Nuts & Nut Pastes

Nuts & Nut Pastes

Gourmet nuts and nut pastes for all your desserts and patisserie needs. From store-cupboard basics like ground almonds for tarts and macarons, through to chestnut cream for a classic Mont Blanc dessert and pure hazelnut paste for wonderfully nutty homemade praline.

Fans of French patisserie will love our pure almond paste. Fold into creme patissiere to fill fruit tarts or mix with sugar to make the filling for almond croissants.

We also have the finest nuts and nut pastes from Italy. Try pure Bronte DOP pistachio paste for your best pistachio ice cream yet, or gianduja made with Piemonte IGP hazelnuts for dreamy chocolate hazelnut truffles.

What's the difference between nut paste and nut butter?

Nut paste and nut butter are the same! In general, nut butters are purely nuts ground to a paste. In some baking or patisserie books, you may see nut paste defined as ground nuts which have sugar added. But here at Sous Chef, all our own brand nut pastes are sugar free.
