Going vegan, gluten-free and even alcohol-free are trends that quickly become ways of life as people begin to feel better about their diets. What we will be opposed to are sausage tables, which, in reality, are a constant trend. This includes its alternative versions, namely, the butter board, a variation that in Food & Wine we explained earlier as “similar to a cheese board or sausages”, but with “softened butter” decoratively placed on a cutting board, sometimes shaped like a sea wave or molded to maintain the shape of a flower. In some cases, butter is garnished with ingredients such as flaky salt, seeds, and spices.
Slices of bread, crackers, or crunchy vegetables such as radishes or carrots are served for dipping. As consumers shift their preferences toward foods that boost immunity and promote health, fermented foods are still on their list of favorites. While formal federal regulations on THC in food and beverages are not finite, that hasn't stopped food companies from adding it to products or chefs and bakers from experimenting with different types of buds on their plates. However, many of you also took a serious stance in favor of racial and social equality and joined the fight for food sovereignty of marginalized bipoc communities that are reclaiming and owning their food systems.
Herbaceous and more ecological flavors are also expected to appear, which will highlight a cultural shift towards food and beverage trends with more natural flavors. Thanks to viral videos on TikTok and learning about the region's favorite dishes on major culinary television, there are many ways in which a gastronomic trend can be reborn or reinvented.
