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, it's time to throw a Spanish BBQ party? Simply head to the Red Palms Spanish Kitchen flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to bring the flavors of Spain to your backyard grill.
Flavor Profile: Spanish, Mediterranean, olive oil, olives, garlic, onion, tomato, bell peppers, sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar, oregano, rosemary, thyme, paprika, smoked paprika and saffron.
Inspiration: Spanish food is uncomplicated and down-to-earth while bursting with rich flavors and fresh ingredients. It is also very diverse due to geographical location and the influence of other cultures throughout the centuries. Spanish flavors work very well for a backyard cookout with great flavor.
Think Flamenco music playing in the background as you dine on simply seasoned grilled food with a wide variety of table sauces.
My Take: Grilled steak, pork and chicken with flavorful sauces swimming in olive oil as well as traditional sides and modern twists on traditional Spanish favorites designed specifically for cookouts.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Spanish BBQ party.
