Sunkist Growers Pair With Cindy Pawlcyn to Showcase Citrus at PMA Foodservice
MONTEREY, CA – Now more than ever, there are incredible opportunities for foodservice operators to embrace produce as consumer demand for high-quality, fresh menu options continues to soar. Sunkist is highlighting the versatility of fresh citrus at this year's PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo July 28-30 in Monterey to educate and inspire the foodservice industry with the bright colors and flavors of citrus.
“Consumers are increasingly craving fresh, innovative flavors when dining out,” said Joan Wickham, Director of Communications. “Sunkist is highlighting how citrus can zest up drinks and dishes, sweet and savory, at this year’s PMA Foodservice conference.”
Visitors to the Sunkist booth will be able to sample two delicious dishes from James Beard Award-winning chef, Cindy Pawlcyn. The flavors of Sunkist Valencia orange, lime, and grapefruit shine in a Peruvian-inspired San Francisco Bay halibut ceviche with toasted Inca corn nuts, avocado, and red Chile peppers. On the sweeter side, Chef Pawlcyn will also serve a mouthwatering candied orange and brioche bread pudding with salted orange caramel sauce that incorporates fresh and candied orange peels. These recipes highlight the true versatility of citrus as an ingredient—from flesh to peel.
Sunkist offers over 40 varieties of fresh citrus throughout the year, including specialties and organics. This portfolio provides chefs with a wide array of seasonal flavors to inspire creativity and innovation on the menu.
