May is here and spring is in full bloom—it can feel like the whole world of produce is available at your fingertips. Not so fast, though. Now is a great time to take a minute and consult which fruits, vegetables, and herbs truly are in season and which you may have to wait a little while longer for.

Why is this important to know? In our globally interconnected world, it’s relatively easy to get whatever produce you need for your restaurant or products at any time of the year. But produce that is out of season can be both poorer quality and much more expensive, eating into margins and costing your business extra money while still not always promising to give you the best possible finished product. More delicate fruits and vegetables that can’t be reliably preserved and stored for use throughout the year might be better off as part of limited edition and seasonal items.

This infographic from Daily Infographic is visually interesting and a great reminder of what’s at its peak right now and what’s right around the corner from being at its best.

IHOP Restaurants has rebranded, and will now be known IHOb, with the ‘b’ standing for burgers, the company has said.

The news of the rebrand was revealed next week, with speculation about what the ‘b’ may stand for, with guesses ranging from brunch to bananas.

In a release, IHOb said that change in fact celebrates the debut of the brand’s new Ultimate Steakburgers, a line-up of seven mouth-watering, all-natural burgers.

To show the brand is as serious about burgers as it is about its world-famous pancakes, it’s flipped the “p” to a “b” in their iconic name for the time being, including its Twitter handle.

A flagship IHOb restaurant in Hollywood, CA, has also been completely “re-burgered”, and will offer all of the company’s new range of burgers, with its Ultimate Stakeburgers to come in seven varieties.  

“Burgers are a quintessential, American menu item so it makes perfect sense that IHOP, one of the most iconic, all-American comfort-food brands in the world, would go over the top to create a delicious line-up of quality burgers that hit the spot any time of day,” said Chef Nevielle Panthaky, Head of Culinary at IHOb.

“Our new Ultimate Steakburgers are made with all-natural, 100% USDA Choice, Black Angus ground beef that is smashed on the grill to create a sear that locks in the juices and flavour.
