Fuchs North America introduces the Family Recipes Collection, a new line of seasonings inspired by our team’s favorite family recipes. The collection’s four distinctly delicious seasonings honor traditions that have been passed down for generations, while offering mouthwatering takes on comfort food classics that consumers will totally crave.
This collection presents delicious seasoning blends ideal for desserts, spreads, stews and more. These items are also the starting point for food manufacturers to develop their own rich signature product offerings, with Fuchs’ culinary specialists at their side.
Fuch’s new Family Recipes Collection includes the following four seasoning blends:
• Tangy & Sour Schmear Seasoning
• Jambalaya Seasoning
• Lemon Square Seasoning
• Zucchini Bread Seasoning
“Nostalgic comfort foods are on the rise now more than ever, as consumers tend to reach for their childhood favorites in times of stress,” notes Shannon Cushen, Fuchs’ director of marketing. “At the same time, they’re still seeking out trendy and exciting new flavors to shake things up.”
She adds, “Our newest collection delivers on nostalgia, while providing new takes on old favorites. We transformed some of our team members’ family recipes into seasonings that deliver not only the nostalgia that consumers are seeking, but that also reflect many of the flavor trends we’re anticipating for 2021.”
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’ Family Recipes Collection features delicious new takes on classic comfort foods.
Scrumptious Stew Base
For Fuch’s Continuous Improvement Engineer Ian Stroube, part of the fun of family recipes is making them your own. Inspired by one of his parents’ favorite holiday recipes that he’s put his own twist on, the Jambalaya Seasoning in the new collection delivers craveable heat.
“This seasoning packs a lot of punch when it comes to flavor, making for a delicious meal,” explains Chef Howard Cantor, corporate executive chef at Fuchs North America.
Spectacular Spread Seasoning
The Tangy & Sour Schmear Seasoning based on one of Food Scientist Alyssa Chircus’ mother’s go-to holiday recipes is incredibly versatile. Put it on brisket, bread, or use it as a dip – the possibilities are endless! Better yet, its tangy flavor is exactly what consumers are craving these days.
Delicious Dessert Seasonings
Talk about taking an old favorite to the next level! For Dan Grazaitis, Director of Research & Development at Fuchs, it’s the nutmeg that really makes his family’s zucchini bread stand out. The Zucchini Bread Seasoning in our newest collection is inspired by his family’s “not-so-secret” recipe.
Classic doesn’t even begin to describe this Lemon Square Seasoning! Hitting all of the right tart, sour and sweet notes, this seasoning draws inspiration from a recipe that has been passed down for generations. Originally developed by Vice President of Sales & Technical Services Ken Wuestenfeld’s grandmother, this seasoning’s nostalgic roots and on-trend flavor profile are sure to be a hit with consumers.
