Irvine, CA (February 2010) — “Simplicity and back to basics” ranked in the Top 20
Trends in the National Restaurant Association “What’s Hot in 2010” survey* of 1,800 American Culinary Federation chefs, along with customer-driven preferences for locally grown produce and “farm/estate-branded ingredients.” Using Fresh Hand Grown in California Avocados, it’s easy for operators to craft time-honored dishes with signature flair and a farm-to-table pedigree. Starting with Avocado Potato Salad or Avocado-Studded Macaroni and Cheese, try “greening” the menu with favorite comfort foods enhanced with the nutty taste, rich texture and natural appeal of Fresh California Avocados.
From March through September, foodservice operators can rely on California Avocado growers and packers to deliver quality fruit that’s ripe, flavorful and ready to serve.
