Food & Menu Trends To Watch In 2016

The National Restaurant Association’s annual What’s Hot culinary forecast predicts food and menu trends for the coming year. For 2016, the NRA surveyed nearly 1,600 professional chefs – members of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) to find out what the hottest menu trends will be.

“True trends evolve over time, especially when it comes to lifestyle-based choices that extend into other areas of our everyday life. Chefs and restaurateurs are in tune with over-arching consumer trends when it comes to menu planning, but add their own twist of culinary creativity to drive those trends in new directions. No one has a better view into the window of the future of food trends than the culinary professionals who lead our industry.”
– Hudson Riehle, senior vice president of the National Restaurant Association’s research and knowledge group
