Saffron Road Spices Up Summer with Four New Frozen Entrees
The brand’s heat-and-eat meals use mindfully-sourced, high-quality ingredients
to take eaters around the world in six minutes or less
STAMFORD, Conn. (June 20, 2023) – Today, Saffron Road Foods adds four new recipes to its lineup of delicious, frozen entrees: Moroccan-Inspired Chicken & Potatoes, Coconut Cauliflower Curry, Chickpea Masala and Chicken Enchiladas Al Chipotle. The dishes are inspired by the flavors of Morocco–a new region for the brand–India and Mexico respectively, and offer eaters the opportunity to travel around the world via their plate with each microwaveable entree, ready in six minutes or less.
“We’re very excited to introduce Morocco as the latest stop on our culinary Journey to Better®, and bring our customers the vibrant, earthy flavors of North Africa. We’re so proud of these new entrees and their ability to deliver restaurant-quality global meals right from your freezer,” said Chef John Umlauf, Senior VP of Culinary Operations. “At Saffron Road, our kitchens are held to the highest standards of culinary excellence, and our meals are prepared just like a restaurant with no shortcuts: we caramelize and deglaze the mirepoix and tomato paste, pan-roast the vegetables, and slow-simmer the sauces, all using authentic, wholesome ingredients native to the regions of each recipe.”
