There was a time, we’ll call it 2016, when the idea of a dish designed purely for Instagram would have been outrageous. Today, less so. The way we eat, our expectations and taste, adapts over time as our collective appetites change. With them we see cultural change, too. The introduction of flavours from countries you’ve never visited bring those strangers closer. And, today, trends are dictated not just by Michelin chefs or glossy magazines, but by a thousand people sharing a phone picture of their avocado toast. Here’s what you’ll be eating next year, and if we’re wrong, we’ll eat our hat. As long as it’s fermented.
