Mediterranean and Middle Eastern condiments and spices are now right at home in kitchens across the country. Sesame seeds and tahini, a ground sesame paste, add sophisticated flavor to everything from meats and vegetables to cookies and cakes. For instance, top roasted Private Selection Frozen Green Beans with creamy, toasty tahini and a sprinkle of Private Selection Sesame Seeds for visual appeal.
Traditionally sweet dishes are getting a savory makeover. Ingredients like vanilla and sugar are being replaced with flavorful herbs and cheeses. Our take is a reimagined French toast featuring thick slices of rustic Private Selection Artisan Bread dipped in a mixture of egg, thyme and Parmesan. It’s pan-fried to a golden brown, then topped with sautéed Private Selection Gourmet Blend Mushrooms and a drizzle of olive oil.
Few things taste better than a cup of coffee made with freshly ground beans and the perfect water-to-coffee ratio. That’s just one of the reasons pour-over coffee is gaining in popularity. Once reserved only for baristas, this method is finding its way into the kitchens of java lovers everywhere. The process, which has an almost meditative quality, involves pouring hot water over ground coffee and letting gravity do its work to produce a rich, flavorful brew.
Small batch, craft flavors are here to stay—particularly when it comes to new drink offerings. Private Selection™ Handcrafted Artisan Sodas offer unique varieties that delight the palate. From Bourbon Barrel Cola and decadent Irish Cream to bright and complex Hopped Grapefruit Cream Soda, each one is delicious served chilled, straight out of the bottle, or in any drink creations you can dream up—like pouring Huckleberry Hibiscus Cream Soda over generous scoops of creamy Private Selection Crushed Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
