World Flavors & Recipes

As you follow the flavor trends of today and craft your menus for tomorrow, you can’t help but notice your patrons interests in the flavors and cuisines of the world.

From the explosion of cooking shows on television to the mainstreaming of global cultures, customers have become more sophisticated than ever. They may travel the world or watch the travel channel but, when they come to your restaurant, they want to try new things and feel comfortable doing so. This paradox is easily answered with an ingredient as familiar and complex as the California Raisin.

This traditional American favorite has been a staple food in ancient cultures from all over the globe. Try adding California Raisin products to Mediterranean, Asian, Indian and Latin cuisine. These cultures used raisins long before they became a part of the oatmeal cookie.
