‘Surprising combinations’ feature on Comax Flavors’ 2012 trends list


Comax Flavors has released its predictions for 2012 flavor combination trends under four categories: Ethnic Fusion, Pickled Paradise, Wine Whimsy and Regional Reverie.

Based on its Culinary Trend Exchange data gathered from flavor experts during 2011, Comax said: “These one-of-a-kind melds bring pizzazz to the world of flavors, introducing the tongue-tickling mingling of exotic flavors, fruits and spices, infused with seductive notes reminiscent of faraway lands.”


Ethnic Fusion includes jasmine coconut, curry mole, Asian taco and fiery mango pineapple chutney.


Pickled Paradise takes inspiration from Asian pickling, the company said, with pickled mango, pickled jalapeno, kimchi, pickled watermelon and pickled ginger with wasabi.


Wine Whimsy includes Japanese plum wine, Italian muscato wine, sauvignon blanc wine, and Spanish madeira wine.


And within the Regional Reverie category are herbs of Provence, lemon parsley, Thai basil or garlic basil, and ginger rosemary.
