Frequently, schools, restaurants and other friends in the foodservice industry ask us for larger scale recipes to help them serve more whole grains. While we have an extensive collection of recipes with beautiful color photos here on the Whole Grains Council website, they are largely for the home cook and not what you need.
In 2007, we went to some of our favorite foodservice professionals and gathered 22 large-capacity recipes for our First Edition of Whole Grain Recipes for Foodservice. This was a great start, but we wanted more! We could think of no better way to boost our large-scale recipe collection than to ask entrants in the 2011 Whole Grains Challenge to submit their favorites to us. In they came – dozens of them – from commercial foodservice companies serving thousands of people a day, to school districts with ten schools, on down to neighborhood bistros serving three dozen diners a night. We pored through the list to create the Second Edition, in mid-2012, with 75 new foodservice recipes.
Whatever the size of your foodservice operation, we invite you to use your expertise and creativity to scale these recipes up or down to meet your needs for delicious whole grain dishes.
