Australia’s appetite for authentic global flavours is continuing to grow. With Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisines sitting in the top influences on Modern Australian menus; Nestlé Professional is here to inspire you with their Flavours of the World range.

  • MEDITERRANEAN – the BUITONI range of finished tomato sauces have been crafted by the CHEF team at Casa BUITONI in the Tuscan countryside using handpicked tomatoes – bringing the Mediterranean to your menu.
  • ASIAN – the MAGGI Taste of Asia & HAOJI ranges of sauces, pastes and oils are inspired by the streets of Asia. Developed from authentic Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese, Sichuan, Malaysian and Kashmiri recipes, allowing for fierce Asian fusion.
  • AMERICAN – the MAGGI Taste of Americas was launched as American and Mexican food have exploded across Australian menus and are here to stay!

As we become ever more culturally diverse as a nation, diners are more and more favouring fusion-based dishes, stepping out of their comfort zone and wanting to try something new.

Whether that’s putting a spin on a menu classic that we all know and love, or pushing the boundaries by combining two or more cuisines together on the one plate. The key to creating winning fusion dishes is not being shy to integrate interesting, new flavours on your menu – but also knowing your customer and their palate in terms of how far to take it.

“Modern Australian menus are about fusion and combining many flavours on the one plate.  What I love most about this range is the versatility and how easily they can be incorporated across menus”  says Mark Clayton, executive chef, Nestlé Professional.
