Popular FOOD TRENDS to look out for this year

Want to know what Aussies will be making in the kitchen this year?

It seems 2022 is the year of TikTok food hacks. We’ve seen a lot over the last few years, but it seems this year it will ramp up even more. Plus, this year there’s an EVEN bigger push for people to eat healthier.

Here are some other awesome food trends predicted for the coming months….

Food trends to look out for this year

1. Instant pots / pressure cookers

2020 was the year of the pie maker and 2021 became the year of the air fryer. And it seems Instant Pots or Pressure Cookers will reign this year.

It may be because there’s a limited supply of meat in the supermarkets right now. So pressure cookers will help make even the toughest meat taste supple – thanks to the high pressure under which it’s cooked.

2. Local produce

Another trend stemming from the latest wave of COVID and food shortages. Aussies are set to look for local produce this year. We’re all turning to the butchers and greengrocers, as supermarkets shelves are bare. It looks like 2022 is all about sourcing that fresh local produce.

3. A bigger emphasis on lunch

Forget the soggy ham sandwiches we used to bring into the office. Lunch is going to be bigger, bolder and better than ever before with more people working from home.

4. Vegan-inspired meals

How to go VEGAN when you have a tight budget

With it becoming harder to find meat, more and more of us will start trying out different vegan alternatives.

According to a recent survey by the Vegan Society, the number of people living off a plant-based diet has increased by more than 360% in the last decade.

5. Smaller menus

Due to supply issues, our fave cafes and restaurants may reduce their menu and focus on a few signature recipes to make better quality meals.

6. Charcuterie boards

They became a BIG hit during lockdowns when restaurants were closed and everyone went on picnics. There are so many different types of platter plates available in the stores, so it looks like more of us will try putting together our own charcuterie boards and cheese platters this year.

7. Oat milk chocolate

Shoppers are searching for plant-based products and this includes treats… Hello oat milk chocolate. A dairy-free sweet treat that has less calories than your usual choccie bar.

8. Non-alcoholic beverages
