Innovation on the Menu: Flavor Trends - US - June 2014
“Restaurant operators don’t necessarily need to reinvent the wheel if they want to stay on trend for new flavors and cuisines. Instead, focusing on how restaurants can differentiate themselves from in-home cooking through authentic ethnic flavors, fresh herb combinations, and unique sauce pairings can garner more interest in a restaurant, especially when all of these factors have a positive impact on a consumer’s dining out experience. In addition, keeping a close eye on changing demographics and preferences both in home and away from home allows operators to develop new menu dishes that are relevant now, rather than relevant before.”
– Katrina Fajardo, Foodservice Analyst
