Love is in the air for pastry brand Pidy as it launches the heart-shaped Sablee pastry case as a Valentine’s Day treat.

Made from Pidy’s shortcrust pastry, the Sablee measures 14.9 x 2.2cm and is described by the brand as an “ideal size for sharing and adding a romantic flair to menus”.

Fabien Levet, national account manager for Pidy UK, said the pastry would provide chefs with an opportunity to create a night to remember.

“Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest nights of the year in the catering industry, as many couples choose to dine out for a meal to celebrate this special occasion,” said Levet.

“A special menu full of impressive dishes, amazing flavours and quality, seasonal ingredients will ensure customers enjoy their special evening. It’s all about adding an element of individuality and marking the occasion with a bespoke menu.”

Pidy introduced the Apericoeur – a bite-sized heart-shaped pastry range – as part of last year’s Valentine’s Day offering.
