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.
â€˜The Italian culture is known for its emphasis on family and food, which was terrific inspiration and a natural fit for Boston Market,â€™ said Judy Cantrell, Boston Market chief brand officer. â€˜We want to offer the best of both worlds â€“ bringing the family together by taking the time and legwork out of meal prep, while still serving up gourmet, wholesome meals that taste homemade.â€™
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.
â€˜Our new dishes aim to stay within the American food Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcomfort zone’, but we still want to liven up our current offerings,â€™ said Gerard Lewis, Boston Market executive chef. â€˜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.â€™
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.
