|“Barbecue sauce can be used all year round to deliver bold, rich flavours – not just for summer,” says Kira Smith, Corporate Chef of Kraft Canada’s Culinary Centre. “Barbecue sauce can be infused into many seasonal dishes: the rich braises, stews and chilis of fall and winter, for example. Don’t limit yourself to pairing them with main dish meats either; add a dollop of barbecue to your mashed sweet potatoes and toss in some crisply cooked bacon.”|
With restaurant customers leaning towards more adventurous and globally-inspired flavours, using barbecue sauce on items beyond grilled entrée proteins is a growing trend. Diners can now find barbecue flavoured items across many restaurant menus including on pizzas and flatbreads, in dips and on sandwiches.
