Storage:

Check your delivery upon arrival and query any obvious damage with the courier before accepting. Place the product in fridge ASAP, fridge storage is recommended for 3 to 5 days maximum, if longer times are desired then the product needs to be kept frozen from arrival. This is a thick Pie and thawing in fridge can take up to 2 days. Please remember insulated containers will prevent chilling & freezing unless lids are opened, repack or refrigerate and freeze all products covered to prevent product drying out! 

Products:

We have been asked to make genuine old style Home / Hand-made quality baked goods and we have responded! Our Pies are not full of air and we don’t use thick pastry, photos are of the product shown on here. New products to compliment our range are: Scones 3x varieties of Plain (for Devonshire), Cheese or Date. Muffins 3x varieties: Chocolate, Spiced Blueberry, Zingy Lemon Curd. A traditional Beef & Potato Pastie and a Super Sausage Roll are also available…. these are all made in the style and taste that your grandparents would recognise and enjoy! If you have a product you’d like us to make please ask and we will contact to see if it can be done for you!

Demand:

Our product reaching our customers as required is essential as is your success. Our advice is to hold our products frozen until required, thaw overnight in your fridge as required for the next day’s sales, hold products in your display fridge until purchased and heat to order if in a Café situation, this will reduce (eliminate) any wastage and keep the products in good condition until heated or sold, for Pie warmer product thaw overnight and heat as mentioned in “presentation”. Scones or Muffins require 10-15 seconds in the microwave if held in a fridge to freshen them up before service to the customer. Plain Scones with just Butter or Jam & Cream as a Devonshire offering, Cheese or Date Scones with butter only. We have a qualified Chef here to help you!

Presentation:

It is not recommended to totally reheat from frozen to consumption in a microwave… pastry and microwaves don’t go well together unless for very short times! From fridge heat Pies in the oven on convection fan-bake at 140c for 10 to 15 minutes, all times are variable and if more pies are loaded into the oven heating times will alter/increase. Test inside temperature with a small probe thermometer and adjust your times to suit your equipment, if not hot in the centre lower your oven temp to 120c and increase your time by 5-10 minutes, the inside temp should be minimum 65c. Keep Pie warmer at 70c and use a water dish to maintain fresh quality. We are happy to offer assistance based on your specific requirements and equipment ratings. 

Please discuss with us regarding packing being oven / heatproof if product is to be reheated in its cardboard containers. We recommend testing the core temperature with a small probe thermometer to ensure product is heated properly and safe to consume, adjust times to suit or contact us for advice!
