While we cannot predict the future, we have a good feeling about a few food trends that will be taking over menus this summer.
According to chef Melanie Townsend, these are the top three summer food trends to look out for in the warmer season.
Fresh produce, fresh flavours, fresh colours
It's all about local fresh produce, everyone is wanting to know where their food is coming from and they don't want to have their food plastic wrapped or stored for months.
Paddock to plate is one of the latest emerging trends and that is coming through on plates ready for the summer season. With the global trend being towards sustainable produce and reduced plastics, every home foodie is making a concerted effort to do their bit for the globe.
