(Family Features) From international food trucks taking over city streets to kitchen drawers stuffed with ethnic takeout menus, Americans simply can't get enough global flavor. This hot trend is making its way into everyday cuisine as home cooks of all skill levels get excited to try something new in the kitchen.
"A delicious, internationally-inspired meal is as simple as pairing a few ingredients that are already found in your kitchen with unique flavors from around the world," said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. "For example, the Caribbean Grilled Steak brings the spirit of the islands home with the perfect combination of garlic, onion, cumin, oregano and red pepper."
To help make trying these and other new flavors easy, McCormick has just launched its second collection of Recipe Inspirations - World Flavors. Each packet contains six pre-measured spices and herbs, along with a recipe card on the back that can be filed for future use. The new varieties make experiencing favorite dishes from exotic locales - like Asia, Tuscany, and India - simple and accessible.
With a few fresh, healthy ingredients, minimal prep and less than 30 minutes of cook time, world flavors are a snap to enjoy. Inspired to try more globetrotting favorites? Visit www.mccormick.com to find ideas and recipes.
