One thing that I have realized is that trends do not just apply to fashion but they apply to culinary arts as well. With my recent visits to restaurants and cafes, these are three new trends in culinary arts that I have noticed…
- From ordinary to extraordinary side dishes! It seems like restaurants are kicking out the typical garlic mashed potatoes and cooked carrots to opt for much more alluring meal additions. Quinoa with pine nuts instead of rice? It is safe to say that side dishes are no longer the overlooked meal ‘co-star’.
Southeast Asian cuisine is quickly stealing the culinary spotlight. Although we will all always love our Italian and French food, restaurants have been incorporating more and more Southeast Asian inspireddishes into their menus, but, hey! I’m not complaining!
The array of mouthwatering culinary trends that are currently sweeping across restaurants are surely satisfying. What culinary trends do you see happening in 2014?
