Every year I look forward to reading about flavour trends from different companies. It's a fascinating topic and McCormick has a team of experts that worked together to create the Flavour Forecast 2016. Chefs, culinary professionals, trend trackers and food technologists bring us emerging culinary trends and delicious innovations for the years to come. McCormick is a global leader in flavour and they believe that flavour connects people and cultures around the world.
You might be curious to find out what the new food trends are this year. The McCormick Flavour Forecast 2016 launched yesterday and hopefully it will inspire you to cook your own dishes. Coming up I will share with you some of the recipes that I will create incorporating flavours from this report:
The Flavour Forecast 2016
The 2016 report includes six 'themes' - TASTE TOMORROW TODAY.
BLENDS WITH BENEFITS:
- Flavourful herbs and spices and everyday versatility to good-for-you ingredients like matcha and chia.
HEAT + TANG:
- Spicy finds a welcome contrast with tangy accents - lime, rice vinegar, yuzu, tamarind, Meyer lemon, cranberry, kumquats and ponzu - to elevate the eating experience.
- Modern dishes reconnect with native ingredients to celebrate food that tastes real, pure and satisfying.
ALTERNATIVE ''PULSE'' PROTEINS:
- Packed with protein and nutrients, pulses such as dried peas, beans and lentils are elevated when paired with delicious ingredients.
- Three classic culinary techniques provide new tastes and inspiration in the creation of the latest libations.
I am excited about the McCormick Flavour Forecast 2016 because they included a lot of ingredients that I like to use in my kitchen. I am looking forward to develop recipes using Matcha Green Tea, Turmeric, Cranberry beans, chia seeds and herbs, just to name a few! I have travelled to Malaysia, last year, and still remember the aromatic and flavourful dishes that we ate. That brings back happy memories!
What new recipes, inspired by this Flavour Forecast, are you going to make in 2016?
