Hospitality has seen a lot of trends hit the market over the years. While some become permanent fixtures, others thankfully disappear when the next big thing comes along. In 2018, we saw the continued rise of vegan options, fermented foods and a European style of eating and drinking.
The industry is heading towards a single-focus mantra, with venues sticking to a concept they can really nail. Cooking proteins over charcoal has become commonplace and natural and biodynamic varieties make an appearance on most wine lists. Native Australian ingredients are making their way into more dishes and we’re witnessing the rise of a casual dining experience over formal fine dining. While we’ve selected 6 trends, our prediction is 2019 will be the year of less is more!
