WHY THE AMERICAS

The Americas are the melting pot of history, spices and cooking techniques. We travel here for the second quarter of Dole’s culinary exploration of globally inspired and regionally specific street food. We’ve chosen recipes influenced by the place where Dole found its start, Hawaii, the jungles and history of the Yucatán and the uniquely colorful and fresh cuisine of the Pacific Coastal region of Peru.
