You go, grill!

Prepping for summer’s seductive sizzle

— Global spice leader and flavor forecaster, McCormick®, challenges home chefs each year to shake up their pantries with unique and emerging trends for grilling season. Likewise, McCormick develops new products to add to its Grill Mates product line, making taste-trendiness less of a chore to achieve for nine-to-fivers or busy Moms and Dads.

This year’s Grill Mates® & Lawry’s® Flavor Forecast 2013 heats up with customized condiments (ketchup lovers say, ‘Amen!’), five-minute marinades, charred fruit beverages and accompaniments for grilled breads.

“Now everyone can discover a few easy, new tricks to bring these tasty and trendy flavors to their outdoor meals,” said Chef Mark Garcia of the McCormick Kitchens. “For example, grilling lemons before adding to lemonade imparts a smoky flavor to a classic summer beverage. And using pecan wood chips on the grill brings a sweet, nutty intensity to chicken, pork or vegetables and pairs beautifully with a molasses bacon seasoning.”
