Foothill dining: McCormick Flavor Forecast 2013

By
From page B2 | December 31, 2012 |

McCormick and Company Incorporated, a global leader in flavor, unveiled its McCormick Flavor Forecast 2013. Now in its 13th year, the report is an annual spotlight on the emerging trends in terms of flavor innovation over the next several years.

“Through the Flavor Forecast, McCormick leads the way in identifying flavor trends that serve as catalysts for innovation in many favorite retail brands and restaurant menus, including our own products,” said Alan Wilson, chairman, president and CEO of McCormick. “With our global team of experts — spanning consumer and industrial segments in more than 100 countries — McCormick has a unique capability of identifying new and emerging trends on a global scale.”

“At McCormick, it’s our passion for flavor that helps us deliver such a strong track record of identifying the trends consumers will come to love,” added Wilson.

Past reports have helped move once unfamiliar ingredients and trends into mainstream popularity.

When chipotle was featured in the Flavor Forecast 2003, it was virtually unknown in the broad consumer marketplace. Since then, U.S. menu items mentioning chipotle flavor have increased by a staggering 214 percent1.

The trend of infusing foods with cocktail-inspired flavors appeared in the 2008 Flavor Forecast. About 3,000 new grocery products have been launched since then featuring a variety of flavors like whiskey, ale, bourbon, brandy and more.

The much-anticipated forecast report is created by a team of McCormick chefs, sensory scientists, dietitians, trend trackers, marketing experts and food technologists from around the world.

In its second year as a global report, the Flavor Forecast showcases trends and flavors taking root in cultures spanning Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, Latin America and North America.

With the Flavor Forecast 2013, McCormick has identified five trends that the company believes will drive new product development and innovative menu additions over the coming years. Ten accompanying flavor combinations illustrate how these trends are coming to life through taste.

“Around the world, we’re seeing a fascinating collision of tradition and innovation. Authentic, real ingredients are still at the core — though now they’re being enjoyed in unique, updated ways that reflect a much more personalized approach to cooking and eating,” said McCormick Executive Chef, Kevan Vetter.

One leading trend featured in this year’s Flavor Forecast is “Global My Way,” which describes how people are discovering formerly “ethnic” ingredients beyond their traditional uses, incorporating those flavors into everyday eating.

“Don’t be surprised if in the next few years Japanese Katsu, a tangy cross between barbecue and steak sauce, and cajeta, a Mexican caramel, gain the broad appeal that once-regional tastes like Asian hot chili sauce have achieved,” said Vetter.

In addition to “Global My Way,” following are the five leading global food trends with 10 flavor combinations featured in the McCormick Flavor Forecast 2013:

 

No Apologies Necessary — Diving headfirst into sumptuous flavors to enjoy the gratification of a momentary escape

• Decadent bitter chocolate, sweet basil and passion fruit — An intensely indulgent combo that delights all the senses
• Black rum, charred orange and allspice — An instant tropical getaway, this sultry collision balances richness and warmth

 

Personally Handcrafted — A hands-on approach showcasing the very best of ourselves

• Cider, sage and molasses — Rustic and comforting, this combo brings natural goodness to every meal of the day
• Smoked tomato, rosemary, chile peppers and sweet onion — Smoky, sweet and spicy flavors energize handcrafted ketchup, sauces, jams and more

Empowered Eating — Creating health and wellness harmony through a highly personalized, flexible approach

• Farro grain, blackberry and clove — Healthy ancient grain rediscovered with powerful hits of fruit and spice
• Market-fresh broccoli and dukkah (blend of cumin, coriander, sesame and nuts) — Satisfying flavors and textures, mixing unexpected varieties of broccoli with Middle Eastern spice blend

• Hidden Potential — A waste-not mentality, uncovering the fullest flavors from every last part of the ingredient

• Hearty meat cuts, plantain and stick cinnamon — A new take on meat and potatoes, these ingredients inspire creative approaches that unlock their full flavor potential
• Artichoke, paprika and hazelnut — Ingredients you thought you knew invite new explorations, unleashing their deliciously versatile starring qualities

• Global My Way — Discovering the unlimited flavor possibilities of global ingredients, beyond traditional roles in “ethnic” cuisines

• Japanese katsu sauce and oregano — Tangy flavors of barbecue and steak sauce create the next go-to condiment
• Anise and cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce) — Sweet, rich delight transports desserts and savory dishes to new places
