Chef Linkenheil developed recipes to inspire others to think creatively when cooking with mangos. “Utilizing different varieties of mangos as well as cooking with mangos at various stages of ripeness allowed me to explore a wide array of mango applications with their varied flavors, colors, and textures,” she says. “The beautiful floral aroma and flavor of mangos pair well with many world flavors, and makes them a versatile, delicious, and fun ingredient on your menu.”

“Our foodservice program success in using fresh mango on menus rests in knowing the basics of how to order and handle this super fun superfruit,” says Valda Coryat, director of marketing at the National Mango Board. “In addition, the remarkable versatility and nutrient density of fresh mango—the world’s most popular fruit—across all dayparts, on food and beverage menus, and in sweet and savory applications can bring a tremendous lift in menu item sales.”

The video series was produced by the CIA’s Digital Media team, which has won two James Beard Awards for Best Webcast. View the module at
