Fuchs North America introduces “The Braising Box,” a new line of flavors that translate popular cooking methods into craveable flavors. The collection’s four seasonings are inspired by the latest trends in culinary techniques and offer complex flavors that are sure to delight consumers of all ages.
This collection presents delicious seasoning blends ideal for seafood, proteins and desserts. These items also are the starting point for food manufacturers and foodservice establishments to develop their own rich signature product offerings, with Fuchs’ culinary specialists at their side.
The New Collection
The Braising Box includes the following four seasoning blends and bases:
• Grilled Cobbler Seasoning
• Osso Buco Seasoning
• Smoky Brisket 2.0 Seasoning
• Szechuan Ginger Broth Base
“Consumers want their food to tell a story, and they also have been pushing for more complex flavors,” says Shannon Cushen, Fuchs’ director of marketing. “As a result, call-outs to specific cooking methods and the flavors that they evoke have been growing rapidly across categories. Think ‘grilled,’ ‘smoky’ and ‘roasted’ flavors. Our newest collection brings cooking method call-outs and culinary techniques to life with delicious seasonings that offer depth and complexity – exactly what consumers are craving.
Fuchs helps food companies make sense of the trends and tap into where the culinary energy is strongest. In this spirit, each of the items that make up Fuchs’ The Braising Box features innovative seasonings that are tailored specifically to meet the flavor needs of food manufacturers.
Palatable Protein Seasonings
Crafted by Fuchs’ Corporate Executive Chef Howard Cantor, each seasoning in this collection is designed to deliver mouthwatering flavor, inspired by culinary trends. For example, Fuchs’ Smoky Brisket 2.0 Seasoning is a new take on the craveable tastes of Texas Barbeque.
“This isn’t your average brisket,” says Cantor. “We’ve taken an already trendy dish but ramped up the flavor with smoky notes for complexity. This seasoning is a crowd pleaser, for sure.
Nothing says classic quite like our Osso Buco Seasoning (pictured), which is elevated with roasted notes and a savory blend of herbs and spices.
“Perfect for cooler months, this seasoning can give just about any protein comfort food status,” Cantor adds.
Craveable Cobbler Seasoning
Fuchs’ Grilled Cobbler Seasoning is a modern take on a traditional dessert. Its sweetness is perfectly balanced with smoky grilled notes, which delivers a flavor profile that has a “wow-factor.”
Scrumptious Broth Base
A match made in heaven for seafood of all types, the Szechuan Ginger Broth Base in our new collection is packed full of complex flavor. Not only does this seasoning feature a trendy Asian-inspired flavor profile, but it also serves up serious versatility – use it as a poaching liquid for fish, or as a broth for a seafood stew.
