DOLE Fruit Pairings
Dole is committed to keeping ahead of the curve on food industry trends and on top of menu innovations. With these goals in mind, Dole created its annual DOLE Fruit Pairings—targeted fruit-forward and flavorful combinations that resonate with chefs and product developers, and can transform DOLE Fruit Products into profitable menu signatures.
The 2013 Dole Fruit pairings focuses on Central and South America. The DOLE 2013 Latin Fruit Pairings explore flavors and ingredients from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Argentina and Chile and offer exciting variations on each country’s specialties. For example, the National Restaurant Association’s 2013 “What’s Hot” survey, chefs from across the country ranked ethnic-inspired breakfast items as a top trend in their operations. The DOLE 2013 Latin Fruit Pairings delivers tasty breakfast ideas from south of the border. Click on these links for our Apple-Raisin Sopapillas and Sweet and Savory Empanadas recipes.
In 2012, Dole gave the globe a spin facing east. The Dole Asian Fruit Pairings demonstrate that fruit’s contribution to global cuisine isn’t limited to the dessert, beverage and snack categories.
For traditional fruit pairings, such as Fruit and Smoke or Peach and Spinach, check out Dole’s fruit pairings from 2010 and 2011.
Dole is proud of the work they put behind every fruit they bring to market. To ensure that chefs and foodservice operators fully appreciate the quality of the fruit and the cuisine they prepare, Dole sponsored a chef education trip to expand their knowledge of Thai cuisine with hands-on training with local chefs.
The tour included a stop at the Dole Pineapple plantation and processing plant the Dole Thai team outlining the production and quality assurance guidelines implicit in the DOLE brand guarantee. The hands-on day at two culinary schools helped chefs incorporate more fruit in menus, new product development, and customizing Thai-influenced recipes for their operations.
