Artisan baker Speciality Breads has taken its innovation to a whole new level after launching a world-first – a unique Scone-Brioche cross, aptly named the Scioche™.
Blitzing baking boundaries when it comes to NPD, the Scioche™ combines Speciality Breads’ award-winning brioche recipe with the most loved elements of a traditional scone to offer the best of both bakes.
An ingenious solution to the foodservice problem of finding a superb quality frozen scone, the unique Scioche™ was showcased and sampled for the first time at the Casual Dining Show last week.
A glazed top, packed with a generous amount of fruit and a buttery inside, this is so much more than a scone! Either split and top with cream and jam or toast and serve with stewed fruit. The Scioche™ contains no preservatives so they are best eaten on the same day they are bought or defrosted.
SCIOCHE™ (SICILIAN LEMON & POPPYSEED)
A new product deserves a new flavour so this beauty is made with zesty Sicilian lemons and packed with poppy seeds. An incredibly versatile product, it’s beautiful when served with clotted cream, lemon curd and topped with blueberries but it also lends itself well to being served toasted and topped with crabmeat or scallops & chorizo.
The Scioche™ is the brainchild of Speciality Breads’ MD Simon Cannell, who commented:
“Speciality Breads has always been known for its innovation but when I started as MD in September, we made the decision that in 2017 we would kick it up a few gears. The Scioche™ is just the beginning but what a cracking product it is. Unique, quirky, versatile, great tasting – I think it will do huge things in 2017.”
The Scioche™ variants are 140g, come in boxes of 20 and are being targeted at the café, hotel, garden centre and pub sectors. The official roll out date of the exciting products is the 3rd April but interested parties can pre-order by contacting email@example.com.
Established in 1996 in Margate, Speciality Breads provides an ever-growing, artisan selection of over 100 freshly frozen breads, which are hand-made by the company’s master bakers using Red Tractor certified British flour. The company distributes its products to a UK-wide network of wholesalers, who in turn supply leading restaurants, pubs, cafés, caterers and hotels throughout the UK.
Flying the flag for British bakers, Speciality Breads has continued its astronomical rise since starring at the Olympics in 2012 with 30% year-on-year growth and the launch of a new £3 million state of the art bakery in November 2015. The company is a sponsor of the National Burger Awards, was nominated Responsible Business Champion for its constituency and its Brioche and Ciabatta ranges recently gained the much-sought after “Approved Product” endorsement from the Craft Guild of Chefs.
