Fresh California Avocados: Menu Inspiration Grows On Trees

Irvine, CA — A California Avocado tree produces an average of about 150 avocados annually. Consider multipliers like nearly 5,000 California Avocado growers cultivating around 52,000 acres of trees, and the results equal a good supply of Fresh California Avocados throughout the season. That means creative chefs have six months to please customers with innovative Fresh California Avocado dishes. For example, Chef Nora Pouillon (Restaurant Nora, Washington DC) juxtaposes fruit colors and flavors in California Avocado Salad with Pineapple Carpaccio, Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Toasted Cashewsand Chef Rene Van Broekhuizen (McCormick & Schmick’s, Portland, OR) fashions a delectable appetizer called Fresh California Avocado Trio-Tree and Sea Combo.
