The‘trends treadmill’ can be a challenge – at the end of each year, a wide variety of chefs, food writers and pundits come out with their predictions for the following 12 months. What will be hot and what will not – ingredients, flavours, concepts, cooking and service styles. Plus the brands they see growing and declining – it can be overwhelming! It’s also interesting to look back at predictions made in the last few year – some of them keep recurring.
In this episode Ken Burgin has surveyed 16 different food trend articles for 2016 and pulled together the key themes. It is important to be aware of changing trends – customer taste is changing, and new competitors suddenly appear and capture people’s imagination. TV is a constant influence. You can’t afford to ignore what’s going on around you.
