There is just something kind of magical about the way food comes together. Think about it, the things we cook today all originate from some region of the world. Eating is a cultural experience we often don’t know we are having. I mean, who really stops to think about the influence behind the food we so unconcernedly put in our mouths?
Here, at Motion Technology Inc., we certainly do! Which is why we decided to dive in to one of our favorite new food trends, cultural combinations. We are going to take a look at the origins of one of the most exciting pairings to take the United States by storm, Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine.
For a long time, the distinctive flavors from south of the border and the eastern world have come together in harmony. Along the US-Mexican border, people have had the pleasure of indulging in this cultural mash up for over one hundred years. It began in the 1880’s when the Chinese Exclusion Act was put into place, limiting the work for Chinese immigrants in the United States. This led to an influx of people from Asian decent, migrating to Mexico and other Latin countries in hopes of finding employment opportunities. Thankfully today, the Chinese Exclusion Act is long gone, and Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine is finally getting the recognition it deserves.
No longer is this dynamic duo of flavors only found at specialty restaurants in states that line the Mexican border. Everywhere, consumers want to have a little fun with their food, and this means mixing it up with crazy cultural combos. Businesses are hopping on the banh mi burrito bandwagon, delivering unreal dishes to the hungry masses, and we would be lying if we said we weren’t doing the exact same thing!
At MTI, we love putting together recipes for our AutoFry and MultiChef XL that celebrate the unity of two types of cuisine that really bring the flavor. With our ventless kitchen equipment, it is easy to infuse tastes from different parts of the world into one delicious dish. We like to think if you can dream it up, you can serve it up with our machines. Whether it is Kung-Pao chicken quesadillas in the MultiChef XL, filled with hoisin marinated chicken and fresh roasted veggies, or El Pastor wontons in the AutoFry, filled with shredded pork, pineapple, and cotija cheese, your guests will not be disappointed.
Besides being able to produce amazing food, our equipment shines bright in many ways! No hoods or ventilation systems are required for our machines, so owners and operators save in otherwise costly expenses, allowing our clients to serve up the tastiest dishes possible, without breaking the bank. Furthermore, both our line of fryers and high-speed oven are easy to use, so they may be operated by just about any staff member. All of our products are easy to clean, and maintain, especially with the assistance of our daily and weekly cleaning guides!
So, what are you waiting for? Look into getting your MultiChef XL and AutoFry today and start bringing cultural combinations to your hungry patrons!
