Get Started with a Must Try Flavour Trend for 2019: “The Need for Seed”

Little package. Giant punch! We’re talking seeds of the crunchy, citrusy, nutty, buttery and pungent form. It’s time the whole world started sprinkling, cracking, crusting, toasting and of course eating them on everything — like overnight coconut guava basil seed pudding, Cajun puffed lotus seed snack mix and gomasio, a Japanese black and white sesame seed seasoning blend. Seeds are food, fuel and flavour, and they give us texture, taste and wholesome goodness that makes both sweet and savoury dishes pop.
