Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.
For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.
For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.
Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.
Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.
When you want to throw a Chinese BBQ, simply head to the Dancing Buddha Chinese Bistro flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to bring the great flavors of your favorite Chinese take-out right to your backyard.
Flavor Profile: Soy sauce, garlic, ginger, red chili flakes, 5 spice seasoning, sesame oil, sesame seeds, green onion, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and vinegar.
Inspiration: Classic Chinese take-out dishes. Americanized Chinese food is known for its combination of sweet, sour and spicy flavors. One of the most recognizable flavor profiles is about to hit your next cookout.
Think of your favorite Chinese take-out flavors applied to the grill. Same great flavors, but without all the chopping and no wok needed.
My take: Chinese spiced and grilled beef, pork and chicken with Chinese inspired sauces, condiments and sides.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Chinese BBQ party.
When you think of Chinese food, you probably don’t think about grilled food. But just like every country in the world, the Chinese grill. Check out this video of some Chinese grilled street food.
