Culinary Trends for Hotels (and How to Keep Up)
As the diet of the average traveler changes, you can expect them to want different things from your hotel restaurant, room service, or even breakfast. What are some of the main trends and how can you keep up with changing demand?
Food Trends for Travelers
More than ever before, travelers expect hotels to reduce their environmental footprint, use locally grown produce, and cater to the latest trends in food. Here are a few things to watch out for.
- Alternative diets – More and more travelers are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, keto, or dairy free. You have to think about it everywhere, even when providing milk for morning coffee. There should be at least one dairy free substitute for guests.
- Vegetable proteins – Lentils, chickpeas, and even green peas are all good protein options for vegetarians or vegans. Just about any type of bean will provide some animal-free protein as well.
- Ethnically diverse menus – People want to travel around the world on the menu, even if they are just going to a different state on the map. That means menus like Tex-Mex and Asian fusion are growing more popular.
