McCormick® Flavor Forecast® 2013 Reveals Flavor Trends Expected To Drive Global Innovation In Food

"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 BBQ 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 & Passion Fruit – An intensely indulgent combo that delights all the senses
    • Black Rum, Charred Orange & 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 & Molasses – Rustic and comforting, this combo brings natural goodness to every meal of the day
    • Smoked Tomato, Rosemary, Chile Peppers & 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 & Clove – Healthy ancient grain rediscovered with powerful hits of fruit and spice
    • Market-Fresh Broccoli & 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 & Stick Cinnamon – A new take on meat and potatoes, these ingredients inspire creative approaches that unlock their full flavor potential
    • Artichoke, Paprika & 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 & Oregano – Tangy flavors of BBQ and steak sauce create the next go-to condiment
    • Anise & Cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce) – Sweet, rich delight transports desserts and savory dishes to new places
