Here at CulinAero, we strive to include seasonal ingredients in our meal offerings.

Why, you ask? For a handful of important reasons, like…

 

THE FLAVOR

Foods picked at their peak tend to taste better. That’s a hard one to ignore, because we aim to serve our guests the best tasting food!

 

THE NUTRIENTS

Produce starts losing its nutrients after being picked. The longer the produce takes to arrive at the store, the more nutrients are at risk of disappearing. We want our meals to be not only delicious, but also as nutritious as possible.

 

THE SAVINGS

Lastly, we have a bonus tip for you to use during your own grocery shopping trips: buying seasonal ingredients is kind to your wallet, and that’s because it is more costly to transport produce from overseas to your local store than it is from somewhere close by. That said, when you eat fresh foods that are in season, you don’t pay as much because there are little to no transportation costs involved!

 

Now that we’ve captured your interest in buying and consuming seasonal ingredients (*wink*), here’s a look what’s peaking in every season:
