Get Inspired With a New Spice Concept from McCormick Canada

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - For hectic Canadian families wanting healthy, delicious and budget conscious home-cooked meals, McCormick Canada has launched the innovative Club House Recipe Inspirations line of spices and recipes.

The product line features six fast and easy to prepare recipes that include six pre-measured spices in clear plastic blister packs with a collectible recipe card. Each new flavour makes it easy to create menu inspired dishes that feature a "twist on the familiar."

Each product contains at least one lesser-known spice to try and at least one of the 10 Super Spices to provide added value to the consumer. The Super Spices are rich in antioxidants, as well as phytonutrients, such as carotenoids, flavonoids and other phenolics. These spices possess health-promoting properties beyond being great antioxidants.

With the new Club House Recipe Inspirations, consumers get to experiment with new herbs and spices that they may not have readily available at home. It's a low risk opportunity to get more familiar with new spices that can take home-prepared meals to the next level. All the other ingredients, such as proteins and vegetables needed for the recipes are clearly listed on the back of the package for easy shopping and preparation. And the recipe cards are collectible, so they can be used again and again. 

All the recipes take just 15 minutes of prep time and cook in about 45 minutes. Suggested retail is $1.99 and they are found in the spice aisle of major grocery stores across Canada.

"These menu-inspired meals are easy for every cook to prepare, whether they are inexperienced or an expert and especially under time pressure after getting home from work," says Michael Cloutier, C.C.C., McCormick Canada's Executive Chef. "All of these recipes provide healthful flavours and spices, with distinctive combinations for a memorable food experience, and are designed to be on the table from start to finish in under 60 minutes."

"Club House Recipe Inspirations provide new spice combinations and recipes to create great new meal ideas," adds Cloutier. "The wonderfully aromatic rosemary is a perfect match for roasted chicken and potatoes in the Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Potatoes dish. Traditional lasagna gets a flavourful twist with cumin, garlic and oregano with the Mexican Lasagna recipe. The Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas create an anytime fiesta with delicious south-of-the-border spices and herbs, chicken and fresh vegetables. The Pasta Primavera is a restaurant favourite with fresh Italian flavours like minced garlic, onion and dill weed. The Cran-Apple and Sage Pork Chop dish is enhanced with a unique combination of cranberries, apples and sage in this great family favourite dish. And the Asian Sesame Salmon recipe is an inspired salmon dish that is sure to impress with sesame seeds, garlic and ginger notes."
