Mark Crowe, Head of Menu Management, at Elior UK said: “The development team was keen to create two very different cuisines that introduce time-tested flavours and cooking techniques from around the globe.
“In Greece, gyros are one of the most popular street foods, with marinated meat cut from a rotating spit. We’re excited to offer a glimpse of Greek food with our flatbreads, colourful and zesty salads and more. We also wanted to showcase the traditional method of cooking in the Deep South – coating food (traditionally fish and chicken) in a Cajun seasoning and searing in a skillet until it is ‘blackened’ on both sides. We hope customers enjoy these adventurous Summer Flavours as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them!”
Elior’s development team continues to create new menus to introduce different, up-and-coming global cuisines into mainstream food culture. The Global Flavours range celebrates diverse tastes and ingredients from around the world, previously featuring Filipino street food, Mexican enchiladas and Venezuelan arepas.
