Three top food trends for the NEW YEAR
Wolf Packs is always on the look-out for the new and different. Currently trending are three new perspectives on what is regarded and about to be accepted as every day food.
Root-to-stem eating. This means using and eating the entire fruit and vegetable, including the stems, leaves, and parts uncommon. The idea behind root-to-stem cooking is the need to reduce food waste, similar to nose-to-tail butchery. Expect to see more about the “don’t discard” movement.
Fungi, yes but mushrooms with healing properties—including chaga, reishi, and lion’s mane are being added to foods for their rich, umami flavours and various medicinal benefits ranging from anti-stress and anti-inflammatory to energy boosting and detoxifying, among others.
Hemp is on the menu. The amount of hemp-enhanced foods and experiences will escalate. The hemp seed revolution has already started and can be found infused into many different meals and snacks, so look out for this smoking-hot trend.
