What's the newest food trend?

More than one type of milk. Open fire cooking as a unique touch. Like a shadow, a ghost kitchen works to spread dark foods. Actually, food of all kinds, but only takeaway food.

Last year, The Manual covered ghost kitchens with the most popular foods on TikTok through Virtual Dining Concepts (VDC). VDC co-founder Robbie Earl told Bloomberg Business Week that VDC expects to start with 300 locations in TikTok Kitchen before expanding to 1000 next year. These ghosts have emerged in chain restaurants such as Buca di Beppo, which has been easy, since the elderly Robert Earl is also the owner of those establishments. Wendy's is following suit and plans 700 ghost kitchens over the next five years.

Yelp now has the “Virtual Kitchens” option to help you find ghost kitchens in your area. And Delish transmitted information that market research firm Euromoniter suggested that this could be a “trillion-dollar industry” in the next 10 years. While sustainable packaging may be the main objective of restaurateurs, the food industry focuses on plants, edible plants. These range from plant-based proteins to potato milk.

If you haven't noticed the trend yet, it seems that there has been a change in the nature of takeaway packages that were delivered from restaurants in approximately the past year. The national push toward sustainable packaging in urban centers in the U.S. The US seems to have been the last domino chip to fall. A ghost kitchen is a restaurant kitchen set up to cook and prepare food for home delivery only, meaning you can't come in and sit down and you can't pick it up.

Wendy's will open 700 more such kitchens in the next five years, while Euromoniter, a market research company, suggests that the industry could reach an enormous value of trillions of dollars (yes, with a t) in the next decade. Yelp even has a feature to help you discover new ghost kitchens in your area, called Virtual Kitchens. We've already seen Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat infiltrate the menus of fast food chains, and maybe you've even seen them at your favorite local burger joint. The report also indicates that consumers are refocusing on the foods that are best for them after choosing comfort foods during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It would be strange to see that this collision of dietary trends occurs even when people continue to stay at home, if it weren't for the need involved. Herbaceous and more ecological flavors are also expected to appear, which will highlight a cultural shift towards food and beverage trends with more natural flavors. A fancy way of saying “regular cannabis-infused food”, mood food has been gaining popularity on social media for some time. But naturally, the X factor of any food trend is the way people respond to flavors and textures that are new to them.

Healthy foods and reusable or recyclable restaurant supplies are more abundant than ever in food establishments.
