Boston Market Shows Its Italian Side

By

Boston Market has announced its new line of menu items: Tuscan Herb Rotisserie Chicken, Four-Cheese Cavatappi, Garlic Spinach, and Classic Minestrone Soup. These dishes are part of Boston Market’s plans to revamp its menu, incorporating new chef-inspired items.

‘The Italian culture is known for its emphasis on family and food, which was terrific inspiration and a natural fit for Boston Market,’ said Judy Cantrell, Boston Market chief brand officer. ‘We want to offer the best of both worlds – bringing the family together by taking the time and legwork out of meal prep, while still serving up gourmet, wholesome meals that taste homemade.’

Boston Market’s strategy for 2008 is to create innovative dishes with the help of world-class chefs. Drawing on ethnic tastes and introducing new flavors and to American favorites, Boston Market chefs are reinventing the classics.

‘Our new dishes aim to stay within the American food ‘comfort zone’, but we still want to liven up our current offerings,’ said Gerard Lewis, Boston Market executive chef. ‘These gourmet items are not what you’d traditionally see at a fast-casual restaurant. You will experience new, bold flavors that will leave your mouth watering.’

Classic side dishes are getting a makeover, too. Boston Market’s Mac & Cheese will still be available, but in addition, restaurants will offer the Four-Cheese Cavatappi: corkscrew-shaped pasta noodles made from 100% durum wheat semolina, blended with a mix of Swiss, Gruyere, Asiago and Romano cheeses and a touch of Dijon. And, the new Garlic Spinach dish mixes steamed, tender-leaf spinach with shaved Parmesan cheese and savory garlic.

The newest soup, Classic Minestrone, offers a hearty blend of diced tomatoes, Spanish onions, cabbage, spinach, kidney and garbanzo beans, in a traditional Italian-herb broth.

And for dessert, Boston Market’s tart Cherry Cobbler combines tart Michigan cherries in a sweet fruit filling with a crunchy streusel topping of cinnamon, oats, and brown sugar.

These products are available in stores now.
