Summer of Flavour at Marks & Spencer is, they claim, all about bringing a host of fantastic ingredients and different flavour combinations to life.
Food developers have travelled the globe, taking in bars, restaurant and street food stalls in Chicago, San Francisco, Mexico City, Tel Aviv and beyond, to deliver the most exciting range of summer foods so far.
For those looking to surprise and delight friends and family, they’ve introduced new fruit flavours such as yuzu, calamansi and hibiscus, as well as some delicious savoury flavours too, like za’atar, achiote and ras el hanout
M&S say the aim this summer is to bring something new to classic favourites by using new cooking techniques, marinades and dressings. For example chicken wings have added zing thanks to the inclusion of Mexican tequila and sancho pepper and a classic cream cheese has been given a modern kick thanks to added wasabi.
They’ve also created some great new gluten free foods for summer, including a quiche lorraine and scotch egg as well as their first ever gluten free beers. For those looking for healthier options this summer, there are some new additions to the popular Eat Well range which include a range of savoury snacks featuring kale crisps, sesame seed flatbreads and seeded oatcakes, and a revamped selection of sushi with clean, authentic flavours.
Vegetarians and vegans are not forgotten with tasty meat-free options – so tasty that M&S put out the bold claim that they think they’ve created the best veggie burger ever. Made to a top secret recipe, it’s perfect served with salad in a warm pitta – so tasty and succulent, it’s claimed that even hardened carnivores will love it!
