Condé Nast Traveler recently revealed its top food trends to look for in 2017. The publication synthesized several reports compiled by data analyst firms to come to the conclusion that plant-based proteins will be a top trend in the new year. “According to the influential annual report from culinary consultants Baum + Whiteman,” staff writer Jessica Voelker said, “we can expect more mind-bending meat-free foods in the coming year.” Voelker cited several global restaurants already offering creative meat-free mains including vegan ribs at Australian-based Suzy Spoon’s Vegetarian Butcher, vegetable charcuterie at New York City’s Ladybird, and a kelp noodle and cashew cream-based dish at vegan fine dining restuarant Plant Food + Wine in Miami, FL. Voelker further predicts that restuarants—even meat-centric ones—will continue to elevate vegetables as the stars of its menus in the new year.
