well-made, enjoyable product.”
