Food trends you won’t want to miss this summer

We’re living in a world of food trends, and every day brings new ones to try. That’s why it can be so hard to keep up with what’s new, what’s hot and what’s worth trying.

But don’t worry! We've narrowed it down for you.

Here are five summer food trends we believe you shouldn’t miss out on:

Cauliflower Crust

Not only is cauliflower crust an extremely delicious health-conscious option, but some will be pleased to know that it’s also gluten-free. This trend has been appearing all over the internet recently, and it’s not going to go away anytime soon.

A cauliflower pizza crust is also low in calories, which makes it a great option for dieters and those looking to cut back on carbs. Many pizza restaurants now offer cauliflower crust as an alternative to a traditional dough.

The best part about making your own cauliflower pizza is that you can make it as healthy or as indulgent as you want! You can use low-fat cheese, lean meats and fresh vegetables to create an entirely guilt-free meal that tastes delicious!

Alternative Milk

You might have seen soy milk, almond milk and coconut water on grocery shelves for years, but don’t be surprised if you start seeing more options in 2022.

Now that there's more than just cow's milk available at your local store, it's worth experimenting with these other options from around the world.

In recent years, the popularity of alternative milk has grown exponentially, with sales increasing by more than 50% in the past five years. Alternative milk is already a £1 billion industry and rising.

However, there are still many people who have yet to try them. And those who do consume them often don’t know that they have options other than soy, almond and coconut milk. So, why not experiment with some alternative milk this summer?

Nostalgic Desserts

Desserts from our childhood are coming back into fashion again, with the likes of sticky toffee pudding, treacle sponge and iced buns making their way onto menus all over the country.

If you're looking for a sweet treat that will take you back to your childhood, these are definitely worth trying out.

If you love baking, why not try making some nostalgic desserts for yourself? Get creative, put your own twist on the desserts you used to love when you were younger and see what you can come up with!

You could even try other nostalgic desserts such as lemon curd tarts or banoffee pie! Release your inner child, enjoy what you used to love and share with other friends and family members so you can all feel nostalgic together.

Low Waste Food

We've come a long way in our food journey. From the days when our grandparents cooked from scratch and ate what they grew, we've seen a shift towards convenience.

Nowadays, many of us have little time to cook or prepare meals, so it's no surprise that convenience foods and ready-to-eat products are on the rise.

But there's always been an environmental cost to convenience foods. A growing number of consumers are becoming aware of their carbon footprint and want to make their lives more sustainable.

So it's no wonder that low waste is one of the upcoming food trends in 2022.

Cooking Oils

When it comes to food, the hot new trend is going to be about cooking oils. You won't see olive oil or coconut oil as much in 2022. Instead, you'll see more sunflower seed oil and pumpkin seed oil.

Cooking oils are getting a makeover in 2021. The reason for this is that people want healthier options for their food, especially when it comes to cooking their meals at home.

For example, most people are looking for ways to reduce the amount of saturated fat in their diet and avoid trans fats altogether.

When it comes to cooking oils, there are two main types: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (or "good" fats).

These oils have been around since the beginning of time and were used by our ancestors because they're easy to digest and provide an immediate source of energy when consumed.

However, some experts say that these oils aren't as healthy as we think they are, especially when it comes to cooking our meals at home.

Pezzo D’Italia

If you’re in the mood for some familiar, authentic Italian cuisine, why not visit Pezzo D’Italia?

We offer the best tasting Italian food in London, with a great atmosphere and amazing chefs and staff who will be sure to make sure your time with us is as great as it can be.

With different cultures of food coming into play in 2022, it is definitely worth coming to try what we’ve got on offer, you might even argue that we’re the best thing since sliced bread.
