2019 Food Trends
More Veganism growth is anticipated with good old vegetables making a comeback, root vegetables in particular. Also, with their coconut like flavour, fig leaves are expected to make an appearance, along with honey as many restaurants installing their own bee-hives, to infuse with a variety of flavours from spicy chilli to distinct flower flavours.
Ice cream is getting a make-over, with local suppliers making unusual savoury, as well as sweet flavours. Look out for products like avocado, hummus, tahini and cheese appearing in favourite frozen dessert.
