A Bold Take on Seasonal Classics

11/10/2015 02:32AM ● Published by Family Features

Push your taste buds’ boundaries as the holiday season approaches with bold flavors and new spins on classic seasonal favorites, including savory pork recipes.

As host of the Food Network’s “Chopped,”Ted Allen knows a thing or two about experimenting with different flavors in seasonal dishes, making heartburn an occupational hazard in his line of work. That’s why Allen has teamed up with the PEPCID® brand and its Tastemakers program to enable foodies in their pursuit of great tastes.

“Whether trying new restaurants or tasting dishes on set, I keep their products on hand because they act fast and last, taste great and prevent my heartburn from getting in the way of enjoying a variety of bold flavors,” Allen said.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grape seed or other neutral oil
  • 1 large shallot, sliced into thin rounds
