Difference between artisan pastry and industrial pastry
The elaboration of desserts and sweet dishes is very common in any season of the year but even more at Christmas. What is the difference between artisan pastry and industrial pastry?
On the one hand, artisan pastry focuses on the preparation of sweet recipes in an artisanal way. That is to say, it involves less quantity and guarantees the quality of all the ingredientes. To elaborate this type of artisan pastry natural and artisan products are used. They provide a better flavour and texture. Artisan sweets are totally compatible with a healthy and balanced diet as long as an adequate amount is consumed.
On the other hand, industrial pastry focuses on the elaboration of sweet recipes in large quantities using industrial machinery. On occasions, lower quality aliments are used such as refined oils, poor quality flour, preservatives, additives, etc.
Therefore, artisan pastry allows the careful elaboration of lifelong desserts step by step. This way, we achieve a better quality product and a unique experience for any person’s palate, especially sweet lovers.
At Turrones Verdú Sirvent we have our own factory and a nougat bakery where we elaborate a great variety of cakes and artisan sweets.. Most of the recipes we prepare are the same as the ones our grandparents made more than one century ago. Thus, to offer quality and lifelong recipes, we elaborate these Christmas desserts on a limited basis.
