They inspire my own cooking, and inspire me to bring these amazing foods and flavours to more Canadian tables." - Sylvie Rochette Traditional spices and seasonings are at the heart of great global cuisine. Flavourful and endlessly diverse, authentic spice blends also make healthy, delicious homemade meals that much quicker tocreate. That frees up more time around the table to eat, entertain and connect with family and friends.For 2011, we've been inspired by Sylvie's travels and the world of flavours you can enjoy right at home with Epicure's Global PantryT.We're especially inspired by the foods and food cultures of Mexico and Latin America: fresh, basic ingredients simply prepared, yet richly spiced and full of life in both flavour and serving style. Friends and family chat and laugh around the kitchen table, topping each freshly made tortilla with seasoned meats and fresh vegetables. With Epicure's new Latin-inspired products, it's easy to make everyone's Mexican restaurant favourites at home, and enjoy an authentic Mexican fiesta any night of the week.Versatile turquoise is the new colour trend in kitchenware. We love the festive, Latin-American touch our new turquoise Baker and Mini Baker bring to a colourfully laid table, just as we love the clean, country look of turquoise and white porcelain table settings. The modern look of turquoise with our bistro-style Mini Appetizer Plates, stainless-steel Appetizer Forks, Demitasse Spoons, and sparkling Verrines is a welcome addition to any table.We are passionate about supporting the health of Canadians and their communities with versatile, value-added products that make good food as fun to share as it is to prepare. Each year, wewelcome new Canadian entrepreneurs to the Epicure family who share our vision. Together, we're bringing easy, healthful meals to more tables and connecting Canadians to our larger human family by discovering amazing global cuisine at home. From our table to yours, bon appétit!
