Kitchenware News & Housewares Review Show Daily 5 1 Monday, March 4, 2019 Manitou Trading Company Brings Top Food Trends to Consumer Kitchens Authentic global flavors are a top food trend for 2019, according to recent mar- ket research and the industry's top con- sumer-facing publications. Thanks to social media, the popularity of globally- inspired street food and a rise in the num- ber of Americans traveling international- ly, consumers are eager to try authentic, regionally-specific dishes and cuisines.

"Our Global Spice Blends and Sauce Starters are crafted to be approachable, easy-to- use and authentic. They're developed with the busy home cook in mind." There are two new product lines inspired by trending global flavors. Mexican Mole Sauce Starters are gluten- and dairy-free sauce starters that require only water and a few minutes to pre- pare. The four fla- vors include: Oaxacan Mole Negro: One of the seven traditional moles of Oaxaca, Mexico, Mole Negro Sauce Starter features a rich blend of spicy dried chiles, ground almonds, warm and savory spices, and plenty of bittersweet dark chocolate. Oaxacan Mole Amarillo: Mole Amarillo takes its name from aji amarillo, the hot yellow chile pepper that gives the sauce its unique color and flavor. A delicate blend of tomato, onion, garlic, herbs and chiles, Mole Amarillo is delicious with a wide array of proteins. Pipian Mole Verde: Pipian is the Spanish word for "pumpkin seed," a key element in this bright, aromatic Mole Verde Sauce Starter brimming with flavor thanks to a blend of mild green chiles, onion, garlic, spices and nutty ground hemp seeds. Manchamanteles Chile- Fruit Mole: This sweet, spicy mole gets its heat from a blend of chiles and its sweetness from fruity pineapple. Tomato, savory aromatics, herbs and a hint of cin- namon round out the sauce's flavor while ground almonds a creamy, satisfying tex- ture. There are also four new additions to Manitou's Global Spice Blends line, each inspired by a different African dish. All new products are available online in 2019.
