Vegan Food

The after-effects of the Amazon rainforest fire have been lethal, so much so that even top New York restauranteur, Eddie Huang urged to go vegan, as a step towards saving the environment. Expect to see a lot of fresh ingredients and a farm-to-table concept in every restaurant. Veganism is the hottest food trend with an ethical stance, and we are sure it is going to trend on Instagram and otherwise for a long time.

According to Globe News Wire, " The (Kombucha) market is likely to expand at a double-digit growth rate by 2025." This says a lot about the Kombucha food trend that was once restricted to the health food store. The fermented drink combines brewed tea, sugar and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. Talk about artisanal drinks, Kombucha surely will top the list.

Citrus-Infused Dessert

Citrus infused food is no longer just restricted to lemon pie or cakes, it has swiftly graduated to the mainstream dessert sphere, where it is used as an ingredient to intensify the taste of a dessert. Think about orange peel tiramisu and grapefruit meringue. It would also help to add a pop of colour to your Instagram feed and make it extremely desirable.
