Chef Kelli Welby of Shamrock Foods Company
I think that the ever-changing consumer palate is looking for something familiar, but with bold touches. I believe that matzo ball soup will be coming back with modern additions. This is a hearty memory-inducing dish with a flavor profile that generates a love for simplicity done well. Chicken and dumplings is another one of my favorite comfort recipes that could be adapted—say with vegan ingredients or Mexican flavorings.
Vegans are a growing part of the foodie community. Eggplant adovada street tacos are by far my favorite vegan dish. It consists of eggplant braised in red chile sauce, then placed in a jicama shell with pickled onions, avocado puree, and topped with micro cilantro. It can satisfy anyone’s palate, vegan, vegetarian, or carnivore.
