The Newest Trends Among Catering Companies In Canberra
Another year means another wave of interesting trends washing over the industry. The year 2015 saw the rise of local sourcing of produce, more vegetarian and gluten-free menu options, gourmet and unique flavours of ice cream and other desserts, and the introduction of combo (also known as “mash-up”) dishes. Now 2016 is looking to introduce even more new concepts for catering companies in Canberra.
It looks like the trend towards healthy options will continue to grow. More and more people are concerned about nutrition, and they want to make sure that everything they’re consuming fits their specific dietary profile. Vegetarians and vegans don’t have the market cornered on this particularity, though; expect “Paleo” and “Primal” diet enthusiasts to start making their presence known as well.
In spite (or perhaps because of) all of the health-conscious dining, bacon is still here in a big way. Expect to find bacon varieties of just about everything you can imagine. Bacon pastries, bacon filled sausage, bacon biscuits. Is there anything this perfect cut of pork can’t complement? As a result of this trend, expect higher demand for better cuts of meat, along with fancier wine, and just better quality everything. People are willing to pay for the good stuff, and that’s great for everyone!
Multi-cultural and multi-coloured options are also on the rise. The infusion of Middle Eastern flavour, South Asian inspiration, and even African tastes are becoming more and more popular. It’s a great opportunity for chefs to go all out and really show off their cooking know-how.
