Tip of the Week: Use global inspiration

Tip of the Week Sponsored By:

Let’s face it: your menu could use a bit of jazzing up. So how can you keep your food true to your restaurant’s style while making changes that appeal to the masses? It’s easy – go globe-trotting!

Use exotic flavours in your cuisine in place of classic ingredients to up the interest factor. Try replacing marinara with sriracha mayo on a meatball sub to create a Vietnamese Bánh mì sandwich. Use coconut milk and lemongrass in noodle soup for a decidedly Thai twist.  Or, add tandoori spice to roasted chicken for a spicy, Indian-inspired flavour. These changes are subtle and will still let your dishes and ingredients shine through, just with a more exotic flavour.
