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.
Low key, short to no stem
Brightly coloured, eclectic, cut crystal
Nordic minimal, stone, earthenware
Ultra patterned, textured, lively
Experiences and Entertaining
Simple, pure, stripped back
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
Clean, white, lace
Vibrant, prints, sweet pastels
Hybrid, Mash ups, fusion
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
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
