Sustainability and natural products will mark the culinary year
The world of gastronomy and events is constantly evolving and to be at the forefront, it is essential to be aware of what the latest trends are. Seeds, spices or algae will be part of the gastronomic offer of the year. In this same line, local, natural and ecological foods will be rewarded.
With regard to the organization of events, both at weddings and business events, the food stations (foodtrucks, showcookings …) will continue to be fundamental. The preparation of packaging to offer take-away food comes with force, they will also be habitual during 2019 with the aim of offering a sustainable service.
Next, we tell you what we are going to taste and enjoy this 2019 in any event.
Sustainability is a must in many sectors. In the food too. It usually happens that the organizers of an event hire more food than is really necessary. To this we must add that guests always fail, so that finally there are always fewer diners than expected. That is why catering services increasingly bet by having packaging so that attendees can take the extra food. The purpose of this proposal is to prevent food from being thrown at the end of the event. Today is rare but we do not rule out that it becomes a regular in the parties and events that we attend.
Natural and seasonal preparations
In line with the previous trend and as it has happened in 2018, the bet for seasonal and natural foods, avoiding ultra-processed ones. Having local products is also a point that catering should take into account next year. With this, the menus must be very adjusted to seasonal foods, especially in terms of fruit and vegetables.
Within natural foods, we can not lose sight of seeds and spices such as chia, turmeric, flax … Their presence in all kinds of elaborations is increasingly frequent as well as the flavors and aromas they can bring, they count with a multitude of properties and health benefits.
The food stations at weddings and events will continue to be a trend. Food trucks are chosen by those who want to give a casual touch to your wedding or event. Although we must clarify that having food trucks or food stands does not prevent the offer of gourmet dishes and preparations that leave the mouth open to the guests. One of the advantages of opting with food trucks is that you can offer “personalized” menus for each guest since they will choose what to eat. There are Mexican, Italian, hamburgers, cheeses, creperies, sweets … the possibilities are “almost” infinite.
Showcookings are also common, especially at weddings, offering guests a show during the event.
Vanguard and traditional food
The fusion of flavors will also be a regular in the sector. Starting from good quality products by adding a different touch that can come, specifically, the fusion of flavors. We can find avocado or hummus ice cream, red fruit gazpacho or melon, for example. The flavors of traditional cuisine like. Elaborations such as broths, stews or even the classic croquettes are very popular. But you have to add something else, give them a plus to make these dishes irresistible.
