SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blue Diamond Almond Breeze is hitting the road and coming soon to a city near you, starting with Miami, Florida at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, February 24-26. The Homegrown Goodness Tour offers a chance for consumers across the country to visit Blue Diamond’s beautiful almond orchard kitchen, cook with food expert Patty Mastracco, and taste iconic dishes inspired by their own hometown – made with an Almond Breeze twist.

“We want to inspire consumers to think outside of the glass when it comes to Almond Breeze,” said Suzanne Hagener, Group Marketing Manager at Blue Diamond Growers. “Almond Breeze fans know and love our almondmilk’s delicious taste, but beyond cereal and smoothies they can also keep it in the pantry and cook with it. From soups and savory favorites to baked goods and desserts – we can’t wait to share its versatility and show how great it tastes in locally-inspired cuisine.”

At Miami’s highly anticipated South Beach Wine and Food Festival, Almond Breeze will feature two dishes inspired by regional flavors: Creamy Cubano, a satisfying ham sandwich with pickles and mustard made even more comforting with a luscious cheese sauce prepared with Original Unsweetened Almond Breeze, and Key Lime Pie, a sweet and tart favorite enhanced by the slightly nutty flavor and creamy texture of Hint of Honey Vanilla Almond Breeze in place of cream.

After Miami, the 2017 Homegrown Goodness Tour will join marquee events in the following cities while featuring the following recipes:

Dallas, Texas: Texas Chili and Cornbread
Los Angeles, California: Cold Avocado Soup with Tortillas
San Francisco, California: Cheese Fondue with Sourdough
