As the world returns to a certain form of normalcy, new catering trends arise at a quick pace. Whether we adore them or choose to overlook them, food trends have individuals riled every year. There were some unforeseen culinary themes that did well during the year, and 2023 will be no exception. As we look ahead to the coming year, traveling, climate-friendly dining and healthy eating will strongly influence some of 2023’s hottest trends in food. Learn more from Sarita Bazaz, founder of The Food Affairs, one of the topmost luxury catering services in Gurgaon about which cuisine trends are expected to rise to the top in the upcoming year and remain for a considerable time.
One of the most significant trends is people’s keen interest in knowing their food source. Transparency in food service will be seen to grow more popular as people are becoming more conscientious, informed, and aware of what they are eating.
Climate change responses
The food industry confronts the effects of climate change along with the environment. Even while long-term sustainable measures are still too infrequently taken, there is a shift in outlook. Businesses now more than ever have a responsibility to accept responsibility and contribute to averting climate catastrophe. A localized experience that caters to the geographical conditions of the area is now widely valued in addition to being an effective method of food service. The ingredients that are readily available and appropriate for the season can also be taken into consideration when preparing food.
Progress towards greater sustainability
In addition to our international catering services, the integration of sustainability into our offerings is a fundamental component of our service. This includes sourcing ingredients locally, engaging with ecologically conscious vendors, and eliminating food waste. Today, more and more catering companies are seen going green and employing locally produced ingredients to lower their carbon footprint.
One sees a lot of evocative or nostalgic ideas being exchanged with each other bringing back the early 2000s trends, which leads people to long for comfort food that rekindles happy moments from home or simpler times when life was much more free-spirited and less stressful. Familiar flavors will be a rage as people crave dishes, which they know will make them feel at peace through an emotional connection not only through taste but also composition.
Pairings of sweet & salty
Even though the hot and sweet combination is still prevalent, savoury and salty flavours are growing wider as they provide the foods with a distinct complex flavor.
Fusion of daily life cuisine
Along with incorporating new foods and other cuisines, there seems to be a growing interest in fusing and blending kitchen traditions and styles. Joyful experimentation with ingredients and preparation techniques has been inspiring many and is continually expanding in the shape of new well-liked recipes. It’s time to accept fusion as the new normal and embrace glocalization!
So, let’s look forward to seeing how the values of transparency, creativity, flexibility, safety, and sustainability will play out in small as well as high-end catering services in more nuanced ways in the coming year.
