The feedback from customers and attendees at the Fancy Food Show was that each of these European dessert ingredients and products had certain features, flavors or styles that would make them a success in the United States.The four dessert ingredients and products are:

a. Grand Marnier Concentrate Gel

After an eight year absence from the US marketplace, the original Grand Marnier for professional chefs is back in a gelified form. This concentrate is an imported flavoring gel from France that is ideal for a variety of desserts, including pastry cream, cakes, crème brûlées and soufflés. It is a "must have" flavoring in every pastry kitchen. Due to its concentrated nature, professional chefs can cost effectively use this gel for their desserts.

“We were very excited to showcase the Grand Marnier concentrate gel at the Winter Fancy Food Show,” said Ramon Canova, president and CEO of Marque Foods. “Attendees at the show were extremely excited to learn about its availability for professional chefs in the United States. We believe that this world renowned dessert gel will be a favorite among top US pastry chefs, much as it is the industry standard favorite among top European pastry chefs.”

b. Grand Marque 65% Dark Chocolate Couverture with 100% Columbian Cacao Beans

This dark chocolate couverture has extraordinary floral tasting notes that are elegantly balanced and not bitter, with a long lasting flavor that stays in your palate long after the chocolate has melted. This high quality imported Belgium product contains only the finest cacao beans from Columbia.

“Our Grand Marque 65% dark chocolate couverture continues the tradition of Marque Foods offering fine imported Belgium chocolate couverture at a great price,” said Mr. Canova. “Attendees at the Winter Fancy Food Show loved the completely balanced, floral tone of this couverture that wasn’t overly sweet or bitter. We believe professional chefs will appreciate this couverture for their higher quality desserts, including flavoring chocolate mousse, or enrobing decadent chocolate or bon-bon products.”

c. Up-Scale Disposable Eco-friendly Catering and Buffet Containers and Plastic Cups

Suitable for the most elegant of presentations, these one-time use disposable cups are either biodegradable or recyclable, come in a variety of shapes and sizes, are break resistant and are ideal for showcasing verrines, desserts and chocolates. Imported from France, these cups are extremely versatile for the needs of chefs – from functioning as cooking containers to complimenting dessert products at banquets or on display cases.

“Attendees loved the elegant look of our French-imported one-time use containers and plastic cups on display at the Fancy Food Show,” said Mr. Canova. “Professional chefs will appreciate not just how these containers compliment their desserts and chocolates, but also their versatility and cost effectiveness since these cups are break resistant and do not have to be washed.”
