Timely Trends For Easter

One of the busiest foodservice holidays of the year is Easter—a time of religious celebration as well as the celebration of seasonal spring flavors. Get prepared with a menu packed with vibrant, healthy produce-focused dishes that will boost social media shares and increase customer traffic.

  • Think symbolism. Eggs, lamb, and rabbit all evoke nostalgic cravings for this holiday’s classic ingredients. Modify traditional recipes by creating vegetable-focused dishes that use these hallmarks as garnishes, like green salads with beet-dyed egg halves, asparagus omelets and frittatas with ground lamb, or bunny-faced strawberry hotcakes.
  • Get colorful. Highlight the bright hues of delicious, gorgeous fruits and vegetables like watermelon radishes, baby carrots, baby beets, mangoes, berries, citrus, and leafy greens.
  • Focus on wellness. Interesting salads, produce-based small plates, and fruit-forward mocktails will deliver the nutritious, yet delicious dishes to this ever-growing segment of customers.
  • Splurge a little! Beautiful, fruity desserts can satisfy the sweet-tooth customers while including texture, color, and flavor. Plump up those carrot cakes, pile pavlovas with mango and passion fruit, and stuff crepes with every type of berry!

Diners are increasingly hyper-focused on high-protein and plant-based foods. Alongside all of the new-fangled, lab-based, cell-cultured options out there is the humble bean. A staple food for millenia, beans are being re-examined as a healthy, versatile ingredient worthy of menu inclusion.

  • Retro and heirloom recipes—like Southern succotash, French cassoulet, and Cajun red beans and rice—fit the bill for those in search of authenticity.
  • Most world cuisines incorporate some type of bean in their classic dishes. Think feijoada in Brazil, black beans and rice with plantains in Puerto Rico, and garbanzo beans in Israel. Modern interpretations of these recipes are packed with produce and herbs.
  • The creamy texture of mung beans is proving an ideal substitute for those that are eliminating soy from their diets.
