Grapes in Foodservice


Grapes from California are an important staple in foodservice kitchens today.  Why?  Because fresh grapes are:

    - Always ripe and ready to use

    - Versatile – fresh, roasted, grilled, sautéed and even pickled

    - Compatible – with greens, grains, seafood, poultry and more

    - Beautiful – colorful green, red and black varieties

    - Readily available – May through January

    - Balanced – sweetness plus acidity

    - Bursting with juicy flavor


Within this website you’ll find ideas and recipes courtesy of the California Table Grape Commission and fellow foodservice professionals.  We’ve also included information about grapes and health, downloadable brochures, recipe cards and more!  Enjoy.
