McCormick released its Flavor Forecast 23rd Edition, naming its first-ever flavor of the year, Vietnamese x Cajun Style Seasoning. Over the last few weeks, we've been seeing a common theme among flavor trend reports for the coming year that outline consumers looking for bold flavors with a familiar feel.
The report reads, "Flavor Forecast 23rd Edition welcomes the comeback of full fats (Full Flavored Fats), French cuisine outside of the exclusive fine dining experience (Everyday French), and the multi-sensorial offerings of heat and flavor (Beyond Heat)."
The Vietnamese x Cajun Style Seasoning incorporates the influence of French cuisine with a prominence of heat throughout. The McCormick site reads, "A bright, complex reflection of the transformation and innovation in food and flavor taking place on a global level, Vietnamese x Cajun Style Seasoning is a playful blend of cayenne and paprika in classic Cajun tradition–and lemongrass, garlic, and black peppercorn, custom in Vietnamese recipes."
