Dinner Inspiration

from FlavorPrint

Home cooks can find more dinnertime inspiration with McCormick FlavorPrint, a new, free online tool rooted in more than 120 years of flavor expertise.

By analyzing user feedback to core flavor questions developed by McCormick sensory scientists, it identifies an individual’s unique flavor “fingerprint” — or FlavorPrint. The FlavorPrint is then matched to flavors in thousands of dishes to recommend recipes the user will love — even if they don’t know it yet.

“With FlavorPrint, trying a new recipe isn’t a guessing game — you know you’re going to like it before you even make it,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of McCormick. “It’s extremely intuitive, considering things like the flavors you love, ingredients you have on hand, preparation time, seasonality and degree of difficulty. Based on your unique FlavorPrint, you may get Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas, while another person may get Tuscan Pasta. It’s completely personalized to you.”

Accessible at McCormick.com on Smartphones, tablets and home computers, FlavorPrint can be used anywhere, from the kitchen to the grocery store.

 And, the more it’s used, the smarter it becomes, further tailoring its recipe recommendations.
