Picture worthy breakfasts
Whether it be a big fry up or a fancy eggs benedict – breakfast has never been so popular. Businesses have witnessed a breakfast boom over the last few years, seeing the meal change from the basic bed and breakfast continental, to a meal standard with superior taste and ingredients. Restaurants in 2017 are set to cash in on the craze, using menus that include trendy flavours found in fried chicken, crispy chorizo and coarse cereal1.
Expected to be the most profitable breakfast trend of 2017 is the portable on-the-go breakfasts; providing practical and tasty breakfasts that will fit in with the fast paced millennial lifestyle.
Spice up your menu
Following a flavour forecast, research shows that 2017 will see a rise in middle-eastern and global spices such as coriander, cumin, and fennel1. The spice revelation will appear in breakfasts and many more, providing a boost to restaurant classics that are in need of a taste makeover. Lesser known spices such as cayenne pepper, caraway, saffron and lemongrass1 are also among those predicted to make an appearance in restaurant dishes.
The spices are predicted to be used in more innovative ways than ever, as chefs seek to provide a more memorable dining experience for customers; looking to spice up everything from salads to desserts.
Desserts you can’t get enough of
Just because the customers are getting health conscious, it doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in dessert – it just means they are craving them even more.
In 2016 we saw the Australian ‘freakshake’ become an epidemic as it sent the public into a frenzy over the luxury milkshake; whilst the freakshake has now moved over to America, England certainly isn’t short of sweet treats. Oddball ice creams are set to be the story of 2017, including superior candyfloss creations, and a surge of veggie ice cream flavours such as beetroot, sweet corn, pumpkin and sweet potato1.
