Here’s a simple tip to keep your menu fresh and seasonally focused. Instead of going straight to those classic seasonal dishes everyone expects, try doing the opposite. Pick a favorite from another season and reinvent it with ingredients that are fresh and in season right now.
This Soy-Glazed Red Grape Caponata with Butternut Squash, created by Chef Christian Hallowell is a perfect example. Caponata is a southern-Italian summertime classic. But Chef Christian reinvented it with two favorite fall ingredients, replacing the traditional eggplant with roasted butternut squash and grapes and adding a Curry-Miso Soy Dressing to tie it all together. Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce enhances the umami and rich, roasted flavors, and our Rice Vinegar adds a bright, fresh note to this new seasonal-makeover classic.
