Social Media is Booming more than ever in 2019. We seem to have developed a new ritual around eating. If a plate looks appealing to the eye, we are quick to snap that plate, in different angles adding different filters – showcasing the beauty and quirkiness of the plate for all to contemplate.
Tagging and mentioning businesses in online platforms such as Instagram or Facebook, has given them a much larger exposure and free publicity forcing Businesses to improve and constantly renovate their menus, creating attractive, inventive and “never before seen” Plating worth sharing.
The 2019 culinary trends look to be reflective of a young clientele that is demanding healthier alternatives, better eating experiences and more responsible sourcing of ingredients, packaging and production as well as good looking plates.
