TRENDS MENU 2014

We have researched, read, nibbled, sipped, spied and then devised our 2014 trend menu. Serving you only the most relevant of food trends and edible entertaining fashions.

Like most trend reports, nothing is certain, we have no crystal ball (just a crystal bowl) but one thing is clear, 2014 is set to be the year of polar extremes.

2014 hosts the fight between elegant simplicity and in your face, all-encompassing th’eat’rical experiences but you don’t have to pick one or the other,  we believe there is a time and place for everything.

AMUSE BOUCHE

Glassware

Low key, short to no stem

Or

Brightly coloured, eclectic, cut crystal

Plates

 Nordic minimal, stone, earthenware

 Or

Ultra patterned, textured, lively

STARTERS

Experiences and Entertaining

Simple, pure, stripped back

Or

More than you could have ever imagined. Super immersive and manipulated – think scented airs, emotive sound tracks and deconstructed then reconstructed dishes

Styling and Table Dressing

Re-purposed props

Clean, white, lace

 Or

Vibrant, prints, sweet pastels

MAINS

 Foods

Hybrid, Mash ups, fusion

Or

Modest wholesome

Drinks

More gins! Spiced, sloe, infused

Vermouths, white port (all good for making gin based cocktails)

Expect to see vegetable tea making an appearance  – depending on where you frequent and Chinese wines going mainstream

SIDES

Conscious – seasonal, rainbow, foraged, responsible & British

Cold pressed everything

Foods high in Polyphenols e.g. Blood oranges, broccoli, dark choc, and matcha tea….

Sugar is the current enemy

Eggs in everything, for every meal

Flexitarianism – Sporadic meat and fish consumption, it’s all the rage – apparently

Out with plain old butter, in with whipped butters, smoked butters, seasoned butters, infused oils, dry herb dips – Sumac and Za’atar (grind your own spices and mixes with our favourite spice grinder from Tom Dixon. Currently sold out but they are getting more stock at the end of the month

DESSERT

Claridge’s. Rogan. Anticipation

Foodstivals
