New pastries from Harry Gow bring a taste of the continent to the north of Scotland

Harry Gow has introduced a range of delicious pâtisserie to its shops across the Highlands and Moray

THE NORTH of Scotland’s most popular bakery has introduced a range of delicious pâtisserie to its shops across the Highlands and Moray.

Harry Gow has added the new French pastries to its range – inspired by the Gow family’s travels on the continent.

Amongst the new goodies on offer are pains au chocolat and the long-awaited arrival of Harry Gow’s award-winning croissants, awarded a National Silver medal at this year’s Scottish Baker of the Year Awards.

Fraser Gow, director at Harry Gow, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our new pastries. We’ve been working hard in our test kitchen to perfect each and every recipe, and now we can’t wait to see our customers tuck into the fruits of our labours!

“Baking heritage and tradition is massively important to us at Harry Gow – we’re sixth generation bakers, after all. Many of us have studied traditional baking techniques across Europe to ensure we’re always learning, improving and innovating, and French and Danish pastries have always been something we wanted to make more of.”

The bakery will be offering its new pastries on alternating days. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays Harry Gow fans will be able to get their hands on croissants – with pains au chocolat available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Fraser explained: “By alternating the days our pastries are available, we’re excited to be able to offer our customers more choice when they visit Harry Gow. This means we can have a much larger range of pastries every week, meaning that every customer can pick up their favourites and experience the amazing flavours they have come to expect from our bakes.

“Each pastry starts with a sourdough starter – meaning our dough ferments and bubbles away for three days before it gets anywhere near our oven. That’s how we can ensure that each and every bite is as delicious as the next.

“And we’re not stopping here… we have plans for a whole host of new pastries over the coming months. So watch this space!”

Harry Gow’s new pastry range follows a period of creativity for the bakery, which has also recently launched a new fudge doughnut, slathered with gooey fudge icing and filled with sweet vanilla cream, and a chocolate eclair stuffed with rich, fresh cream.

Harry Gow is a popular bakery with 18 shops spread across Inverness, the Highlands and Moray – including one recently opened in conjunction with retail giant, Asda. It was crowned the first Scottish Baker of the Year in 2012, and to date is the only bakery to have scooped the top award twice – winning again in 2019. Harry Gow’s products are also found in Co-op stores across the north of Scotland.
