We’re officially living in 2019, which means it’s time to take a look at what food trends we can expect to see over the next few months. Some of these culinary trends have been around for years but are just regaining popularity now, many are brand new to the mainstream, and some might even stick around for decades to come.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular culinary trends we can expect to see during 2019:

Foods that are gut healthy

Since preserving and pickling foods have increased in popularity over the last few years, it seems as if gut-friendly foods will benefit as a result. Certain probiotics like miso, kefir, kimchi, as well as probiotics like garlic, onions, and other foods, will be consumed on a much more consistent basis in 2019.

Organic and vegetarian meat

Especially in certain parts of the country, organic eating and vegetarian trends will continue to grow in popularity. These healthy food options won’t just be found on individual grocery lists, either. There are plenty of Los Altos catering companies that will focus on healthy food serving at various events throughout the year. According to a Dinova survey, 78% of corporations include vegetarian options at their corporate events. Both Los Altos catering and Silicon Valley catering will help lead the nationwide trend of healthy food options at corporate catering events.

Food and tech coming together

Restaurants, catering companies, and even individual people will rely much more on technology when it comes to food options during 2019 and beyond. There are hundreds of smartphone apps out there that have all kinds of food-related features. Some eateries are even broadcasting videos of dishes being prepared and sharing ingredients lists via apps.

Avocado will reign supreme

You’ve probably already heard about avocado’s growing popularity if you are under the age of 35 (or know someone who is). But avocado is still on the rise and it seems like it’s popularity will grow all over the country and not just on the coasts.

Hopefully, this helps you prepare for all the food trends that are on their way over the next few months. Enjoy all your meals this year and if you want to get in touch with an experienced Los Altos catering company, contact Justin’s Catering and Event Productions today.
