We’ve seen a whole lot of food come and go the past 10 years, but which got second helpings? As we enter the 20’s, we look back at the biggest food trends from the last decade…
The rise of bread
The artisan baking craze saw us quit quitting carbs and dough-lighted in the return of bread. Alongside sliced white, we went mad for sourdough, soda bread, seeded loaves and more. Then we toasted it and smothered it in avocado, naturally.
No moo milk
It’s not just skimmed, semi or full fat in the fridge these days. The 2010s shook things up in the milk department by putting the likes of almond, oat, coconut and, er, camel on the milk map.
Air-fried food got fabulous
Wheelie good street food
Global treats took to the streets and the popularity of food carts soared. Nowadays we don’t just head to the chippy for a takeaway, we check out a curry truck, tex-mex van or pulled pork wagon too. Meals on wheels never tasted so good.
Dressing for dinner became all about garnishing ours plate ready for their Instagram close ups. Smoothie bowls, sushi and ramen were some of the most snapped dishes, while a humble egg racked up over 50 million likes. Eggstraordinary.
That was one tasty decade! Wonder what’s on the menu for the next one?
