Irvine, CA (May 2008)—At the California Avocado Commission, we’re proud of the talented chefs across the country using flavorful Fresh Hand Grown in California Avocados in innovative dishes. Like all good things, we think their Fresh California Avocado creations are worth sharing and have added chef-developed menu applications to our foodservice recipe database.
At CaliforniaAvocado.com/foodservice, we’ve cataloged recipes from a variety of foodservice segments from white tablecloth to quick service. For example, Rob Wilson, Executive Chef of Restaurant 162 in Dana Point, California created California Avocado Tuna Sashimi, Diver Scallop, Pickled Watermelon, Avocado Yuzu Emulsion, a California-style seafood and avocado appetizer, Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax, Co-Founders and Co-CEOs of California Pizza Kitchen inspired California Club Pizza.
