Industry News: Apple Cheddar Rosemary Wins Quaker’s ‘Bring Your Best Bowl’ Contest

 

 

Karen D. of Boston Wins $250,000 Through Quaker's Contest with her Savory Apple Cheddar Rosemary Oatmeal Inspiration

CHICAGO, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- America has spoken, Apple Cheddar Rosemary takes the grand prize. The Quaker Oats Company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., today announced that Karen D. of Boston submitted the winning flavor and will take home the grand prize of $250,000 for Quaker's Bring Your Best Bowl Contest. Her Instant Oatmeal flavor, Apple Cheddar Rosemary, is on shelves nationwide starting this month.

"We created the Bring Your Best Bowl contest to inspire people to think about the versatility of oats, and that's exactly what our winner Karen delivered with her unique flavor combination," said Becky Frankiewicz, senior vice president and general manager of Quaker Foods North America. "For 140 years, Quaker has been committed to bringing the whole grain goodness of oats to more people in more ways, more often, and we are so excited to continue to do so with this new savory oatmeal."

Karen is a resident of Boston where she works in the communications industry. When her fiancé had surgery and could no longer eat crispy foods, she started whipping up oatmeal as a dinner staple. Looking to put a new twist on dinner, Karen created an oatmeal recipe that transformed the savory flavors of her signature apple, cheddar and rosemary flatbread into a flavorful dish her fiancé could enjoy. Made with a delicious blend of savory and sweet, combined with an aromatic hint of rosemary, the dish inspired her winning Bring Your Best Bowl submission and is now the newest Quaker Instant Oatmeal flavor.

"I have a passion for cooking and love developing new, unique recipes that use everyday staples from my pantry, especially oatmeal because of how versatile it is," said Karen. "Through this contest, Quaker inspired me to expand my creativity to transform one of my favorite recipes into an oatmeal flavor everyone can enjoy, any time of day."

The Bring Your Best Bowl contest challenged people to submit ideas for the next Quaker oatmeal flavor using two to five ingredients. Last fall, three finalists were selected from more than half a million submissions, and the limited-time flavors were made available at stores nationwide, giving America the chance to sample and vote for their favorite, and Apple Cheddar Rosemary came out on top.

The two runner-up finalists, who submitted Vanilla Chai and Lemon Ricotta Pancake, will each receive $5,000 to recognize their unique and creative inspirations.

Instant Quaker Oatmeal Apple Cheddar Rosemary is now available on store shelves nationwide for a limited time. For more recipe inspiration and to learn more about the contest visit BringYourBestBowl.com.

About Quoats

We started Quoats when we found it difficult to find tasty, healthy breakfasts on the go, so decided to make our own!

We've carefully selected a blend of oats, quinoa and flax for a breakfast that gives you a great nutritional start to the day as well as being delicious and filling.

Rob and Jen both have farming backgrounds - Jen grew up on a dairy farm in Shropshire and Rob lives on a mixed farm in Yorkshire - so we understand the importance of knowing how and where your food is grown. That’s why we've chosen oats, quinoa and flax which are all grown in Britain.

(Being farmers also means we know the importance of a good breakfast!)

We'd love to hear what you think so please get in touch!

Jen & Rob

PS - porridge isn't just for breakfast – try it for pudding, or as an afternoon snack!

About the company

Growing up in Kenya, our founder, Nick, enjoyed the many benefits of a wholesome breakfast made with nutrient-packed grains like millet and sorghum. Now that he lives in New York City, he's learned that every region of the world is unique and holds the treasure of a nutritious grain or seed that has helped its population to survive and thrive. However, his busy lifestyle doesn't afford him the time he needs to make the same type of breakfast his mother used to make for him.

Thus was born UJI: our team finds the best grains that each region of the world can offer, and puts them into delicious and super-nutritious smoothies that you and your family can drink at home or on the go.

Drink UJI, and know you are getting the best nutrition from around the world.

About the company

The Bakery On Main story started in the small bakery of a natural foods market on Main Street in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Founder Michael Smulders listened to his Celiac customers complain about the taste of many of the gluten free options available to them. He thought that no one should have to suffer because of a food allergy or other special dietary need, and made it his mission to create products that would make my customers happy

Today, that mission has expanded to not only make our customers happy with great-tasting gluten free products, but spreading a little bit of happiness to everyone we meet and work with. The Bakery also likes to encourage others to think about things that make them happy and to do something to make yourself, a family member, a friend, or even a complete stranger happy.

Now our bakery is bigger, but we still bake in small batches. We hope you love our products as much as we love creating them for you.

Food Spotlight: Clearspring Organic Oat Amazake – Sweet Grains Dessert

 

 

Clearspring Sweet Grains Dessert - Amazake is made using time honoured production processes and just 3 simple organic ingredients - water, whole grains and a pinch of salt. These undergo true alchemy to produce this thick, creamy, dairy free traditional Japanese dessert.

In Japan Amazake, translated as “sweet sake”, is normally consumed as a drink where it is diluted with hot water, sieved and drunk as a comforting winter warmer. However it is very versatile and can also be used to add texture and protein to your favourite fruit smoothie, natural sweetness to pancakes and muffins or as a batter to make dairy free French Toast.

 

Ingredients: Water, oats* (24%), cultured rice*, sea salt.
*Organically grown

 

 

What is Amazake?

Literally translated as “sweet sake” a koji culture converts the carbohydrates from the whole grains into simple sugars giving rise to the naturally sweet flavour of amazake.

In Japan Amazake is normally consumed as a drink where it is diluted with hot water, sieved and drunk as a comforting winter warmer. However it is very versatile and can be used in lots of European dishes too. For example adding Amazake to your favourite fruit smoothie adds proteins, texture and natural sweetness but it could also be added to pancake batter, muffin mixes or used to make dairy free French Toast. Deliciously thick and creamy it is hard to believe its made from dairy free ingredients!

Clearspring Amazake is made using time honoured production processes and just 3 simple organic ingredients - water, whole grains and a pinch of salt - undergo true alchemy to produce this thick, creamy, dairy free traditional Japanese dessert.

FREE FROM: Dairy, Wheat, Gluten (except for the Oat) , Added Sugar, Nuts
