It’s a new year which means new foods trends. Every December public relation firms come out with reports that detail what new food trends to look out for this upcoming year. According to Editor in chief Dana Cowin at Food & Wine, “A good trend list requires everything from data and science to pure intuition.”

Annika Stensson, director of research communications for the National Restaurant Association believes the perfect 2017 food trend would be a fast-casual concept serving dishes with deep, heady African flavors. The dishes would be made with locally produced ingredients. Put this African dish into a bowl and you’ve got yourself another 2017 food trend. One of the top items that users post on Pinterest – which is used by 150 million people a month – are Buddha bowls. Food is bowls is pleasing to the eye and makes a great Instagram picture – and who doesn’t love a great Instagram picture? To read more about the trends of 2017 click here.
