Smithfield announced the launch of SaborSmithfield.com, its first-ever multimedia Spanish-language website highlighting a series of partnerships with renowned Latino chefs across the country. To celebrate the launch, Smithfield partnered with James Beard award winner and Latin-American Chef Jose Garces, who created flavorful recipes featuring Smithfield Fresh Pork – a line of hand-selected and hand-trimmed fresh pork that offers consumers quality, freshness, and versatility for any meal.
Jose Garces, distinguished chef and restaurateur, 2009 recipient of the James Beard Foundation “Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic” award, and winner of Food Network's “The Next Iron Chef” leveraged his culinary expertise and Hispanic roots to create mouthwatering and innovative twists on traditional Latin dishes, while highlighting the flavor of Smithfield Fresh Pork.
“We are honored to expand our partnership with Jose Garces to bring restaurant-quality fresh pork recipes to Hispanic homes across the country, and offer a variety of delicious and easy to cook recipes in our new Spanish-language website,” said Dedra Berg, senior director of fresh pork marketing for Smithfield Foods. “Our partner chefs like Chef Garces know the importance of using the best quality ingredients in their dishes, and that is why they select Smithfield Fresh Pork in their kitchens.”
