As our appetite for healthy food continues to grow, so does what many call the ‘visual cuisine’. The one that lets us take a pretty picture and brag about what we put on our plates. Here are some 2016 food trends from all of our favourite foodie instagramers.
Zoodles. One of the most popular dishes of all time has experienced a 13% sales drop in Europe. The carbohydrate pasta we all love is being taken over by a green version. Spiral carrot and specially Zuccini have became a healthier alternative to pasta lovers all around. Photo: instagram @mealpassapp.
Açai. This Brazilian fruit has become big thanks to bloggers and influencers who treat their porridge bowls or smoothies like works of art. Photo: instagram: @theblondewaffle.
Raw milk Cheese. It’s not only about the rise of vegan and ‘green’ food. Raw milk cheese continues to gain momentum. We’re talking about Le Gruyère AOP, Roquefort, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Grafton Village Cheddar, Pont-l’Évêque (a personal favorite of Prince Charles). Photo: instagram @foodofvisuals.
Beertails. What was once a sin is now a trend. Beers are mixed as if they were a regular cocktails and seem to be the new gin-tonics. Photo: instagram @greatist
Avocado oil. As if the avocado wasn’t popular enough, the oil is now tempting its advocates. Photo: instagram @chefsroll
Poke. The new Hawaiian version of raw fish is here to stay. This popular salad is made with diced raw fish, soya sauce, nuts, mango, onion, chile, ginger…you name it. Photo: instagram @youstayhungrysd
