Deli: Ethnic trends

Many variations of curry mixes exist, but they usually consist of spice
mixes that include cumin, ginger, coriander, turmeric and sometimes
chilies among other spices and seeds, Crain says. Garam masala is a
composition of spices and often differs geographically. Garam masala
may contain a mixture of cumin, black pepper, coriander, cardamom,
cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron, fennel and fenugreek seed, he said.
Schaefer mentioned turmeric. The curcumin within turmeric has
been linked to anti-inflammatory benefits.
"It has a lot of health benefits, and I think people are looking at their
food to be a little more functional as well as flavorful," Schaefer says of
turmeric. "Turmeric seems to be the spice of choice right now or the
most popular spice in the room, so to speak."
Turmeric initially brings a bitter taste that is followed by sweetness
and then a ginger quality, he says.
More regional approaches to Indian flavors are taking place since the
country has 29 states, says John Stephanian, director of culinary development for ADM Nutrition.
"One of my favorite foods right now, dosa, hails from the South India
region and is beginning to pop up all over the food world," he says.
"Dosa is a style of crepe that is made with a combination of rice, lentils,
black gram, fenugreek and more."

"Part of the citrus family, the yuzu's flavor
is similar to a grapefruit but with notes of
sweet mandarin orange," Lane says. "Yuzu
could be used much in the same way as
other citrus fruits: in desserts like cheesecakes or custards, in savory sauces similar
to sweet and sour, and mixed with honey
and tea for a global take on Arnold Palmer (a
tea and lemonade drink)."
Yucatecan food and flavors are migrating
throughout America as well.
"Yucatecan cuisine is classically Latin
American but with distinct influences from
Europe, the Middle East and the Caribbean,"
Lane says. "The flavors associated with
the region are a mix of the familiar and the
unfamiliar. Spices like oregano and cumin
abound as well as habanero chilies. However, there are other flavors like
achiote, sour orange and epazote that may be a new experience for the
casual diner.
"Meat rubs and processed meats work well with many of these flavors
in combination to recreate authentic Mexican dishes. Sour orange could
be part of a sparkling beverage build or even used in a sauce instead of
lemon or lime."
Sumac, often found in Syrian dishes, is expanding beyond the
Middle East.
"Sumac is becoming increasingly popular, and personally I've been
using it in a lot of my dishes," Stephanian says. "Syrian cuisine is becoming more prevalent, and the slightly, sweet, slightly savory combinations
of flavor from sumac is unmistakable."
Salads and juices are potential applications, he says.
"Sumac is another well-known Middle Eastern flavor profile," Lane
says. "Its bright citrusy profile works well anywhere you'd use citrus zest
but can also be paired with other ingredients for marinades for rubs for
meats. It also works well on its own as a topping for roasted vegetables
to balance the smokiness."

Exploring other regions
Other ethnic flavors are becoming more regionally specific, too.
Hokkaido, an island in Japan, is known for uni (Japanese for sea
urchin), which has caught on in high-end restaurants in the United
States, Lane says.
"The flavor has been described as ocean-like but not fishy," he says.
"Uni works very well in savory dishes like pasta due to its delicate savory
flavor. It can be mixed with cream, Parmesan and black pepper for a
decadent take on cacio e pepe (a pasta dish), for example."
The city of Kyoto in Japan is known for yuzu, which originally was
brought into the country by way of the Korean peninsula.
