Many of us have been lucky enough to have tasted complex flavors in our past travels and are now leaning into the experience of enjoying them in our own home-cooked creations. It’s become trendy to combine healthy ingredients in mainstream recipes and then fuse them with unique international flavors.
Foods travel the world, and these days, we’re fusing those worldly flavors with local and occasionally imported ingredients. We’re establishing a whole new world of exciting dishes right from our own kitchens. Dabble in some of the flavors here and enjoy mixing and matching to your palate’s content!
In this feature, when we speak of fusion foods, we’re capitalizing on flavors coupled with detoxifying regional ingredients, then enriching them with dashes of international flavors and cooking techniques to create even more interesting flavors.
Think cabbage to kimchi, hot spices with local vegetables, gnocchi made with nutrient-rich rutabaga. The possibilities are endless.
The health key is to use locally grown as much as you can, depending on the season. Move that local favorite to the global level with infused international flavors. It’s the next best thing to traveling there. Buy local. Cook international. It can’t get any easier—or fresher.
