Pourable cream cheese creates new possibilities for pastry chefs

Cream cheese is a key ingredient for many restaurants and bakeries, forming the base of cheesecakes, pastry fillings and creamy dips. One drawback to cream cheese is the time it can take to soften, slowing down production times while chefs wait for it to come to room temperature so it can be properly whipped and mixed. To address this problem, Savencia created a pourable cream cheese product under its Smithfield brand. Developed with pastry chefs in mind, the product brings innovation to a previously stagnant category. Savencia worked with award-winning pastry chef and cookbook author Kathryn Gordon to develop sweet and savory recipes that highlight the product’s versatility. In this interview, Gordon explains the development process behind Smithfield Pourable Cream Cheese and the advantages it gives chefs — from labor savings to culinary creativity.Read more on https://www.smartbrief.com/original/2019/05/pourable-cream-cheese-creates-new-possibilities-pastry-chefs

Savencia Cheese USA Launches Supreme Brie

This company’s new brand reinvents the wheel, bringing unparalleled taste to the brie category

Savencia Cheese USA has announced the newest addition to its range of specialty cheese brands: Supreme Brie!

“To make Supreme, we source cream and put it into production of Brie the same day,” said Mikhail Chapnik, Vice President of Marketing. “This focus on freshness creates a creamier, smoother, and more spreadable Brie, that will appeal to a broad audience of cheese lovers who don’t typically consider Brie.”

According to the company’s press release, Savencia set out to reinvent Brie in developing this cheese, making it approachable, full-flavored, and creamy. Fresh cream is sourced daily from the farms around the company’s Lena, Illinois, creamery, and pasteurized immediately upon arrival for a consistently creamy taste and texture. The result is a “deliciously buttery” and smooth Brie, with a thin white rind you can eat. The 7 oz oval shape can be easily cut into slices, making it simple to serve.

Supreme Brie officially launched in grocery stores nationwide on May 20. Chapnik stated that this gives “a reinvented, modern twist to our Supreme line of fine cheeses.”

Coming in the fall of this year, Supreme Brie will also be available in a larger 4.4 lb. oval pack to be freshly cut onsite at deli departments, as well as single-serve miniature Brie Bites.
