Using Filled & Frozen Eclairs on Every Business Level
ifiGOURMET was on a mission to find the greatest filled and frozen eclairs to add to their frozen product line up for 2019. However, after much research and many taste tests, it was determined that no one's eclairs stood up to our high expectations and quality requirements. So...we decided to create our own.
ifiGOURMET now offers 9 all-natural flavors of buttery, French, and creamy eclairs. Flavor options include: Vanilla, Chocolate, Espresso, Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Strawberries and Cream, Pistachio Mascarpone, and Bananas Foster.
In honor of this delicious product launch, we want to show you how incredibly versatile these eclairs are in: your in-store bakery, your patisserie, and your high-end restaurants.
In-store bakeries: As They Are or Minimalist Décor
Place in your pastry case exactly how they are and showcase their natural beauty! These eclairs are perfect for instore bakeries that go through products fast-simply put them in the case and watch them fly off the shelves based on their taste alone. Have a bit of time? Top an espresso eclair with a mocha bean or pipe on some frosting and place a raspberry on top of the chocolate raspberry eclair. A time saver, simple, and delicious.

High-end Dining: "There's an Eclair in There?!" Gourmet Masterpieces
The eclair is the perfect starting point for a plated dessert masterpiece at your restaurant, hotel, casino, or higher-end dining. Jamie Caudy, the Executive Pastry Chef at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago says that "[The job] is easy when half of [the dessert] is done already!" when she used the eclair as a base for her plated pieces. Save time on the basics and let your creative genes flow as you top with fruit, mousse, 3-dimensional molds, purees, and more.
Option 4: Gourmet Plated Dessert.
