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.
So, you want to throw a Hawaiian BBQ party? Simply head to the Aloha Spirit Grub Hut flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to transport you to the Hawaiian Islands through food.
Flavor Profile: Pineapple, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, pork and chicken.
Inspiration: The Hawaiian Islands are a melting pot of flavors, with special emphasis on Asian influences. As a result, there are some delicious flavors and food combinations that are sure to please.
Think tiki torches and hula dancers as you dine on grilled fare with Hawaiian inspired flavors.
My Take: Grilled meats, especially pork and chicken, flavored with Asian inspired sauces as well as classic Hawaiian side dishes.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Hawaiian BBQ party.
Here is some Hawaiian music to transport you to the Islands and get you thinking about throwing a Hawaiian BBQ in your own backyard.
Here are views of the Hawaiian landscape taken by drone.
I might not be able to provide stunning views like this. However, you certainly can please your guests with a Hawaiian inspired BBQ menu.
Finally, the inspiration would not be complete without some Polynesian Dancing at a Luau.
