Pots & Co Tiramisu 32

Desserts maker Pots & Co has launched a limited-edition tiramisu to support frontline NHS staff.

Its Pick-me-up Tiramisu contains mascarpone and coffee cream, finished with a biscotti and chocolate crunch topping. Available in a twin pack, it is set to launch in 240 Waitrose stores nationwide for an rrp of £3.50 this week.

The alcohol-free pudding was a collaboration between the Pots & Co innovation team and Michelin-starred chef Phil Howard.

Over the past six weeks, Dyer and research and development manager Andrew Chelley have been working with Howard to prepare, cook and deliver more than 4,000 meals to frontline workers from his restaurant in Elystan Street, Chelsea, London.

The puddings are packaged in randomised coloured pots, giving customers the opportunity to collect the rainbow as a symbol of their support for frontline workers, said the firm.

All profits from the product will be donated to frontline NHS staff in partnership with charities Heroes and The Care Workers’ Charity.

“The launch of our chefs’ take on a Pick-me-up Tiramisu in Waitrose marks the next step in this journey,” said Pots & Co founder Julian Dyer.

“Whether donations from our desserts directly help the NHS staff that have helped us throughout these tough times, or support care workers, we hope the nation can get onboard and help give thanks yet again for their extraordinary efforts.”
