We wish our beloved readers a joyful and prosperous year ahead.
Since this is our first article of the year, we think it’s an opportune time to have a look at the foods we are going to be seeing more of this year. So, without further adieu, let’s begin with this little list that's a result of our Internet sleuthing.
Instagram fuelled food culture continues and we are expected to be seeing more and more of aesthetically alluring foods in 2020. These include dishes that include photogenic ingredients such as the star anise, dishes made with squid ink, and desserts such as ice cream made from Philippines’ purple yam ube.
Many things cauliflower
The food scene of 2019 saw cauliflower gnocchi, cauliflower rice and cauliflower pizza crust. And this cauliflower trend is expected to continue way into 2020 as more and more people opt for no or low carb diets.
Plant based proteins
2019 was buzzing with plant-based proteins such as chia seeds, quinoa, hempseeds and so on. And the buzz is set to become even louder as now even fast food chains like KFC and Burger King offer plant based meat alternatives.
Non-diary milk alternatives
Plant based milks such as almond milk, cashew milk and oat milk have been becoming increasingly popular within the last few years and this is something that we are expected to see more of this year.
Harissa is a chilli paste from North Africa and this year, this spicy concoction is said to be the condiment of choice for marinates, burgers, salads and more.
