We’ve all heard that the menu of the future may involve less processed sugar and dairy and more plants and alternative proteins. Let’s take a closer look at the sustainable trends in the food industry.
At the same time, more fine-dining establishments are offering thoughtful plant-based menus with innovative preparations of fruit and vegetables and the world’s most famous chefs are replacing traditional proteins with the alternative proteins based menus. Although there are no vegan restaurants rewarded with a Michelin star, there are 14 Michelin Guide vegan restaurants.
Even traditional restaurants are embracing the vegan trend. Plant-based chef Matthew Kenney has revamped the menu of La Durée Beverly Hills, a well known French bakery. The bakery’s menu is now completely vegan and offers dairy-free macarons and eggless omelets. The experimental move marks Ladurée’s first completely dairy- and meat-free location in the world.
