Comfort Food with a Twist still on Trend for Spring 2016
Consider that most diners enjoy food that is fun, interesting & of course irresistibly delicious. This season, we continue to emphasize modern twists on presentation & flavor, while savoring the comfort in traditional foods. When deciding on your menu, consider your environment and/or venue, seasonal, fresh ingredients, and bringing life to a classic dish with an unexpected element of surprise. A diner’s experience is heavily tied to what they see on the plate, “That’s a masterpiece when you can get the balance between taste and aesthetics.” Some of our favorite “ta da” moments were experienced with some of these classics with a twist.
