march asian flavors scoop column

Asian flavors are enjoying a continued spot at the top of the trends list, and are becoming even more ubiquitous on menus everywhere. Now is the perfect time to consider incorporating Asian flavors into unexpected dayparts, such as breakfast.

Incorporating new flavors into unexpected dayparts doesn’t have to be complicated. A “plus one” strategy can take a traditional breakfast burrito up a notch, such as adding a sauce or condiment. Incorporate an Asian vegetable like mukimame into a veggie scramble. Existing menu items are great candidates for reinventing into an Asian breakfast dish.

Chef Don predicts for trends to move more into lifestyles into 2023.

2023 is the year to lean into trends. 2022 was full of spicy, fusion, and Asian flavors. Learn more about how Chef Don predicts a deeper commitment to popular flavors and trends to turn into lifestyles this year.

1. Go all in

Consumers are looking for dishes that truly commit. “If you’re going to have a spicy chicken sandwich, make it spicy,” Chef Don advises anyone planning a menu. “Don’t worry about accommodating everyone. If you’re going to do it, do it. Go all in.”

2. "Mocktails" are here to stay

Low- and no-alcohol drinks have gained momentum as the world adjusts to a new normal and people are taking a new focus on indulging in healthier ways.

3. Plant-based as a lifestyle

We’re also seeing that meatless and plant-based diets have left the realm of trend and have become a lifestyle for many. Consumers aren’t just looking for dishes that are more vegetable heavy. They want dishes that are all in when it comes to being meat free. Or should we say all out?

4. Familiar comfort foods with a fun twist

Chef Don sees more familiar comfort foods, like loaded fries, nachos, wings, and pizza, being a vehicle for new bold flavors in an approachable setting. Experiment with combining ubiquitous sauces, like ranch, to make something that multiplies facets of flavors.

5. North African flavors

Savor’s always on the lookout for the hottest new trends. Right now we’re on the hunt for North African flavors to expand our portfolio. Keep your eyes open this year for new additions to our pantry that will bring the rich, aromatic flavors of North Africa to your menus alongside our high quality olives and olive oils.

A marinade has the power to tenderize proteins, ensure a large piece of meat is perfectly seasoned throughout, and amp up the flavors of most things. Juices provide big flavors that can be mixed and matched with any flavor you want, from sweet to savory, and can add essential acid to flavor profiles. Juices are also a fantastic ingredient for sauces and even hearty soups and stews. Savor’s new HPP juices will make your drinks shine at the bar and your recipes shine back of house.

Savor’s cold-pressed juice extractions are made from real fruit that was picked in season, freshly squeezed, and immediately went through a high pressure process. What does that mean? This process increases shelf life while maintaining purity of flavors, purity of color, and many nutrients that would be lost by exposing the juices to heat. Well what does THAT mean? They taste like they were fresh squeezed in house. Here are a few of the ways we’re having fun with these juices in our own kitchens.

1. Marinades

Marinades are power house ingredients. Use marinades to infuse proteins and vegetables with big flavor before you even cook them. Savor’s juices combine with seasonings and spices and each other to make a marinade that will make mouths water.

2. Smoothies

Non-alcoholic drinks are on a ton of menus right now, as people move away from alcohol but still want a special drink to sip. Smoothies fit a lot of dayparts, although they’re more often consumed in the mornings. Blend up these juices with fruits, yogurt, or nut milks for a tasty, better-for-you beverage.

3. Mini Cocktails

As people move toward more mindful drinking, they’re looking for ways to try a little of this and a little of that without too much alcohol. Flights of mini cocktails can offer ways for consumers to try a myriad of unique cocktails without committing to feeling poorly the next day. Showcase your mixologists’ skills with mini cocktails.

4. Mocktails

The taste of alcohol can cover lower-quality juice. But when you take the alcohol out of a cocktail, every ingredient needs to be on point to make a delightful mocktail. These juices are always made from fruit at the peak of freshness and are guaranteed to mix a delicious mocktail.

5. Sauces

Fruity sauces are a great complement to a variety of dishes, from a classic piccata to a sauce for a tropical take on a pork or seafood taco.

Bold. Flavorful. Light.

nov healthy eating column

Better-for-you and bland don’t go hand in hand. Global flavors offer light alternatives with big flavor. Ancient grains and riced cauliflower are nutrient power houses for bowls or for topping salads. Sauces and condiments can add a lot of wow without a lot of weight. And vegetables are still showing up as one of the most popular menu items. Mix up your healthier menus by trying different preparations, such as roasting, or incorporate healthy fats such as avocado in place of ingredients like mayonnaise. Keep customers coming back with new takes on your menu for the new year.

Spicy flavors are on-trend and easy to add to a variety of menus. Here are some ideas to get your spicy-forward inspiration flowing.

1. Spicy Pizza Toppings

Spice up your pizzas with some fun global ingredients. Add a layer of bomba sauce or giardiniera to your pizza under the cheese for a crunchy, vegetable-forward spicy surprise. Add jalapeños or pepperoncinis to add brine and spice with other classic toppings. Or try an unexpected twist by swapping out classic chili flakes with Korean chili flakes.


2. Spicy French Fries

Fries are the perfect vehicle for a dusting of spicy flavors. Seasonings are a great way to add flavor to French fries and leave space for layering of flavors with additional sauces and dips.

Pair Savor's chili lime seasoning with queso or a jalapeno crema. Aleppo adds a hint of subtle spicy smokiness. Mix and match flavors for spice and depth of flavor.


3. Spicy Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is a perfect dish for experimenting and having fun. The familiar, comforting combo of creamy cheese and well-cooked pasta is ready to deliver unexpected and unique flavors to adventurous diners.

Add depths of flavor and unique experiences in each bite by mixing up where you add flavors. Incorporate vegetables, sauces, or spreads into the dish itself, such as bomba sauce, giardiniera, or even jalapenos to the cheese sauce. Sprinkle crispy onions and a dusting of spicy seasoning on the top for crispy crunch and punches of flavor. Macaroni cheese is creamy and smooth and ready to be popped up with spicy global flavors.

Global flavors make share-worthy dips.

aug scoop 2022 column

The Savor team gets a lot of joy from sharing meals. The pandemic put a damper on our habits of sharing appetizers, entrees, desserts—basically everything. But as conditions improve we’ve started to share our joy again by sharing our food.

Dips are a great way to add unique global flavors to menus without adding complicated processes. Many dips are as simple as stirring the ingredients together and serving, especially if you use precooked, preseasoned, or premade ingredients. Savor’s vegetables pair perfectly with cheese as a creamy warm dip, as is with a crusty French bread, or mixed and matched to build a charcuterie board or three dip, three dippable small plate.

A dip is the perfect opportunity to add trends to menus—global flavors, vegetables, spice, and more—in a simple-to-execute format. Learn how some concepts are dipping into global flavors here.

Shareable, spreadable, to-go-able.
Help customers build global dips consumers will love.
