The Top 7 Food Trends of 2020

Over the last decade, we’ve seen it all—from Instagrammable rainbow bagels to acai bowls, kale, Flexitarianism, edible gold, and a side of avocado on—well—everything. But what over-the-top, mouth-watering, and just-plain delicious foods will 2020 bring? We’ve rounded up the top 7 trends to look out for this year! Hint: Color is Key.

1. Vibrant, Colorful Foods

We admit it, the majority of our social media feed is dedicated to the most colorful, aesthetically pleasing foods out there. Rest assured: your Instagram-worthy brunch is here to stay. Picture rainbow veggies, dragon fruit, squid ink pasta, and Ube—the Filipino purple sweet yam. Need a spot of color to brighten your day? Check out our Acai Yogurt Parfait here!

2. Crafted Cocktails

It’s all about the experience, and what better way to make your event standout than with a hand-crafted cocktail? Minimal ingredients with a focus on carbonation (Prosecco anyone?), and innovative flavors will be key to making your event pop. Not in the mood for a hangover? Add a mocktail bar too! Did you know Gourmondo can make custom cocktails and mocktails? Take a look at our menu!

3. Plant-Based Protein

The focus on nutrition is undeniable. In 2020, the health benefits of plant-based proteins will remain on top, with a focus on whole ingredients and flavorful options. High protein grains, beans, seeds, and nuts are the perfect addition to any meal! Our Sedona Vegetable Bowl is a perfect plant-based option when you’re on the go!

4. Superfoods

These powerhouse foods can go on virtually anything. Vibrantly colored fruits and veggies like avocado, beets, and microgreens signal phytonutrients present in each bite. Sprinkle on salad, snack on the go, or season your entrée. Don’t forget to top it off with a teaspoon of MCT oil (a healthy fat), immune-boosting spices like turmeric, or your favorite stress-reducing adaptogen. Get your healthy eating on with our Roasted Beet Salad!

5. Fusion Cuisine

Why have one when you can have it all? A combination of cross-cultural cuisines and various cooking styles, these unique creations can offer a delightful new take on a classic dish. Ramen Burger? Lasagna Burritos? Korean BBQ Tacos? How about Green Curry Panna Cotta? We’ll take one of each please.
