crabskewerSummer officially begins mid-June, although for most of us, Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff. And what does Memorial Day mean – months of great food! Not to mention, sun, fun, and beaches.

The thing is, everyone is on-the-go during the summer, so light, sharable, finger food is most sought-after; think “street food” and food truck fare. While grilled burgers, hot dogs, and ribs are summer staples, they’re boring. But, you can’t argue with tradition, right? Wrong!

This summer, introduce a few new mainstays to your menu, using the protein of the sea.  

King & Prince has introduced their new Sensations® seafood line; a top-quality, sustainably sourced shellfish and premium seafood line that can be transformed into creative and unique portable, sharable edibles – the drivers of the latest nationwide food trend.

According to a recent King & Prince whitepaper, the trends of communal tables and small plates have fueled the 2017 trend of shareable meals. Further, 79% of customers lobsterpoutineorder shareable meals, making it easier to try multiple menu items at once.

If you’re ready to launch your food truck (not that it’s necessary), are taking part in summer food festivals, or simply looking excite the palates of your customers, King & Prince has a great, money-saving rebate on their Sensations® line.

President Logo with tagline RED 72DPIBrie, one of the most renowned French cheeses in the world, is versatile and packed with intense flavor, especially those crafted by Président Cheese.

With its oozy soft interior and tasty rind, some cheese lovers prefer to eat Brie as is, with crackers, apples, or use it as an ingredient in a recipe. But, pairing cheese with other flavors can go so much further.  

Oftentimes, cheese is thought best to be paired with wine, while foods such as, nuts, starches, proteins, and vegetables are sometimes an afterthought. But food can heighten anyone’s experience with his or her favorite cheese – in this case, Brie. 

When pairing foods with cheese, the goal should be to highlight, equally, both elements. In an ideal world, the flavors should accentuate rather than overpower the cheese itself. Likewise, cheeses shouldn't overwhelm what you choose as accompaniments.

If you have some Brie on hand and want to step out of your comfort zone, check out Président Cheese’s Brie Pairing chart below and live a little. Your customers will thank you!
