Event Food Trend #1: Instagramable Food

Instagram was basically invented to take pictures of our food and caterers are raising the bar in 2019 with delicious food that’s always ready for its close-up. Taking advantage of unique vessels and unexpected elements, immersive & innovative food displays will be all about BIG visual impact in the coming year. 

 

Event Food Trend #2: Eco-Friendly + Sustainable

Beyond local relationships and sustainable ingredients, consumers are looking to hire caterers that are eco-friendly with their disposable wares. Bio-degradable plates, cutlery, toothpicks and especially straws are increasingly in demand at events and we only expect to see this very good trend grow in 2019.

Event Food Trend #3: Doughnuts

The demand for doughnuts will hit a fever pitch in 2019 – as it should. Expect to see creative flavors (including savory) and doughnuts of every size as well as over-the-top displays for all kinds of sweet treats. This is definitely a trend we can get behind!

Event Food Trend #4: Breakfast Food All the Time

Brunch was a growing trend in 2018 and who doesn’t want to brunch all day?! Traditional breakfast and brunch foods will continue to be a big trend in 2019 but time constraints are off. Expect late night biscuit & candied bacon bars or lunchtime buffets with quiche & parfaits. Also, watch for more in international foods as morning staples from around the world start hitting our all-day breakfast buffets.

Event Food Trend #5: All. The. Carbs.

Artisan breads and dreamy bowls of mac & cheese here we come!  Cozy and comforting food will be in big demand as carbs make their comeback in 2019. Our smoked gouda grits with shrimp, herbed mashed potatoes, biscuit & crostini bars are just the beginning. This might just be the trend we are most looking forward to in 2019!
