Look beyond the glass and travel across America with new recipes featuring delicious Florida orange and grapefruit juices and fresh citrus. In past years, menus have focused on global flavors; now, the rich culinary heritage of the United States is the source for inspiration. This trend stems from the ongoing movement surrounding local, regional and seasonal food sourcing, along with a desire to support local economies.
In today’s recovering economy, consumers continue to be conscious and cautious with their dollars. Diners are hesitant to spend on extremely risky dishes; American Regionalism, however, provides the best of both worlds. Iconic dishes are familiar enough to deliver comfort, while regional flavors and indigenous ingredients provide a twist that inspires adventurous dining.
The versatility of Florida citrus allows you to flawlessly integrate regional American flavors throughout your menu. Head west with Chicken Chile Relleno with Florida Orange Salsa Verde. Or take customers to Maine with New England Lobster Boil with Florida Orange Butter Sauce, so authentic you can almost smell the salty air. For dessert, offer a down-home favorite with a Florida citrus pick-me-up like Florida Orange Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.
