Jan. 30, 2013 - Chef Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill and Topolobampo in Chicago has seen trends emerge from influential cultures across the globe and wants Americans to integrate these trends into their meals at home. To help educate home cooks, Chef Bayless has partnered with Sargento Cheese to create his "Top Flavor and Food Trends for 2013."
"It's easier than most think to integrate flavor into your favorite dishes. And cheese is welcoming to all kinds of flavor," said Chef Bayless. "Whether its barbecue tacos topped with Cheddar cheese, or the bold use of bitter greens like sorrel and dandelions, I expect these foods and flavors to gain popularity and inspire everyday cooks."FLAVOR AND FOOD TRENDS FOR 2013
