INSPIRED BY THE STREETS OF ASIA FOR CHEFS OF AUSTRALIA

Australia’s appetite for authentic on-trend Asian flavours is continuing to grow. As we become ever more culturally diverse as a nation, changing tastes in food are reflecting back a willingness from diners to experiment with new taste sensations and culinary experiences.

By way of current menu influences, ethnic fusion ranks at an attention grabbing 43% – It’s time to get menu creative with modern Australian, Asian inspired fusion dishes. Whether that’s putting a spin on a menu classic or pushing the envelope a bit more, with bold flavour combinations and locally sourced seasonal produce.

MAGGI offer a new authentic Taste of Asia range of sauces and pastes that put on-trend specialties within easy reach, with the ability to create marinades, dipping sauces, stir-fry sauce, and other flavour builders.

“The Korean BBQ sauce is a standout for me. It has fermented soy beans in it that gives it just the right strong, salty kick and a really authentic umami taste. The sesame oil also makes it quite fragrant and the dehydrated chilli flakes add just the right spicy balance. All up it’s a real Asian flavour and I don’t need to add any more ingredients to balance out the sauce.” – Adelene Stahnke, Co-Owner, Bang Street Food.

The key to creating a winning Asian fusion offering is not being shy to integrate interesting new flavours into your menu – but also knowing your customer and their palate in terms of how far to take it.

At the end of the day, the ‘let’s not try to be something we’re not’ saying holds true. It’s not a case of trying to go up against dead-set Asian cuisine. It’s about doing what you do best, with a twist that your customers will love.
