TORONTO, ON, June 23, 2014 – To help Canadians ‘grain momentum’ with their summer entertaining, Campbell Canada has joined culinary forces with top North American food blogger Kelsey Brown of Happyolks.com to declare this the ‘summer of super grains.’ Together, Campbell Canada and Kelsey are releasing seven delicious recipes that focus on seasonal produce, an eclectic mix of healthy super grains, and her essential flavour-boosting pantry item – Campbell’s® Ready to Use Broths.
|“Chefs often like to use ingredients such as cream and butter to elevate their dishes,” says Kelsey. “However, in the warm summer months, when we’re looking for lighter fare, I like to use Campbell’s broth because it adds a boost of flavour yet keeps dishes, like grains, light tasting and refreshing.”|
Kelsey’s summer grain creations reflect her whimsical style of mixing new, exciting flavours into classic pairings. Each recipe starts with Campbell’s Vegetable or 30% Less Sodium chicken or beef broths as the foundation to infuse flavour into super grains like pearl barley and farro. She then adds some creative flare with fresh summer produce and ingredients like parmesan, apricot, jalapeño and mint to give each recipe its own exciting flavour profile.
“More and more Canadians are cooking with grains in the summer and turning to broth to help enhance flavour,” says Moya Brown, Senior Marketing Director, Campbell Canada. “Campbell’s broths are prepared right here in Canada using quality ingredients, and with all natural flavours and no artificial colours, it’s easy to see why Campbell’s is the number one selling broth in Canada.”
You can find the all of Kelsey’s recipes at www.cookwithcampbells.ca. Recipes include:
“My goal with these recipes was to show Canadians how easy it is to switch things up for summer: just grab your favourite broth, simmer with a healthy grain, and top it off with what’s in your garden or favourite local fresh ingredients,” says Kelsey. “How easy, and delicious, is that!?”
Campbell Canada is calling home chefs from across the country to join them in celebrating ‘the summer of super grains’ by recreating one of Kelsey’s recipes and uploading a photo to facebook.com/CampbellCanada for a chance to win a $1,000 culinary shopping spree, limited edition Campbell’s swag and a year’s supply of Campbell’s broth.
