Food Trends: What's Hot Right Now?

In the ever-evolving world of gastronomy, it is important for restaurants and businesses to move forward and adapt to current gastronomic trends - from plant-based diets to innovative culinary techniques. Let's dive into what's trending and how businesses around the world are adapting to it.

Plant Revolution

One of the most significant shifts in recent years has been the surge in popularity of plant-based diets. Veganism and vegetarianism have become a way of life for many people. Many have realised the importance of their health and are increasingly opting for plant-based alternatives. The reasons are health, ecological but also ethical. 

Restaurants have responded to this growing trend by incorporating vegan and vegetarian dishes into their menus. From vegan burgers made with plant-based patties to hearty vegetarian bowls. Many chefs are taking this as a challenge - to create innovative dishes without using meat.

Flexitarianism

Another trend that is gaining momentum is flexitarianism, which involves a predominantly plant-based diet with occasional consumption of meat and animal products. Flexitarians want to reduce meat intake without committing to a fully vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. This approach to eating reflects a growing awareness of the environmental and health impacts of meat consumption. 

Local Foods

People are becoming increasingly aware of where their food comes from and the impact it has on the environment. This is why there is a growing demand for sustainably sourced and locally produced ingredients.

Restaurants are responding by highlighting the provenance of their ingredients and incorporating seasonal, locally sourced items into their menus.

Functional Foods

There is a growing interest in foods that offer functional benefits beyond basic nutrition. That is, ingredients that are believed to promote health and well-being such as turmeric, matcha and adaptogens. Restaurants and food manufacturers are incorporating these ingredients into their products to appeal to health-conscious consumers.

Alternative Crops

Other cereals such as quinoa, amaranth, farro and teff are also gaining interest due to gluten sensitivity. They are also gaining popularity because of their nutritional values and unique flavours.


These are a few food trends that have become popular in recent years. As consumer preferences are constantly evolving, it is very likely that we are yet to see interesting developments in the world of food.
